Posted to YouTube, the trailer for GTA 6 spans exactly 1 minute and 30 seconds and confirms a lot of things we were already expecting. The most prominent of all these is that GTA 6 will indeed be taking place in Vice City. This is huge news since the Miami-inspired City was last seen in 2002’s GTA Vice City.

The trailer begins by showing us Lucia, the long-expected female protagonist. She is in orange overalls and very obviously in prison. The majority of the trailer focuses on Vice City and the various things it has to offer.

This includes the water-locked islands, the amazing yet dangerous nightlife, the return of all the classic cars, and more. We also naturally the return of a lot of crime, crazy moments, robberies, fights, and even bayous. This confirms that GTA will keep its larger-than-life crime theme going.

However, the game is set in modern times, as a big portion of it includes footage captured through a fictional streaming platform. This could mean the game might get an inbuilt social media in the game for future online connectivity or new activities.

Towards the end, Lucia is joined by an unknown male lead (leaked name Jason) in the city of beaches and crime. As we expected, Lucia and her partner are in a Bonnie and Clyde situation. As such, the duo agrees to trust each other to survive before kicking in a store’s door, and the trailer ends.
