Let no one question the unwavering relevance of Rockstar Games’ crime-laden series after the recently released GTA 6 trailer hit 20 million views in just two hours – and it’s still climbing. Despite the announcement video being launched a day earlier than scheduled, reception towards the short clip has arguably remained on par with previous expectations, as some had predicted the teaser would eclipse 50-100 million views in 24 hours.

Of course, this isn’t exactly a surprise, considering the Grand Theft Auto IP’s reputation as one of the industry’s most-played and best-selling series in history. But with the GTA 6 release date window now officially confirmed, the excitement surrounding Rockstar’s latest series entry has hit an all-time high as the teaser’s view count continues its meteoric rise – a trend that will undoubtedly continue as more trailers get released in the lead up to its launch.

In addition, based on the announcement trailer‘s ever-increasing view count, GTA 6 is already shaping up to be one of Rockstar Games’s biggest creations, as it has already eclipsed that of Red Dead Redemption 2. However, it still has a long way to go until it surpasses the level that its predecessor’s trailer, GTA 5, was able to reach since the previous series entry’s announcement video accumulated a whopping 94 million views.

It remains to be seen whether the GTA 6 trailer will indeed outshine its counterparts, as it’s still in its early days. But if the reveal teaser’s continuously up-ticking view count is any indicator, then it may only be a matter of time until it becomes the most-viewed video game trailer in history.
