“Grand Theft Auto 6 Maintains Rockstar Tradition, But Is It Time for a Change?”

The recent Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) trailer has generated enormous excitement among fans, showcasing impressive attention to detail and a large-scale setting, particularly in Vice City. However, the trailer has left some fans disappointed due to the lack of concrete details and the exclusion of a PC release at launch, continuing a longstanding tradition by Rockstar Games.

The trailer introduces GTA 6’s first major female protagonist, Lucia, which has generated excitement and positive reception among fans. Nevertheless, the disappointment stems from the confirmation that GTA 6 will exclusively launch for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, with no initial release for PC. This decision has frustrated many fans, especially considering the significant player base on PC platforms.
