Rockstar Games has confirmed the release date and time for the reveal trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto game will be coming out, with all signs pointing to it being GTA 6.

The hype around the next installment of the Grand Theft Auto series has never been bigger. Rockstar previously confirmed that the first trailer for the next entry will be coming sometime in December, with many fans were assuming that it would happen during The Game Awards. However, Rockstar has come out with a new post on X (formerly Twitter) that debunks this assumption.

The post reveals the exact date and time for the release of the likely GTA 6 trailer. The post also has a picture attached that gives fans an idea of where the game might take place, and it could be a familiar locale from a previous GTA game.

Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer date and time confirmed

The first trailer for the next GTA game will be released on Tuesday, December 5 at 9 a.m. ET.

This date is exactly two days before the date of The Game Awards, which many fans thought would host this trailer. While this doesn’t mean that there won’t be more information given to fans during the event, some fans are appreciative of getting the trailer sooner than later. GTA 6 is likely going to be the biggest video game release in history, so a case can be made that the game’s reveal trailer is too big for a show like The Game Awards.

The post surpassed 100,000 likes on X in its first 10 minutes, speaking to just how many people are looking forward to seeing the first official look at the next installment of this gigantic gaming franchise. Though details are still scarce on what the game will have to offer fans, there’s still overwhelming excitement surrounding the game.

Will GTA 6 actually be GTA: Vice City 2?

The post announcing the date and time of the GTA 6’s reveal trailer comes attached with a picture hinting that the next GTA game might be set in Vice City.

Previous leaks and reports had stated that the setting of GTA 6 would be Vice City, the titular Miami-based location of the series’ fourth mainline entry. Though a massive leak that contained an early build of the game suggested this would be the case, it hasn’t been confirmed.

The post announcing the date and time of the trailer includes a picture that shows several palm trees that were a common sight in Vice City. This, in addition to the beach-like background and the many rumors hinting at the setting being Vice City, has many fans believing there might be some merit to these speculations.
