The new Grand Theft Auto 6 YouTube trailer has set a record for 102 million views in 24 hours.
It has exceeded GTA 5, that amassed 99 million views over 12 years.
The much-anticipated game returns to the Miami-inspired location of Vice City, including the first HD female protagonist, Lucia, alongside Jason, the male lead character.
A spokesperson stated how GTA 6 could be one of the biggest video games of all time.
“GTA 6 has been one of most anticipated video games since developers announced it back in February 2022.
“This sparked global headlines, as desperate fans sought out any information about the new game.
“Currently, GTA remains the second best-selling video game of all time, falling behind Minecraft.
“However, the reception of the GTA 6 trailer alone has been astonishing. Therefore, it could well give Minecraft a run for its money.
“The trailer opens with one of the game’s dual protagonists, Lucia, in a prison uniform at a parole interview. It ends with her and a partner holding up a store.
“In between we see TikTok-esque footage of mostly illegal Floridian antics involving fast cars, alligators, roof top parties and more- painting a picture of the city’s hard-partying sleaze.
“Last seen in 2006, players will nostalgically return to Rockstar’s fictional Miami setting, giving a sense of lawlessness and utter thrill- everything GTA fans crave.”
