Last month, GTA 6 made headlines following months of silence from Rockstar. After a hacker managed to obtain several clips of gameplay, footage from Rockstar’s upcoming game could be found throughout the internet. However, Rockstar took swift action, collaborating with the authorities to investigate the cyber attack.
Since then, the developer has not said much, and fans have become more curious about the franchise’s future. Grand Theft Auto’s 25th anniversary is rapidly approaching, and fans speculate that Rockstar could reveal the first official GTA 6 trailer on October 21, 2022.

The franchise has gradually become a massive part of pop culture. GTA 5 shook the entire industry in 2013, and the game is still fondly remembered. GTA Online also came out 9 years ago, and it continues to be extremely popular today.
Furthermore, Rockstar has already revealed an upcoming game on an anniversary date. The first trailer for GTA: The Trilogy- The Definitive Edition was released on the 20th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto 3.
Fans believe that the developer could repeat this pattern for GTA 6. Going by Rockstar’s history, this would not be too surprising.

Additionally, Sony also seems to be involved in some form of teasing. Not too long ago, the company posted a Tiktok video reminiscing about iconic PS2 intros. This included the beloved GTA: San Andreas intro, but a fan commented, “GTA Vice City Intro, please.” Sony then replied,
“20th anniversary is coming up too”

This could mean that Sony is now teasing something related to the Grand Theft Auto franchise. PlayStation has also had marketing rights with previous titles like Grand Theft Auto 5, so it would not be too far-fetched to believe that Sony is aware of Rockstar’s plans.
Grand Theft Auto Vice City’s anniversary is rapidly approaching, and the game turns 20 on October 29, 2022. The recent leak also revealed that Grand Theft Auto 6 is returning to Vice City, which could prove to be a reasonable reveal date.
However, taking this information with a grain of salt would be wise. While the evidence seems solid, nothing is set in stone yet.
GTA 6 is reportedly aiming for photorealistic graphics. Rockstar Games has been known to push the boundaries of visuals and gameplay mechanics, and the latest entry in the GTA franchise seems to be no different.
Fans could be in for a treat if a reveal trailer is coming soon. Grand Theft Auto 6 is shaping up to be the most hyped-up release in the last decade, but it remains to be seen if Rockstar will utilize GTA’s upcoming anniversary to showcase GTA 6 officially.
