Rockstar Games officially released the first trailer for GTA 6 sooner than expected, leaving the internet in a frenzy.

“2025 – are you serious, bro? I’mma be, like, 50 years old! I might not even be alive! Oh, my god! They’re making us wait so long! Oh s**t! Oh, my god! 2025! 2025, chat?! 2025, are you serious?! We’re going to be old! 2025, y’all.” Sharing his thoughts on the game, IShowSpeed added: “I ain’t going to lie, this game looks insane, bro! All jokes aside, bro, this game looks insane, dog! This game looks dead a*s insane, bro. All jokes aside, bro.”

GTA 6 is one of the most anticipated games right now. After years of waiting, Rockstar Games finally dropped the first trailer for it.
This created a lot of buzz on the internet, attracting everyone interested in this series or video games in general. Among them was the streaming sensation, IShowSpeed. The Ohio-based creator was going crazy over Rockstar’s upcoming GTA title. He was shouting and jumping around on the stream seeing the trailer. The 17-year-old was losing his mind over the brilliant neon-lit Vice City in the game. But the most interesting part about his reaction was him confusing the game’s protagonist with a past GTA lead.
X (formerly Twitter) user @DramaAlert’s post featuring IShowSpeed’s reaction to GTA 6 releasing in 2025 was trending on the social media platform. One fan commented that Rockstar Games “finally fixed” the character models: “They finally fixed the character models. Game looks insane!”.

IShowSpeed in GTA 6: What else did IShowSpeed have to say about the trailer?
The new GTA 6 trailer mainly focuses on Lucia, one of the protagonists of the GTA 6.
However, we see her with a man, who is most likely Jason, the other protagonist of the game. This upcoming title would feature two protagonists based on the infamous American robbers Bonnie and Clyde. But while reacting to the protagonists, Speed confused Jason for Michael De Santa. He started shouting, “Michael, Michael is back” on the stream. Now, the GTA fans need no introduction as to who the streamer confused the new male protagonist for. Michael is the protagonist for the Grand Theft Auto V.
GTA V is possibly the most successful game made by Rockstar Games. Despite being over a decade old, it still has a huge fanbase. One of the possible reasons was the iconic protagonist trio of the game: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. But among this trio, Michael is possibly the most famous one. He was played by the American actor Ned Luke.
Talking about Ned Luke, he lately live streams on YouTube. He is getting a lot of attention for playing GTA V on his livestreams. After all, who wouldn’t love to see the American actor play with his iconic GTA character? However, even though Luke is getting a lot of love from his fans. But he has been annoyed by the constant swatting.
