GTA 6 is arguably the most highly anticipated video game ever. With its previous edition coming back in 2013, fans have been eagerly waiting for the upcoming edition and Rockstar Games have announced that the game will be launched in 2025. The trailer of the game was recently released and it’s safe to say that the fans have loved it.
The trailer of GTA 6 was viewed over 90 million times in just its first 24 hours. By doing so, it overtook the previous record for the most viewed non-music video set by popular YouTuber Mr Beast. Moreover, it just fell short of becoming the most viewed video on the platform in the first 24 hours, a record which was set by BTS’ song Butter which had around 108 million in 24 hours.
GTA 6 trailer has viral real-life references
Interestingly, the trailer released by Rockstar Games has some clever real-life references. While those might have been missed by the majority of the people some eagle-eyed fans have caught those moments.
For example, a woman can be seen in the trailer with hammers in both hands. That seems to be a clear inspiration from a viral video clip that saw a woman trying to intimidate her neighbours.

A real-life video of a man pulling out an alligator from a swimming pool is also used in the trailer. Moreover, some people have pointed out that the appearance of a prisoner in the game appears to be based on a man known as Miami’s real-life Joker.
GTA 6 features Lucia as the main lead
The recently released trailer of GTA 6 starts with Lucia being in prison and replying “Bad luck, I guess” when asked about why she’s in prison. It is worth noting that for the first time in its franchise, Rockstar Games has introduced Lucia as the leading lady in Grand Theft Auto‘s sixth instalment.
The trailer follows the incredible and beautiful scenes in Vice City-inspired Miami with intensely real graphics, where Lucia is joined by an unnamed character who might play a notable role in the game alongside her. Rockstar Games hasn’t shared details about the other characters as of yet and it will be interesting to get to know further details about the highly anticipated game.
