CEO Strauss Zelnick says “we remain confident that we are positioning our business for a significant inflection point in fiscal 2025, which we believe will include new record levels of operating performance.” That significant boost to revenue predictions is supposedly due to the GTA 6 launch.

During the official trailer, we were introduced to the protagonists of GTA 6, with a focus on the the first GTA 6 female lead, Lucia. While there’s still much we’ve yet to learn about her as a character, the trailer gives us some hints, with her wearing prison clothing, which tells us she’s clearly had some trouble with the law. Not only on that, but Lucia is shown on multiple occasions with an unnamed male character, who looks set to be play a main role in the next entry – while he’s been unofficially referred to as both Jason and James in the past, we’ve not had confirmation on his name. The pair appear to share a bond, or a kind of Bonnie and Clyde-like relationship, and speak of trust as they get stuck into some crime together.
