GTA 6 Trailer Gets Over 90 Million Views in 24 Hours

After 24 hours on YouTube, the trailer for the highly-anticipated new Grand Theft Auto title achieved over 90 million views.

This means the video has surpassed the record previously set by YouTuber MrBeast.

GTA 6 trailer breaking world records

Rockstar released the GTA 6 trailer ahead of schedule due to a leak on X. The publisher acted quickly, removing the leaked footage and uploading the video to its YouTube channel.

In just 24 hours, the trailer exploded and surpassed 90 million views. This made it the most viewed non-music video during its first day on the platform.

The record was previously held by MrBeast’s video titled Every Country On Earth Fights For $250,000! The popular philanthropist and YouTube sensation achieved 59.4 million in the first 24 hours.

The GTA 6 trailer also came close to beating the record for most views in the first 24 hours set by the music video for Butter by South Korean band BTS which had about 108 million views.

At the time of writing, the trailer has over 100 million views. So, it has already reached the view count of the GTA 5 trailer which has been on YouTube for 12 years.

Obviously, the trailer is also No. 1 on Trending for gaming on the platform.

This all shows just how much hype surrounds the new Grand Theft Auto title, set to arrive in 2025. Fans have been rewatching and dissecting the trailer, looking for any piece of information they can find.

The current installment, GTA 5, is the world’s second most popular game of all time (behind Minecraft), with over 190 million copies sold.

Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive expects GTA 6 to make $8 billion in revenue for fiscal year 2025.

What’s new in GTA 6?

The trailer for GTA 6 didn’t disappoint. It showed a new level of rendering quality and the first female lead character in the franchise.

It also looks like the game will be a part love story, as Lucia and the other unnamed male lead character (reportedly Jason) appear to have a relationship that’s reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde.

Throughout the video, fans can see scenes of criminal activities we’ve got used to in the franchise such as armed robberies and police chases.

They’ve also been promised a world that’s bigger and more detailed than ever before. The trailer shows players will be returning to Vice City in the fictional state of Leonida.

However, unlike GTA: Vice City, the new game will be set in modern day. It will also feature a lot of social media and satire on American society.

Another thing many fans have pointed out is updated NPC behavior. A scene in the trailer shows beachgoers applying sunscreen, taking photos, and jogging with their dogs.

Additionally, players will get to experience more wildlife, with alligators, flamingos, ducks, and other animals shown in the video.

What platforms will GTA 6 be on?

In a separate press release, Rockstar announced that GTA 6 will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Therefore, it looks like this will be a similar situation to the Red Dead Redemption 2 release, with the PC version coming out later.

However, with the game being over a year away, the publisher may decide that a simultaneous PC release is a good idea. Or at least the gap between console and PC releases won’t be as wide as it often is.
