Last week, Rockstar Games broke the internet by announcing the world's first official look at Grand Theft Auto 6. The plan was for Rockstar to drop the first trailer for GTA 6 on Tuesday, December 5, at 9 am ET.

Still, leakers weren't waiting around, and the trailer dropped online late Monday night, forcing Rockstar to move their schedule up and release the trailer on their official YouTube channel earlier than anticipated.

The trailer, clocking in at just a minute and a half, offers a brief glimpse into the highly anticipated GTA 6. Set to Tom Petty's "Love is a Long Road," it introduces us to a revamped Vice City, confirming the presence of two main protagonists, Lucia and Jason.

Between shots of rooftop bars, packed beaches, and rampant lawlessness, the trailer also takes jabs at our social media-obsessed society, dispelling fears that Rockstar may have lost its satirical edge in the decade since GTA V.

And while this isn't our first trip to Vice City, the world has changed. When Tommy Vercetti walked these streets, it was the never-ending party of the '80s —by big collars, Cuban exiles, and a booming drug trade—today's Vice City, while still good for a good time, looks every bit the part of Trumpian America.

There isn't much given away story-wise in this first trailer; however, the sections with Jason and Lucia point towards a Bonnie and Clyde-style bond between the two protagonists.

We are sure there will be much more to see throughout 2024, as the trailer ended with a vague release window of 2025. Let's hope rumors of a GTA IV remaster turn out to be accurate, so we all have something to fill the over-year-long wait before GTA 6 arrives.
