GTA fans think they may have figured out the release date for Grand Theft Auto VI after seemingly 'spotting it' in the trailer.

All gamers are well aware at this point how long we have been waiting for Grand Theft Auto VI.

Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto V in September 2013 to rave reviews - with the tenth anniversary of the game coming earlier this year.

And since then, people have been hungry for more GTA.

Loading…

Fan's wishes were answered when it was announced that a trailer for GTA VI would be coming out on December.

However, after it was leaked online, Rockstar released the trailer a day earlier than expected on December 4.

And, judging by the fact the trailer has over 50 million views on YouTube shows how excited fans are for this game.

The trailer itself showcased the ever-expected Vice City for the very first time - with a modern twist compared to 2002's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

While the fictionalized depiction of Miami certainly took centre stage, fans also got to see a lot of the series' first female protagonist, Lucia.

Concluding the trailer, Rockstar confirmed that GTA VI would release in 2025, which certainly disappointed a lot of fans who'd hoped for a 2024 release date.

Nonetheless, fans think they've figured out what month GTA VI may come to onto the market in 2025.

It comes in the form of a hidden message on a plane that is present in the trailer for literally a split second.

The message reads: 'Why Sixty Nine When You Can Nine 1 Nine?' - which left many wondering whether a September 19, 2025 release date could be on the cards.

Another said: "9/19/25 CONFIRMED," while someone else said: "919? Maybe September 19th, 2025??"

The September date can be added to another date that has been speculated recently thanks to a in-game t-shirt found in GTA V.

The diamond-like design has many numbers on it, though two sequences in particular have become relevant in recent weeks.

'12523' was the first of interest, implying 5 December, 2023, the originally intended release date for the trailer.

And some social media users reckon the shirt could be hiding a GTA VI release date as well.

X user @LegacyKillaHD took to the social media site and wrote: "Besides @RockstarGames teasing at the GTA 6 reveal date & time with the secret number sequence of '1252309' on this GTA Online shirt a few months ago, there's also more POTENTIAL interesting numbers here. 040125 = April 1st 2025.

"Could that be the intended GTA 6 release date?!"

Whatever the eventual release date is, we'll surely find out in the coming months.
