Grand Theft Auto VI is a 2025 video game. It is going to be published by Rockstar Games and developed by Rockstar Studios. It will be the eighth main game in the Grand Theft Auto series.[1]

In July 2022, it was reported that the main characters of Grand Theft Auto VI would be both a man and a woman named Lucia, with their characters being influenced by criminal duo Bonnie and Clyde. It was also revealed that the game will take place in Vice City.[2]

On September 18, 2022, a leak was released and was later confirmed to be real by Rockstar.[3] In the leak, there were 90 videos posted which showed footage of the game in a work-in-progress state.[4] A 17-year-old from Oxfordshire who is believed to have posted the leak under the username "teapotuberhacker" was arrested on 22 September.[5] A judge would sentence him to an indefinite hospital order since he said that he would still do cybercrime if he was released.[6]

On December 4, 2023, Rockstar released an official trailer for the game and revealed that the release date was expected to be in 2025.[7]
