After years of rumor and speculation, the first trailer for Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto VI has debuted. The trailer initially leaked less than a day before its planned debut, which prompted Rockstar to release it early. As rumored, GTA VI will take players to Vice City–and the broader state of Leonida–and is scheduled to launch in 2025 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Rockstar Games previously confirmed it was developing the next GTA game, but this is the first time we’re getting any level of detail on what to expect. Based on the trailer, it appears the rumors were also correct that GTA VI will feature two protagonists–a man and a woman. The female character appears to be an ex-con, and we see what looks like some form of in-game social media, as we see a lot of what TikTok- and Instagram Reel-style videos. There’s a Florida Man joke, too, and we see the Leonida wetlands in addition to Vice City, Rockstar’s take on Miami.

Other details include an airboat, an alligator being pulled out a backyard pool (and, later, one entering a store), police bodycam footage, the return of Weazel News, dirt bikes and quads, an apparent convenience story robbery, and lots of neon. You can check out some screenshots from the trailer above.
