Rockstar Games has just announced the GTA 6 trailer release date on X (formerly Twitter). The first official trailer of the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto sequel will come out today as on December 5, 2023. Needless to say, the tweet has garnered a lot of attention from the gaming community within minutes of being posted, with fans expressing their excitement about the upcoming title.

Rockstar Games has confirmed Tuesday, December 5, 2023, as the release date for the first official GTA 6 trailer. The studio has also announced its release time as 9 am ET. So, the GTA 6 trailer will come out at these times in different time zones:

  • 6:00 am PT

  • 3:00 pm CET
  • 7:30 pm IST

Along with the trailer's release date and time, the post hints at the next Grand Theft Auto's possible setting. The purple and orange hues, as well as the palm trees, are often associated with Vice City, Rockstar's iteration of Miami, which debuted in its 2002 release, Grand Theft Auto Vice City.


This fictional location hasn't appeared in the series since 2006's Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories. However, it now looks like the iconic setting might be returning in what is one of the most anticipated video games of all time.

Interestingly, several insiders and the GTA 6 leaks from 2022 already suggest the title being set in Vice City. Official confirmation should arrive next week.

Rockstar's trailer announcement tweet already has around 300 thousand likes as of this writing. It also has thousands of comments from fans expressing their elation about the sequel's first official footage debuting soon.
