The long-awaited Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI) has finally graced fans with a sneak peek, and the excitement is palpable. However, the thrill comes with a caveat, as Rockstar Games announces that the game will be unplayable for millions upon launch.

Rockstar Games, responding to a leak, decided to treat fans to the highly-anticipated trailer a day early, setting the internet ablaze with speculation and anticipation. The official countdown has commenced, with a confirmed release slated for 2025.

Sam Houser, the Founder of Rockstar Games, expressed the studio’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of immersive, story-driven open-world experiences. In a press release, Houser stated, “Grand Theft Auto VI continues our efforts to push the limits of what’s possible in highly immersive, story-driven open-world experiences. We’re thrilled to be able to share this new vision with players everywhere.”

Amid the jubilation, the release revealed a critical detail that might dampen the spirits of eager gamers. GTA VI will make its debut exclusively on certain consoles, namely PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. This means households without these specific devices will be left out of the initial launch excitement.

The announcement, coupled with the absence of any mention of a PC release, has triggered a backlash among fans. The revelation that GTA VI will be a next-gen console exclusive has drawn criticism, with some expressing disappointment at the exclusion of Xbox One and PS4. Furthermore, the uncertainty about a PC release has fueled frustration and concern.

While the news has sparked a passionate response, it remains to be seen whether Rockstar Games will address the platform limitations and expand the game’s availability in the future.
