The first official trailer of the highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI has been released after a leak of it went viral on social media.

Publishers Rockstar released the teaser on YouTube at around midnight a day earlier than expected where it has already racked up nearly 50m views in nine hours.

Rockstar Games posted on X, formerly Twitter: “Our trailer has leaked so please watch the real thing on YouTube.”

Fans have waited a decade for the announcement after the success of GTA V.

The game became the second-best-selling video game of all time – behind Minecraft – after it was released in 2013 to critical acclaim.

GTA 6 is set in Vice City – just like the 2002 game – which is inspired by Miami in the US.

The series has been developed by Rockstar North which was founded in Dundee and is currently headquartered in Edinburgh.

The trailer for the sixth game features the Miami-inspired Vice City – the same setting as the famous 2002 game – and features fast cars, guns and even an alligator.

It also confirms GTA’s first female protagonist, Lucia, who is accompanied by a yet unknown male partner.

Despite the trailer fans will still have to wait another year with publishers only saying at the end of the clip “coming 2025”.

The game is expected to come to PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
