Although it was not released in accordance with the most beautiful scenario that Rockstar created when it was suddenly leaked before the premiere, the first trailer of GTA 6 is still considered an earthquake in the world of gaming. With its strong appeal, with every passing hour, the trailer sets new records. The reveal of very unique things such as the return of Vice City, the new female protagonist since the series switched to 3D format, all made the first official launch of the movie a success. This GTA 6.
In just half a day, GTA 6 Trailer 1 rose to the top of the trend on YouTube, even reaching more than 60 million views. This trailer even quickly rose to become the most viewed video on Rockstar’s YouTube channel with more than 125 million views at the moment, far surpassing names like Grand Theft Auto 5 (97 million) or Red Dead Redemption 2 (37 million). Remember before that, GTA 5’s trailer has dominated this position for the past 12 years. The attraction of GTA 6 is so great that it even broke the Guinness record, when it became the trailer with the most views within 24 hours (not including music).
A short trailer but with undeniable appeal. However, fans may still have to wait a long time to enjoy this blockbuster. Without revealing an official launch date, GTA 6 was only revealed to appear one day in 2025 and will not be released on PC at that time. But perhaps GTA 6 will continue to break the record that its predecessor, GTA 5, achieved. With more than 190 million copies sold (figures as of September 30), GTA 5 has become the most successful game in Rockstar’s history, far surpassing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – the game released Two years later and also very successful but with sales of only 50 million copies.
The fact that GTA 6’s launch plan fell apart due to previous leaks has caused Rockstar to continuously complain in recent days. However, with the records that the GTA 6 trailer has created, even being recorded in Guinness, this publisher has absolutely every reason to be satisfied.
