GTA 6 was hit by huge leaks over the weekend, and Rockstar Games has now addressed the situation. However, is the damage already done?
The GTA 6 leaks over the weekend would have been impossible unless you were submerged beneath a massive rock. Around 90 videos apparently show early development footage of the highly anticipated Rockstar Games title.
The GTA 6 leaks are a major setback to Rockstar.
It's been a major blow for Rockstar Games since it hasn't released anything related to GTA 6, other than acknowledging that it's still in the works. Any AAA studio works tirelessly to keep unrevealed games under wraps.
This massive GTA 6 leak has been one of the most extensive in video game history, and despite clearly being very early footage, it hasn't stopped corners of the internet from praising its apparent quality.
It's worth noticing that the footage has been leaked, and GTA 6 is just a few months away from being released, which is why everything seems unfinished.
Rockstar Games has since addressed the allegations and verified that it has been infiltrated by a hacker.
In a statement posted via Twitter, an unauthorised third-party illegally accesses and downloaded confidential information from our systems, including early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto.
"At this time, we do not anticipate any disruption to our live game services, nor any long-term impact on the development of our ongoing projects."
Rockstar Games has defended the game after fans objected to the early quality of Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks.
Neil Druckmann, the director of Naughty Dog, as well as the writer at Santa Monica Studio, Alanah Pearce, are some of the rockstar games' developers.
Rockstar Games is being supported by the developers.
The GTA 6 leaks can still be found on the internet. However, Rockstar Games is presumably working to eradicate them as soon as possible.
So, if you want to see the early developmental footage, these should be relatively easy to find.
When will GTA 6 be released?
Rockstar Games hasn't announced a release date for GTA 6 at the time of writing. After all, official gameplay hasn't even been revealed yet.
Take-Two, the publisher of Rockstar Games, has made several suggestions that GTA 6 might be released in 2024.
