A first trailer for the popular game is set to drop next month

Excitement is continuing to mount ahead of the first glimpse of the new Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer.

Rockstar confirmed last month they were finally ready to show off some footage from the upcoming title, which has been a decade in the making.

GTA V has sold over 190 million units over the years, making it one of the best-selling games of all time.

And with the date for a trailer nearing, GB News now takes a look at all the latest news and gossip surrounding the game.

Pre-order date

GTA 6 news: Rockstar Games are apparently messaging staff as a first trailer for the game nears


A leaked email has sparked speculation that GTA 6 could be available to pre-order next month.

An image circulating on X featuring an Argos Support agents hints December 12 is a date for fans to keep in mind.

HT tech say the Argos agent stated: “I have been informed the software Grand Theft Auto VI for the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 will be available to pre-order on December 12, 2023, confirmed to us by the distributors."

Rockstar Universe received a different message from Argos Support, however.

They claimed it would be available for 'pre-booking' once the official release date is disclosed.

Furthermore, the authenticity os the screenshot remains unverified. Rumours, after all, are bound to arise.

Rockstar sending messages

Rockstar Games are reportedly sending messages to their staff as the first GTA 6 trailer creeps closer.

Insider Gaming say a QA Team member from Capcom USA called Nima has received an internal message from the company's PR team in New York City.

The mail's subject is: "Unveiling the Next Chapter."

No other information was shared, however.

Rockstar messaging staff would be understandable, with the developers keen to keep every detail under wraps until they think it's the right time to release it to the public.

'Woke' worry from fans

Some GTA 6 fans are worried about the game being 'woke' due to the modern world.

Users on X have been expressing their concerns, with one saying: "Saw someone ask what they hope to not see in gta 6 and the top reply was woke nonsense."

A second said: "GTA is extremely based, i'm worried to see what the woke do to GTA 6."

"GTA 6 will be woke!" said a third user.

And a fourth stated: "Gta 6 will be watered down version of rdr2 gore. Rockstar changed staff.. I’m concerned if they go the woke route."

So when is the trailer dropping?

Rockstar confirmed earlier this month that a trailer would drop in December, saying: "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.

"In 1998, Rockstar Games was founded on the idea that video games could come to be as essential to culture as any other form of entertainment, and we hope that we have created games you love in our efforts to be part of that evolution.

"We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto.

Others think it could even come on Christmas Day to give fans festive cheer.
