Grand Theft Auto fans will be counting down the days until Tuesday, December 5.

Why is that? Because it's the day that Rockstar Games releases the first official trailer for GTA 6, of course.

Rockstar Games have so far given very little away about what people can expect from the highly anticipated sixth addition to the Grand Theft Auto gaming franchise, meaning fans have been trying to work things out for themselves.

One thing they're convinced they now know is where the location of GTA 6 will be set.

It comes after the studio confirmed yesterday (December 1) that the GTA 6 trailer will be released this coming Tuesday.

With the announcement was a teaser photo, and gamers were quick to take note of the palm trees in the picture - and they're identical to the ones used the in the imagery from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

This appears to confirm the rumors that Vice City would be making a comeback after over 20 years.

Elsewhere on the promo shot were three birds, which look to be seagulls.

But it's not the birds as such that people are bothered about, but the number of them.

Sharing a close up shot of the birds, one GTA 6 fan penned on X: "3 playable characters in GTA 6 confirmed?"

Sharing their own theory, someone replied: "My theory is that theres gonna be only 2 playable characters in free roam and a third character only playable in a few missions later on the game."

Meanwhile, someone on Reddit echoed similar sentiments.

"I was wondering if the three birds were significant, like maybe we’re getting three characters again," they wrote.

On the other hand, some have suggested that the third birds symbolize Rockstar Games actually saying goodbye to former protagonists.

A gamer said on X: "I like to think that the 3 birds flying away in the GTA 6 teaser image as a metaphor of the 3 protagonists in GTA 5 finally being put to rest after a decade."

"I think it symbolizes Trevor Michael and Franklin the 3 protags in V and it symbolizes the goodbye to the 3 protags in VI," echoed someone else.

Away from speculation about the characters, others questioned if the birds have anything to do with the track that will feature on the trailer.

"Three Little Birds By Bob Marley to be in the trailer?" one fan suggested.

"Three Little Birds by Bob Marley for the trailer song?" questioned another.

Hopefully we'll know the answers come Tuesday...
