Grand Theft Auto, an open-world action-adventure game, was first released in 1997. It has since become Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company’s best-selling product. Rockstar Games recently said that an undisclosed video from the next “Grand Theft Auto VI” game was stolen and distributed illegally over the weekend.
According to PC Gamer, a user on the GTA Forums uploaded a 3-gigabyte file featuring 90 films of “GTA VI” footage. The hacker allegedly stated that they may “leak more data soon,” including the source code, assets, and test builds for “GTA V” and “GTA VI.” Rockstar acknowledged the “GTA 6” leak and expressed it was “extremely disappointed” with the situation.
We recently suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and download confidential information from our systems, including early development footage from the next ‘Grand Theft Auto.’
We are extremely disappointed to have any details of our next games shared with you all in this way. Our wokr on the next ‘Grand Theft Auto’ game will continue as planned and we remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations.
According to Rockstar, it doesn’t anticipate any interruptions to its live game services or any “long-term effects” on the progress of its existing projects. As previously reported by Xfire, a putative source with ties to Rockstar Games going by the moniker of Matheusvictorbr has given potential information regarding Grand Theft Auto 6’s alleged story, setting, and playable characters.
The inclusion of multiple playable characters in Grand Theft Auto 6, the introduction of a cryptocurrency system akin to Bitcoin, and intercontinental travel through various time periods are some other common rumors surrounding the game. Additionally, Matheusvictorbr acknowledges that GTA 6 is still in its early stages of production and that Rockstar’s alleged release plans are subject to change.
