The source codes and many preview videos of the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto game have been stolen. It seems like a play on words or a mocking coincidence but it is reality.
Rockstar Games has confirmed that it has suffered a security breach on the servers on which it stored various content related to the development of the future Grand Theft Auto 6. Information and confidential content have been downloaded and made public on the network, including these images and videos, as well as a part of the source code. In a message published via its official Twitter profile, as expected Rockstar said that it was "footage from an early development version" and was quick to point out that the leak will not affect the development process of GTA. 6. Furthermore, it is added that the game will be released "when it is ready", which highlights that there is still a long way to go until development is complete. Officially, in fact, Rockstar has not yet disclosed any media or the possible release date of GTA 6. But according to some, the game would be released approximately between 2024 and 2025.
According to leaked footage, the game was developed and tested with GeForce GTX 1080, 2080 SUPER, RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 GPUs. The clips showed a variety of situations that it will be possible to live in the shoes of the two protagonists, a man and a woman (confirming the most recent rumors, which spoke of a couple in the style of Bonnie and Clyde) who will face a new adventure in a city. which is particularly reminiscent of Vice City, the setting of the GTA chapter originally launched on PlayStation 2 in 2002..
In addition to this information, the first information about the author of the content theft was disclosed. It was precisely his "colleagues" of the Lapsus $ team who provided the details that could allow us to trace his identity. It would be a very young programmer of 16 years of British nationality. In the past, he has already carried out large-scale attacks with theft of sensitive data owned by companies of international importance, and has already been arrested for these actions. The same hacker would be behind the breach of Microsoft and Uber servers. It will remain to be seen if his identity becomes public and if Rockstar will sue him directly.
