Mark your calendar, Grand Theft Auto VI is trailer is on its way

Ten years in the making, the trailer for GTA VI is set to drop within the month, which has the X sphere in chaos

Rockstar Games have announced via X (formerly Twitter) that the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto instalment will be released in early December.

This announcement comes just over a decade after the release of the widely lauded Grand Theft Auto V, which has become the second-best-selling video game of all-time (behind Mojang’s Minecraft) since first hitting shelves in 2013. 

Some fans speculate that the trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto will release on December 10, marking Rockstar Games’ 25th anniversary, while others expect it to premiere at the 10th annual Game Awards on December 7. 

Almost as anticipated as the game itself is its soundtrack – particularly the tracks licensed for its parodical radio stations, a memorable component of previous Grand Theft Auto editions.

The stations of V spanned the best of contemporary and enduring pop – from Kendrick Lamar, Robyn, and M.I.A. back to Pet Shop Boys, NWA, and Yes – contributing to their winning “Best Soundtrack” at the 2013 Spike VGX Awards. 

The GTA series has long been synonymous with its outstanding music, and the latest narrative-driven expansion, GTA Online: The Contract, elevates this reputation to new heights. Traditionally recognized for its stellar curation of classic tracks featured on the games’ iconic radio stations, Rockstar Games has now stepped into the realm of actively releasing new music.

While we await official details of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto instalment – including its music – check out the beauty that is  GTA Online: The Contract, that features new and unreleased music from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Anderson Paak.
