Rockstar Games has been the victim of a GTA 6 leak in these recent hours, although the company has now released an official statement to comment on the event, where the American company has assured that there won’t be any “disruption” on the development of the “ongoing projects”. Check out the complete details below.
Rockstar Responds to GTA 6 Leak, Claims Project Will Not be Delayed
Rockstar Games confirms that the massive GTA 6 leak is real, but that it won’t affect their development plans. The company has confirmed that the leaked videos are from the new installment of the game, GTA 6. Rockstar also regrets that the leak has taken all the prominence and they have not had the opportunity to present the game as it deserves.
The episode has in fact seen more than 90 online gameplay videos and game images from an internal build of the sequel to Grand Theft Auto V.
Some stolen videos date back to 2021, leaked directly from the Slack server used by the developers, something of truly unprecedented severity. In principle, the leak will not affect the game’s development, nor its games as a service (GTA Online), nor the rest of the franchises.
The message from Rockstar Games (via Facebook) reads the following:
“We recently suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed 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 effect on the development of our ongoing projects. We are extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way.”
“Our work 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.”
“We will update everyone again soon and, of course, will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready. We want to thank everyone for their ongoing support through this situation.”
The hacker would have admitted that he has the source code for GTA V and GTA 6 and is ready to sell it to the same developers for a ransom. We just have to wait for further developments on the affair, which could now close without further fuss.
