The highly anticipated GTA 6 trailer will land sometime next month

GTA 6 fans, the end of the decade-long wait is neigh.

Gamers across the globe have been eagerly awaiting information on the sixth edition of Grand Theft Auto, over ten years on from GTA 5 dropping.

There's been a lot of speculation about the upcoming game in recent months, but its release date is still yet to be confirmed by Rockstar Games.

However, finally feeding fans with a tiny spec of optimism, the game developer confirmed today (8 November) that the trailer for GTA 6 will be released next month.

In a statement released on X, formerly Twitter, Rockstar's president Sam Houser said: "Next month marks the 25th anniversary of Rockstar Games. Thanks to the incredible support of our players worldwide, we have had the opportunity to create games we are truly passionate about.

"Without you, none of this would be possible, and we are so grateful to all of you for sharing this journey with us."

Houser continued: "We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto. We look forward to many more years of sharing these experiences with all of you."

The return of Vice City

Back in 2002, GTA: Vice City was released and the editions that have followed have seen the game set in new locations such as the fictional US state of San Andreas and city of Los Santos and Liberty City, based in New York City.

Now, over two decades on, it's believed that GTA 6 will return to more modern Vice City.

GTA 6 could have its first female protagonist

It's been rumored that the game will have a female lead, as per a report by Bloomberg last year.

The publication said at the time that 'the woman is Latina and will be one of a pair of leading characters in a story influenced by the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde'.

More advanced NPCs

In a leak of GTA 6 gameplay, fans noticed that police AI was notably more advanced - sparking hopes that other NPCs will also get a well-needed revamp.

NPCs are known for their strange glitches, so much so that acting like one has become a trend on TikTok.

A larger map

In light of people calling for bigger and better maps, it's expected that Rockstar Games may address this with a new and improved map.

A tiny portion of a map was leaked earlier this year. From the leak, gamers predict that GTA 6's map may be as much as 1.5 times bigger than its previous.

Not only is the map expected to be larger, it's rumored that Rockstar will continuously update the game so that more missions and cities are available for players to explore, Eurogamer reports.
