The Grand Theft Auto 6 Trailer Released Early, Release Date Finally Revealed!

Grand Theft Auto 6

A subtler, yet delightful touch in the trailer is the choice of the song “Love is a Long Road,” extracted from Tom Petty’s 1989 album, Full Moon Fever. This marks the legendary Tom Petty’s first solo release, adding an iconic musical layer to the anticipation. Shoutout to PC Gamer’s global editor-in-chief, Evan Lahti, for pointing out Petty’s Florida roots, painting an intriguing regional connection.

Accompanying the cinematic spectacle is a revealed release target—Grand Theft Auto 6 is slated to grace our gaming realms in 2025. The tantalizing question lingers: will the PC version debut in tandem with its console counterparts, or are we destined for a waiting game? Rockstar’s historical pattern leans towards console premieres preceding PC releases—think GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas, GTA 4, 5, LA Noire, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

In a recent earnings call, Take-Two’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, dropped hints about the escalating significance of the PC platform in their strategy. Showering praise on the vibrant GTA modding scene, Zelnick proclaimed, “We want to be where the consumer is.” This implies a newfound emphasis on PC gaming for Rockstar, a shift from the landscape of just half a decade ago.

However, the GTA 6 announcement, intriguingly, makes no explicit mention of a PC version. The statement simply asserts, “Grand Theft Auto 6 is coming to PlayStation 5 computer entertainment systems and Xbox Series X-S games and entertainment systems in 2025.” While this omission doesn’t definitively rule out a simultaneous PC release, historical precedents cast a shadow of doubt. The PC gaming community remains vigilant, awaiting any updates that may shed light on this enigma. Stay tuned for more information as we navigate the suspenseful journey toward the release of Grand Theft Auto 6.
