The GTA 6 trailer was released on December 5 and showcased the stunning world of GTA 6. It confirmed that the game will indeed be set in Vice City, particularly in the state of Leonida. However, not much information about the storyline or the game in general was given away. But that hasn't stopped eagle-eyed GTA 6 fans from spotting tucked-away details and easter eggs in the game. In fact, there's a whole subreddit dedicated to exploring GTA 6. In a new find, GTA 6 fans have noticed a Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) easter egg in the upcoming game's trailer. Check what it is.

GTA 6 trailer easter egg

On the GTA 6 subreddit, user kammui07 posted details about a potential RDR2 easter egg in GTA 6. The GTA 6 trailer shows both the characters, Lucia, and the unnamed male character, rob a convenience store called Uncle Jack's Liquor. Just before they enter the store, a poster of a mustached man appears on the store window. While this could have been just a design element added to enhance the store's outdoor appeal, GTA 6 fans think otherwise. As per the subreddit post, the mustached man closely resembles Sidney Metcalf, a criminal from RDR2 who was wanted dead or alive.

Posters of Sidney Metcalf were present in RDR2 that stated, “A liar and a cheat, Sidney Metcalf has violently robbed high stakes card games across several states.”

GTA 6: Features it could borrow from RDR2

GTA 6 is rumoured to feature some truly next-generation mechanics that haven't been seen in a video game before, and it might also borrow some features from Red Dead Redemption 2. Both protagonists are rumoured to carry loot bags which allows them to store consumables and cash, similar to Arthur Morgan's satchel in RDR2. Another feature from Red Dead Redemption 2 that could make its way to GTA 6 might be a witness and police recognition system. Like Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA 6 might also feature fences, but instead of fencing horses and carriages, players might be able to fence vehicles as well art.
