The long wait of Grand Theft Auto fans is over, with the next installment in the mega-hit franchise finally getting a good taste of GTA VI with the release of the new upcoming trailer.
The Rockstar Games has released their 90-second teaser, which has received more than 159 million views in less than 3 weeks. The trailer has created speculation about when the gaming studio will release its cult classic. People have been playing Grand Theft Auto V for over a decade now.

Setting up the Narrative:
The game appears to feature a female protagonist for the first time. Lucia, the woman in the orange ”inmate” shirt, is seen gazing into a prison yard in one scene. In another scene, she bursts into a store wearing a bandanna mask and carrying a gun.

The Grand Theft Auto video games let players do many things, not just follow the main story. The games are set in fictional cities modeled after New York and Southern California.
Players can drive around listening to music or cause chaos by attacking police. But the games also have a central narrative involving crimes like robberies and kidnappings.
Grand Theft Auto V has sold about 190 million copies on the computer after it was released in 2013.
