In the world of video games, the excitement surrounding new releases is often judged by the popularity of their trailers. A recent achievement in this regard has been made by the highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6). Its debut trailer has made a remarkable impact on the gaming community, surpassing the view counts of other major titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Cyberpunk 2077, and even the long-standing popular game Minecraft.
The trailer for GTA 6 was released on December 4, 2023, and has already amassed over 168 million views, making it the second most-watched video game trailer. This is a significant achievement, especially considering the game's release on consoles is not until 2025. GTA 6's trailer has garnered more views than other popular titles such as Clash of Clans, Team Fortress 2, and even its predecessor Grand Theft Auto 5.
However, the title for the most-watched video game trailer still belongs to the trailer for Subway Surfers, a mobile endless runner game released in 2012. Its trailer has over 361 million views, a testament to the game's widespread appeal and enduring relevance in the gaming world.
As GTA 6 gets closer to its release, speculation about whether its trailer can eventually surpass Subway Surfers' viewership is rife. With the current trajectory and the game's historical popularity, it's a possibility that cannot be ruled out. The gaming community eagerly awaits GTA 6's release and the possibility that it could become the most-watched game trailer.
