Since it dropped, the GTA VI trailer has stirred up hype and excitement.
Fans of the franchise are eager with anticipation at the new game’s arrival, despite its release date being some way off.
But someone who clearly isn’t stoked about the new GTA is Elon Musk.
The Tesla CEO is no stranger when it comes to sharing his feelings about all sorts of things online.
Now Elon Musk has taken to X to reveal why he’s not a GTA fan, and why he could never bring himself to play GTA V.
A list of games I have not played:— Dan (@KettlebellLife) December 5, 2023
It all started when an X employee by the name of Dan posted on the platform.
“A list of games I have not played: GTA1, GTA2, GTA3, GTA4, GTA5, GTA6,” he stated.
Obviously, he hasn’t played GTA VI, as the game hasn’t even been released yet – but not the others?
Tried, but didn’t like doing crime. GTA5 required shooting police officers in the opening scene. Just couldn’t do it.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 5, 2023
Up steps Elon Musk, who responds to the tweet.
“Tried, but didn’t like doing crime,” Musk said.
“GTA5 required shooting police officers in the opening scene. Just couldn’t do it.”
As you can imagine, it didn’t take long for other X users to wade in on Musk.
“They’re pixels dawg,” one user replied.
“Did you follow the traffic laws and stop at all the red lights?” another quipped.
“Elon the type of dude to follow the speed limit in GTA,” a third joked.
While Elon Musk hasn’t been caught up in the hype surrounding the new video game, plenty of others have.
So much so, the GTA VI trailer has already shattered a YouTube record set by MrBeast.
In August, MrBeast shared that his video ‘7 Days Stranded at Sea’ had broken the world record for most views in 24 hours for a non-music video, after it was viewed 46 million times in less than a day.
Well, that record’s been broken, as the GTA VI trailer has already surpassed it, racking up 100 million views at the time of writing.
GTA VI has reportedly been in development for years.
Last month, though, the game’s producers, Rockstar Games, confirmed the first trailer for the highly-anticipated game would be arriving in early December to mark the company’s 25 anniversary.
Since then, the internet has been awash with leaks, including GTA VI footage leaked by a Rockstar director’s son on TikTok in the past few days.
The official trailer was meant to be released yesterday (Tuesday, 5 December).
However, because of the latest leak, Rockstar was forced to unveil it earlier than planned.
Although the official trailer posted on YouTube doesn’t feature any gameplay, we do get to see some stunning shots of Vice City and some pretty impressive-looking graphics.
As predicted, the game will feature a Bonnie and Clyde-style couple as the two main protagonists.
The trailer also gifts us another little treat: the game’s rough release date.
Unfortunately, we won’t be getting our hands on the game until 2025, but judging by trailer it’ll be worth the wait.
