Rockstar Games has gained over a million YouTube subscribers in the hours leading up and following the first Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer reveal.

After years of hype and 10 years since the release of Grand Theft Auto 5, Rockstar Games has finally shared the first of many trailers for the next title in the series.

The GTA 6 trailer reveal didn’t go off as planned, with Rockstar having to release it early after someone uploaded it to Twitter/X in its entirety.

That didn’t ruin any of the hype, however, as Rockstar Games’ YouTube channel saw massive growth in subscribers with the trailer’s reveal.

According to Social Blade, Rockstar Games’ YouTube grew roughly 1.76M subscribers between December 4 and December 5, 2023, at the time of writing.

That’s not the only bit of massive growth that Rockstar saw with the reveal either, with it gaining over 70 million views in less than 24 hours.

This broke MrBeast’s former record of around 54 million views in the same time frame, which is far from a small feat in itself.

It’s unknown when we’ll get the next bit of GTA 6 news from Rockstar, but it’s quite clear that fans are hungry for as much as possible.
