Grand Theft Auto 6 will likely be the biggest game to come out in 2025, but right now we have a lot of questions that still need answering, and one of the biggest is simply who is voicing the main characters we've seen in the first official trailer for GTA 6.
Although Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software's first press release may have given a few details about the game, it stopped short of naming either central protagonist. Leaks earlier in 2023 would have us believe that the game's central duo will be called Lucia and Jason, both of whom we see in the initial trailer.
But whilst we hear from Lucia a lot more, Jason is reduced to one word: "Trust" And it's this single word that has sent the internet into a frenzy with a belief that world-famous voice artist Troy Baker could be the voice behind Jason.
The Case For Troy Baker Voicing Jason in GTA 6
For those who are unaware, Troy Baker has voiced some of the biggest roles in video games, across a wide variety of genres. He's best known for voicing Joel in The Last of Us and Sam in Uncharted 4, but he's also got a wide range that has seen him also bring to life numerous heroes and villains like The Joker (Batman Arkham Origins), Pagen Min (Far Cry 4), and Booker DeWitt (Bioshock Infinite).
The point I guess we're trying to make is that, Troy Baker can 100% handle a big role, and arguably there's nothing bigger than a lead character in a Grand Theft Auto game.
Of course, none of this has anything to do with why people think Troy Baker could be voicing Jason in GTA 6. It's all because of that one word: Trust.
It has a somewhat raspy, southern, tone about it, which you might argue is similar to Joel in The Last of Us. We know that's an easy comparison to make, but it's also where our mind went as soon as we heard Jason speak in the trailer, and we're not alone.
Sure, this isn't an official confirmation, but it's a bit odd that half the world is all hearing the exact same voice and collectively thinking: "Jason sounds exactly like Troy Baker in the GTA VI trailer".
The Case Against Troy Baker Voicing Jason in GTA 6
Look, we're still speculating, but it is worth pointing out that Rockstar Games hasn't exactly gone out of its way to work with household names for quite some time.
The most famous actor from Rockstar's last game, Red Dead Redemption 2, was Graham Greene, who's recognisable enough, but admittedly is something of a D-list actor with a handful of notable smaller roles, and an Oscar nominee back in 1990 for Dances With Wolves.
Equally, former Rockstar Co-Founder Dan Houser is on record in 2018 saying: "We don't bring in name actors anymore because of their egos and, most important of all, because we believe we get a better sense of immersion using talented actors whose voices you don't recognize.”
Does this rule out Troy Baker? Not at all. Not least with Dan having departed Rockstar in the past few years.
So, Is Troy Baker Voicing Jason In GTA 6
The reality is right now it's impossible to say one way or another. There's no evidence to suggest who could be voicing Jason in Grand Theft Auto 6, and the only reason to think it could be Troy Baker is a gruff one-line delivery that in reality could be just about anyone.
Yes, it sounds a little bit like Troy's typical twang, but then, that's (unfortunately) far from conclusive.
