GTA 6’s Trailer Is Breaking Other YouTube Records

GTA 6 Is Already The Most Liked Trailer On YouTube

Apart from overtaking Grand Theft Auto 5‘s reveal trailer, Grand Theft Auto 6 has broken another, even larger record on YouTube. MrBeast previously held the record for most YouTube views in 24 hours for a non-music video with his August 2023 video “Every Country On Earth Fights For $250,000!“, which amassed 46 million views in a day, something that GTA 6‘s trailer passed in less than 12 hours.

Grand Theft Auto 6‘s trailer is also already the most-liked trailer on YouTube in less than a day. The record was held by the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, which racked up 4.1 million likes in over 6 years. The previous gaming trailer with the most likes was the reveal for Battlefield 1 with 2.4 million likes. Both of these records were decimated by the Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer, which beat it in just a few hours and holds over 8.4 million likes as of the time of writing.

Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto 6‘s trailer several hours before its previously announced time due to it leaking, something that’s becoming a pattern with the highly-anticipated title after the 90 development videos that flooded the internet last year. Despite this, it’s clear that the hype for the game is immense, and these leaks have done nothing to slow this down.
