9 years after GTA 5 was originally launched, finally Rockstar Games is working on the next edition of the insanely popular video game – Grand Theft Auto 6. The recent Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks are absolutely real and Rockstar Games has been demoralized by the massive data infiltration.
Hacker has infiltrated Rockstar Games’ internal servers and stole 3GB worth of early GTA 6 footage, photos, and source code for the game. The hacker, who has also claimed credit for the damaging Uber hack, published the confidential data publicly and the leaks have been widely circulated in the last 11 hours, delivering a crushing blow to the developers at Rockstar Games.
There were reports that source code for GTA VI has been released alongside 90 videos of pre-alpha Grand Theft Auto VI footage.
The footage is early and unfinished, of course. This is one of the biggest leaks in video game history and a nightmare for Rockstar Games.”
The hacker, who goes by the name of “teapotuberhacker,” says that they’ve acquired even more stolen data including closely-guarded source code for Grand Theft Auto V. This top secret data is one of the most valuable assets that any game studio has in their possession.
The leaked footage reinforces earlier reports that GTA 6 would feature the series’ first playable female protagonist set amid a modern day Bonnie and Clyde crime caper. The devil-may-care story was to be told in a tropical Miami-like setting, indicating a return to Vice City.
Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games have came up with a statements on the matter that the leak is indeed real.
