With the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 dropping on December 4, fans have finally received official details on the game after a decade of waiting. Although there was some controversy surrounding the trailer’s early leak, which resulted in an unexpected official release, the trailer is generally praised as an exciting first look.
Grand Theft Auto 6’s tiny first trailer, which merely gave a cursory introduction to the protagonist Lucia, didn’t reveal any important plot points or characters, as was to be expected. One of the most important details about Rockstar’s intentions for GTA 6 is the purposeful emphasis on Lucia throughout this historic unveiling. The game’s distinct approach is shown by the early focus on Lucia, which marks a notable divergence from the franchise’s customary practices.
Grand Theft Auto 6 has long been the subject of rumors of a dual protagonist system with a male and female character. These rumors gained traction in the early months of 2022 when Rockstar discovered considerable leaks about the game. As seen by the most recent Grand Theft Auto 6 reveal video, which established the game’s Vice City location and featured a strong female lead, these leaks have proven to be reliable.
Among the most important details revealed in the Grand Theft Auto 6 teaser include Vice City serving as the game’s hub, the presence of both male and female protagonists, a 2025 release window, and initial platform exclusivity for the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.
Grand Theft Auto 6’s innovative addition of a female protagonist, Lucia, is a major shift from the series’ previous emphasis on only male playable characters. Lucia’s function is a significant change, and Rockstar purposefully draws attention to it in the early trailers for Grand Theft Auto 6 that are available to gamers.
The trailer puts Lucia front and center, showing her time spent in prison before she joins the male lead of Grand Theft Auto 6 in her life of crime. This male protagonist is called Jason, according to the previously stated leaks. The trailer seems to substantiate this information and implies that Lucia and Jason are romantically involved.
There are further story trailers for Grand Theft Auto 6 are expected to be released in the upcoming years and that Jason will probably eventually get a promotional film of his own that delves deeper into his motivations and character.
