Social media was abuzz with excitement as the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 6 trailer dropped on Tuesday (December 5) morning. However, confusion arose among fans when the game's release date for PC was conspicuously absent during the launch.
- Rockstar Games unexpectedly released the trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 ahead of schedule in response to a leaked preview on social media, particularly on X (formerly Twitter).
- The trailer quickly went viral on YouTube, amassing over 11 million views within two hours of its official release on the Rockstar Games channel.
The GTA 6 trailer confirmed numerous leaks about the open-world game that had surfaced over the years since its development was announced.
Despite this, a Rockstar Games press release revealed that the game is slated for release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2025, with no news provided regarding a PC launch.
This omission disappointed many PC gaming fans.
