The recent tweet announcing the trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 is now the most-liked gaming-related post in Twitter history. Grand Theft Auto is one of the biggest video game franchises of all time, and the internet has been awash in rumor and speculation about its next installment ever since Rockstar confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 6 was in development last February.

They won’t have to wait too much longer either, as Rockstar Games announced on social media that the official Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer will be released on Tuesday, December 5 – confirming rumors that the latest GTA game would be shown off sometime close to the upcoming The Game Awards 2023 livestream a few days later. The announcement post itself was simple and cryptic, with its tropical imagery supporting the claims that GTA 6 will indeed return to Vice City as many fans are hoping.

Since the highly shared Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer announcement post went live late last week, countless players have posted humorous memes detailing their reactions to both the news of the trailer and their overall excitement for the game itself. Additionally, other developers like 343 Industries and Mediatonic have posted similar announcements for upcoming events in Halo Infinite and Fall Guy, which have drawn attention for seemingly copying the visual style of the GTA 6 image.

In the meantime, fans are overwhelmingly excited for this week’s Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer, as evidenced by Rockstar’s announcement post breaking the record for most likes mere days after going live. If this is the reaction a post simply announcing the trailer’s release date gets, one can only imagine the blockbuster response the Grand Theft Auto 6 will get after it hits the internet on Tuesday, December 5 – a date that might even overshadow this week’s The Game Awards 2023 event a couple of days later.
