We’re still waiting to hear more about GTA 6, but will the highly-anticipated title appear at any of our upcoming game showcases?

It’s been almost six months since the release of Grand Theft Auto 6 Trailer 1, and fans have been eagerly awaiting more information about the game.

That’s not to say Rockstar has left us in complete darkness. After all, we recently got new information about GTA 6’s Fall 2025 release date, and Take-Two Interactive even commented on the game’s price tag.

But could we see a new trailer arrive at the PlayStation State of Play, Xbox Games Showcase, or at Summer Game Fest, which all drop in the next two weeks?

The Likelihood of a New Trailer

No, we don’t think it’s likely that GTA 6 will appear at any of the upcoming showcases, as Rockstar Games is more likely to announce when Trailer 2 is set to go live in advance.

We saw an example of this when Trailer 1’s announcement broke the internet, and the hype drummed up from the post alone helped make GTA 6’s debut trailer break YouTube records on release.

Will GTA 6 Appear at PlayStation State of Play?

GTA 6 is unlikely to appear at PlayStation’s State of Play on May 30, 2024.

Although Rockstar Games did show off the GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced trailer during a PlayStation Showcase, we don’t think it’d be likely to hand off the GTA 6 reveal in the same way.

UPDATE: As expected, we didn’t see anything related to GTA at the PlayStation State of Play!

This is made all the more unlikely by the fact that Sony has only announced a 30+ minute broadcast this time around. The State of Play announcement also reveals that only 14 PS5 titles (including those on PS VR2) will be featured, which means each game will get around 2 minutes in the spotlight at most.

We imagine if Sony were granted the right to market GTA 6, it’d be making a bigger deal of it.

Will GTA 6 Appear at Summer Game Fest?

It is unlikely that we’ll see GTA 6 appear at Summer Game Fest on June 7, 2024.

Although it’s more probable than the game making an appearance at either Xbox or PlayStation’s showcases, we think Rockstar Games will drop its trailer independently this time around.

That said, another one of Take-Two Interactive’s studios, 2K, is confirmed to make an appearance at Summer Game Fest 2024, where it will show off the next interation of one of its ‘biggest and most beloved franchises.’

Could it be time for a new Borderlands, Mafia, or BioShock game reveal?

Will GTA 6 Appear at Xbox Games Showcase?

No, we don’t expect GTA 6 to appear at the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9, 2024.

Not only does Microsoft not usually get the marketing rights to Rockstar Games releases, but the Xbox showcase already has a priority in mind.

UPDATE: As expected, we didn’t see anything related to GTA at the Xbox Games Showcase!

After all, Xbox is taking this chance to make use of its Activision Blizzard acquisition, by showcasing a full Black Ops 6 Direct immediately after its showcase.

It’s unlikely that any reveals at the Xbox Games Showcase will overshadow the latest Call of Duty, though we don’t doubt Microsoft would jump at the chance to reveal more GTA 6 content.

Ultimately, we think that Rockstar Games knows the hype for Grand Theft Auto 6 is big enough to stand on its own legs.

For that reason, we do not expect a new GTA 6 trailer to arrive during the PlayStation State of Play, Xbox Games Showcase, or Summer Game Fest.

In fact, we think it’s far more likely that we’ll get GTA 6 Trailer 2 at the end of 2024!

But we can always dream…
