Grand Theft Auto V - Coming to New Generation Consoles

Expanded & Enhanced Official Trailer

The official trailer for the Expanded and Enhanced editions of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online (for PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X) was released on September 9, 2021.


  • From Trailer #1:
    • There is an easter egg at the scene right after the GoPostal Boxville van drives past the screen. There is a sidewalk with the street number 2405, which is a reference to the birthdate of Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games.
    • At 1:05, A Police Car has the registration number OCT 25 on its front. This is a possible easter egg on the date of the announcement of the trailer. Before the Spring 2013 release announcement was made, many people believed it to be an easter egg for a release date of the game, as all GTA games (except GTA IV because of delay, and DLCs) have been released in October.
    • The lines and dialogue that Michael says may be a reference to Michael's voice actor Ned Luke, as he was beginning to retire from acting before he started working on GTA V.
  • Franklin's Trailer is the only one that doesn't feature Trevor.
  • In the Official Trailer, at approximately 0:18, when Trevor fires his shotgun at the security camera, it seems that the slugs goes straight through the camera and hits the wall. This is most likely a glitch.
  • In the First Person Experience Trailer can be seen that the player is being chased by FIB Granger's with sirens off and 4 NOOSE officers hanging of the side. This is never seen during normal game-play or any missions.
  • The 60fps PC Trailer is the only trailer that Rockstar didn't officially upload to their YouTube official account, instead to their own Website.
    • This may have been due to YouTube's inability to make 60fps format to medium resolution (360p or 480p), while the Rockstar Website can.
