        It’s because after a certain point, YouTube stops updating the view counts in real time. Some other stats (such as likes) will still update, though.

        Exactly, thank you. I get what the massive appeal to the game is. I’ve played all the GTAs (yes I’m old), but something is fucky if it has that many updoots and not even 100k views (at the time).

          Views don’t update in real time but likes do. Always happens with big videos like this. It’s something to do with YouTube reconciling the view counts across multiple servers, which gets very difficult with large numbers. It’s a bit easier for them to create a stable like count when each user can only like it once, so they’re essentially adding that user to a list and then counting the length of the list.

      This is the most expensive game ever built.

        I get that. I’m excited for it too. My point is 80k views but 2.1 m likes. How could 2.1 m people like it when it hasn’t even been viewed 100k times yet? As soon as you load the page it’s a view, so at least 2.1m people would have had to open the video to like it.

          It was linked through a third party like twitter.

          The view counter is different than the like counter. If checked after a couple of days most likely we would say the views more than the likes.

      YouTube probably updates views on a periodic basis and likes in realtime.

      My guess is you’ll see views as higher than likes once activity dies down and the latter catches up to the former.

      The video was up early with a premiere scheduled, so people could start liking it before the video was available.

      You’re looking at the sequel to the game that is still within Steam’s Top 10 active player count, 8.5 years after its release.

      People have been speculating on GTA6 for well over 5 years at this point, it’s no surprise this announcement is popular.

    Coming 2025

    Fuck me, it’s still at least a year and a half off. I’d bet it’s either coming September or November 2025 or being delayed until 2026.

    Which would make it at least 12 years since GTA 5’s original release. That’s absolutely nuts.

      better than releasing a half finished game that is unplayable in the first 6 months and then barely playable for another 6months and only with the dlc 3 months later they bring features they promised on release.

      Dont get me wrong i’d love to play RIGHT NOW, but i’d rather wait for a polished experience than to get disappointed.

          IDK, I said the same thing about Cyberpunk, No Man’s Sky, Diablo IV, Starfield, and what feels like every other AAA game that comes out these days.

          Delays and long development times no longer mean quality, if they ever did.

    Absolutely unreal. 50 million views in 9 hours. The game looks amazing! First viewing I was a little underwhelmed, but watching the trailer again on a bigger screen and it does really look fucking great! This is going to be the biggest selling game in history, without a doubt.

    It’s almost unbelievable that the graphics are this good.

    Rockstar always releases their first trailer a little under 2 years out from the planned release date, so 2025 was no surprise.

    Also, they are one of the few developers who release the first trailer where it really looks like the end product, so I know it’s legit, and the hair indicates there’s FSR, so it really does seem like this is what we might see on release - but that’s still kind of mind blowing given the gap between this and what’s been out so far.

      bear in mind that R* now distributes GTA V with Razor1911 cracked binaries because of how much better they are performance wise than R*'s own

    I have liked all the GTA’s except 4. I’m sure I’ll get this one too. I hope that the single player campaign brings back some of the niceties from San Andreas. I want to have a garage of cars, rare ones that I’ve found and customized, and I want to be able to wreck them and be able to get them back from garage (without having to buy them again). Same with planes/boats/etc.

    I.E when I play through the game I should be able to permanently unlock things, not have to repurchase them with basically micro-transactions, even if the money is easy to get.

      Man I loved 4. So many people seemed to dislike it but I thought it was a fantastic game and a MASSIVE step up from the previous gen titles (in graphics and physics etc.)

        The physics in 4 were the best in the series IMO. The car handling was perfect, and not MidnightClub-style arcadey (point and vroom).

        Plowing through pedestrians at the park had real replay value in GTA IV, with very interesting reactions each time. In GTA V this became somewhat canned in terms of animation diversity.

        GTA IV felt grimey and real to me. I loved it. Just wish they had planes and parachutes (albeit Ballad of Gay Tony brought the latter in)
