GTA 6’s trailer looks stunning, but an ex-Rockstar dev has assured fans the final product will look like that too.
In today’s era, it can be challenging to trust what you see, especially in the gaming industry, where controversies surrounding misleading trailers have surfaced, notably with games like the first Watchdogs and Killzone 2. However, a recent statement from a former Rockstar developer suggests that Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) will not follow this trend, assuring fans that the game will live up to the stunning visuals presented in its trailer.
Mike York, an ex-animator for Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2, shared his reaction to the GTA 6 trailer on Wednesday, providing a unique perspective gained from almost six years of work at Rockstar New England. In his video, York meticulously dissects the trailer, highlighting intricate details that regular fans might overlook due to lacking a developer’s discerning eye.
York asserts that what viewers witness in the trailer will be a faithful representation of the game when GTA 6 releases in 2025. He dispels the notion that the trailer relies on cinematics, a common strategy used by developers to enhance visual appeal without accurately representing gameplay, emphasizing that the open-world experience will genuinely resemble the showcased graphics.
Expressing admiration for the advancement in in-game graphics, York points to specific examples, such as an NPC in a bikini featured prominently in the trailer. He notes a significant improvement in detail compared to NPCs in Rockstar’s previous titles, showcasing enhanced technology. The identity of the bikini-clad character, possibly the main character Lucia in disguise, has sparked debate within the GTA community.
If York’s assertions hold true and GTA 6 indeed matches the visual quality of its initial trailer, it could explain the decision to make the game exclusive to next-gen consoles. Rockstar confirmed shortly after the trailer’s release that GTA 6 would not be available on PS4 and Xbox One, with no immediate plans for a PC launch. Speculation suggests a potential delayed PC release, possibly six months later, enticing fans to purchase the game for both console and PC, making 2026 the likely release year for PC gamers who opt to wait rather than invest in a next-gen console.
