The gaming world is abuzz with anticipation as Rockstar Games announces the release of the first trailer for the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series, GTA VI, in early December. The news was confirmed by Sam Houser, co-founder and president of Rockstar Games via X where he didn’t mention GTA VI directly but instead cited it as “Next Grand Theft Auto”.
Celebrating 25 Years of Rockstar Games
This announcement comes as Rockstar Games celebrates its 25th anniversary. Founded in 1998, Rockstar Games has been at the forefront of the gaming industry, creating games that have become essential to the culture of entertainment.
The Journey of Grand Theft Auto
The Grand Theft Auto series has been a significant part of Rockstar Games’ success. The last installment, Grand Theft Auto V, launched in 2013 and has sold over 185 million copies. The game’s success over the past decade sets a high bar for GTA VI.
What to Expect from GTA VI
GTA VI is expected to feature the series’ first female protagonist and will reportedly be set in a fictionalized version of Miami. This setting is reminiscent of 2002’s GTA: Vice City, adding a layer of nostalgia for long-time fans of the series.
The Road to GTA VI
The journey to GTA VI has been filled with anticipation and speculation. Rockstar Games first confirmed they were working on the next Grand Theft Auto in February 2022. Last year, a massive cache of footage from the game leaked, which Rockstar eventually confirmed.
As we await the release of the GTA VI trailer, the gaming community is filled with excitement. This new chapter in the Grand Theft Auto series promises to bring new experiences and continue the legacy of Rockstar Games.
