bilibili is a Chinese video website 

Just now I found the rockstar account on bilibili

There is only one DLC trailer on the account

So I very much doubt whether it is really rockstar🤔

Is this the one?

https://space.bilibili.com/3493119632870068

 

They seem to have uploaded only the Arena Wars trailer, that makes no sense, so it may not be legitimate, unless they're going to upload trailers for the Chinese market gradually. It is the trailer with Chinese subtitles.

Do you REALLY think you can find answers here? No- They ain't got anything yet.

你觉得在这里能找到答案?不可能的——外国网友怎么会比我们先一步知道中国互联网的事?

 

However, I think there is 99% probabilty, it is Rockstar Official. As you can see, from whether the presence of other game we-media, or the trending of Bilibili, it can be said that the account operator must have discussed with Bilibili about the whole "official appearance" in advance. Bilibili must have checked the account's identiy. But it is strange that Bilibili didn't verified the account with blue flash, which means that the account is proved as an official.

不过我觉得 99% 真。不管是其他游戏自媒体的捧场,还是 b 站的热搜,都能说明该账号运营方肯定跟 b 站事先商量过“官方入驻”的事宜。可以说,很有可能是真的。不过这个账号并没有蓝闪电——也就是官方认证。

 

Let's wait and see.

不急,跟他耍耍。

Thanks! Keep us posted if there's any more official-looking movement, translating Chinese via Google is very bad as you can probably imagine :kekw:

It is merely impossible, as GTAs are under strict censorship in Mainland China. The reason why they post Arena War alone, might be that this trailer does not contain blood, killing, criminality...

 

btw they didn't intentionally make video with Chinese subtitles - This video was out back in 2018, you'll find it on Steam store page in Chinese language(whether Simplified or Traditional).

Yep, I know, I was just saying that the correct trailer was uploaded, meaning it may not be a fake.


If this is a real account, I guess there's not much they can do with it, if GTA Vi's trailer has that content.

1 hour ago, they uploaded all traliers with Chinese subtitles from The Diamond Casino & Resort to Los Santos Drug War(8 in total).

 

It is worth noticing, that these trailers are shortened compared to the original ones, some shots has been removed. The LSDW trailer was cut to 31s in length. I haven't carefully compare them against original version yet. But I think the account owner intentionally removed all "illegal" shots such as drugs.

 

Some other users contacted Rockstar Support about whether this account is official. Support said that it isn't the official social media account. BUT someone pointed it out that it is possible that this account is outsourced to a Chinese company for management by Take 2, therefore support doesn't know anything about this social media account.

 

Exisiting trailer videos posted by other Bilibili users has been deleted by system for reason "撞车"(posting the same content as what's exisiting).

Interesting, thanks for the insights! So there is a good chance this might be legitimate, if the account hasn't been taken down, and the trailers are cut, considering laws in China. Other users getting their uploads removed is also a good indicator that they might be considering this the legitimate Rockstar account.

 

Rockstar Support would likely not know about this anyway, it's possible this information hasn't been given to them yet. This is probably done by one of the Chinese Take-Two offices, as they have people who manage each game studio's advertisements and PR for each market. Very interesting how they only now registered a Bilibili account tbh.

 

If it's not legitimate then it's a very elaborate fake if someone is going to the effort of editing out the videos! I assume those are just the Chinese versions of the trailers though.

In fact, the Bilibili official is also actively promoting this matter, and they even launched an official event for this, which shows that it is very likely that Bilibili invited Rockstar to create an account

However, key words "GTAOL", "GTA OL", "GTAV", etc, are still on ban on Bilibili.

 

Edit: They only unbanned the search key word. Post containing "GTA5" or "GTAV" is still not allowed.

I suppose all signs point to legitimate then. Very interesting, I guess they're expanding their marketing efforts in China, especially with the introduction of the Chinese New Year content in GTA Online.

I thought that's because of Lunar New Year becoming a state holiday in California.

 

But it still surprised me when I see "新年快乐,恭喜发财" instead of "HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR" on the in-game loading page's poster.

(Well, it turned out, they made this localized for all supported language. Russian was the exception, I think.)

Just now they updated with a RDR2 trailer. 

(They even actually wrote a description for this video)

 

Some more about this account. Bilibili has verified this account as Rockstar Games official.

Plus, they closed both comment sector and bullet screen comment for all videos.

 

A new update of the eclipse garage came out, too.

 

From my point of view, it is just because the account operator doesn't want to spend too mcuh time on actually managing it.

Potentially, it certainly is another market they can tap into for advertising (they already did, but it'll grow their reach there quite a lot having a Bilibili account). However, T2/R* had also been hiring for a marketing manager in Asia I believe, and this could be a part of that effort to expand their marketing efforts in those countries as well, in general and not necessarily due to GTA VI.
