Right now, GTA 6 fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the official Trailer 2 for Rockstar Games’ next Grand Theft Auto – here’s when it’s most likely to drop!

The first-ever trailer for GTA 6 went live on December 4, 2023, almost a day earlier than anticipated. This was due to a leaker releasing the trailer early in low quality, and Rockstar rushing to push out the real footage to combat the leak.

Now fans are desperately waiting for more news on the upcoming game, and Trailer 2 is likely in the works already.

Through some careful analysis of past trailer releases, we’ve come up with a few possibilities as to when our second look at GTA 6 may arrive!

Trailer 2 Possible Release Dates

Here are the most likely dates for GTA 6 Trailer 2’s release, and why that date in particular is one to watch:

Late May 2024

GTA 5’s Trailer 2 went live on November 14, 2012, a total of 307 days before the game’s official release on September 17, 2013.

While we don’t have an announced release date for the next Grand Theft Auto as of yet, Take-Two has hinted that GTA 6 should release in Q1 2025.

GTA 6 Main Characters

If we take March 31, 2025, the final date of Q1, as GTA 6’s release date, then we can expect Trailer 2 to arrive on May 28, 2024.

Of course, it could well be earlier than that if the game’s official release date is sooner than expected.

Mid-October 2024

There is also evidence that suggests that October 2024 might be the month to watch.

After all, GTA 5 was delayed from its original ‘Spring 2013’ release window, which might have made the time between Trailer 2’s release and the eventual September 17, 2013 release date longer than Rockstar had initially anticipated.

GTA 6 Lucia Main Character

There were roughly 166 days between GTA 5’s Trailer 2 release and Spring 2013, which could be the intended gap for GTA 6.

Therefore, using March 31, 2025, once again as a placeholder release date the GTA 6 Trailer 2 could actually release in mid-October 2024.

December 17, 2024

Another GTA 6 Trailer 2 release date that has us relatively confident is December 17, 2024.

This is based on the gap between GTA 5’s Trailer 1 and 2, which were released on November 2, 2011, and November 14, 2012 respectively.

GTA 6 Store Robbery Lucia and a Male

Given that there were 378 days between the two trailers, an identical release schedule would see GTA 6’s second trailer releasing on December 17.

However, Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar’s most recent major release, had a gap of just 343 days between trailers, which could mean November is the month to watch. Either way, late 2024 is a solid bet.

Of course, all the speculation in the world may not allow us to pinpoint Rockstar Games’ plans for the second Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer! We’ll update you as soon as any official information is revealed.
