It’s happening, folks! Rockstar has finally confirmed it will officially announce and reveal the debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 next month.
The news comes from a post on Rockstar Newswire, where Sam Houser, co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, begins by thanking fans for their patronage over the years and also celebrates the upcoming 25th anniversary of the studio.

“Thanks to the incredible support of our players worldwide, we have had the opportunity to create games we are truly passionate about – without you, none of this would be possible, and we are so grateful to all of you for sharing this journey with us,” said Houser in the post.
“In 1998, Rockstar Games was founded on the idea that video games could come to be as essential to culture as any other form of entertainment, and we hope that we have created games you love in our efforts to be part of that evolution.”
“We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto,” House concluded.
The post comes immediately after Bloomberg ran a news story about the potential reveal and trailer information for GTA 6, which may have prompted Rockstar to confirm the same before the due date.
As for when Rockstar will release the trailer next month, it is anyone’s guess. The most obvious answer would be to reveal the trailer during The Game Awards, which takes place on December 7, although Rockstar hasn’t confirmed their attendance at the awards show yet. But it could very well be the host Geoff Keighley’s “…and one more thing” moment, ending the show with a bang.
GTA 6 has been rumoured for a couple of years now, with fans craving a new instalment in the series after GTA 5’s release over a decade ago. We had a brief glimpse of the game after a hacker leaked development footage from the game, which was quickly pulled by Rockstar, with the hacker eventually being arrested by the British police.
