Rockstar Games hasn’t given us any indication of when the second trailer for GTA 6 will drop, and fan theories are making less and less sense each day.

Whenever you leave a gaming community in the dark for long enough, things start to get a bit crazy. With no new information to discuss or create content about, gamers start to devolve into insanity.

In the case of GTA 6, it’s actually only been a couple of months since Trailer 1 broke the internet. But with a game this hype-generating, it’s no surprise to see fans going off the rails already.

Fans Think They’ve Discovered Trailer 2’s Release Date

A new popular post over on the GTA 6 subreddit predicts the release date for Trailer 2, and it’s basing that assumption on… the number of birds that appear in the game’s first trailer.

In the opening shot of Vice City in GTA 6 Trailer 1, we can see six birds in the sky. Then, seconds later, we see ten birds flying above a barbed wire fence.

Clearly, user Reckoning_2439 has decided, this means that Trailer 2 will be coming in June or October, the sixth and tenth months of the year, respectively. Or perhaps the code is six-ten, referring to October 6, or June 10?

It’s worth noting that these aren’t the only birds to appear in the Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer. As such, we’re almost certain they have nothing to do with the potential release date of a second reveal.

Despite the theory becoming the third most upvoted post of the week over on the GTA 6 subreddit, which recently surpassed 1 million users, many fans are simply poking a bit of fun at the theory.

“Bro how do you not see it? What else could the birds mean?” Reddit user Osstj7737 jokes. “You think rockstar just picked a random number? You think they’re stupid?”

It’s clear that the GTA 6 community is in dire need of more official information – and fast.

But when will we actually hear more from developer Rockstar Games?

When Do We Think The Trailer Will Arrive?

In the case of GTA 5, Rockstar released the game’s reveal trailer in November 2011, and followed up with Trailer 2 an entire year later, in November 2012.

If the gap between trailers were identical, we’d be seeing GTA 6 Trailer 2 dropping on December 17, 2024 – a brutal wait for fans of the franchise to endure!

Red Dead Redemption 2, the latest game by the developer, had a similar gap of 343 days between its first and second trailers.

Therefore, we do expect GTA 6’s second trailer to arrive in November-December 2024, but we’d be very happy for it to arrive earlier!

Ultimately though, there’s no way to tell when our next look at the upcoming game will drop. For now, we’ll just have to wait for Rockstar Games to announce the next trailer when it’s good and ready.

And unfortunately, some analysts have suggested that GTA 6 may have been secretly delayed in the meantime.
