Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto franchise is among the biggest IPs in the gaming industry. GTA 5 is the latest game in the franchise and another game is expected to be released in the next two years.
The franchise has always offered high quality open world gameplay. GTA 5 is arguably the best entry in the franchise and continues to enjoy unrivaled success in the gaming industry.
Although the game has not yet reached its 10th anniversary, Rockstar Games showed the first GTA 5 gameplay trailer ten years ago on July 9, 2013.
A gameplay trailer introduces the sprawling open world of Rockstar’s latest Grand Theft Auto. It shows several diverse locations covering areas such as mountains, oceans, and other parts of Los Santos.
Rockstar also featured three playable characters in a gameplay trailer. For the first time in GTA 5, multiple characters were introduced, each with unique personality traits and several distinct playable abilities.
A few months after this video was shown, the game was officially released for PS3 and Xbox 360. Over a year later, it was released for PC and next generation consoles, making it even more successful.
The game received extraordinary reception from the industry and won various awards. In addition, this release was a record for Rockstar Games: to date, GTA 5 has sold more than 180 million copies.
After an incredible launch, Rockstar introduced GTA Online to the game. This mode continues to receive updates to this day, supporting the latest Grand Theft Auto game on modern platforms.
The game’s success has turned it into a true industry giant, leading to extremely high expectations for Rockstar’s next Grand Theft Auto release. Perhaps Rockstar will remember the anniversary and show us the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6?
