GTA 6 Leaks: Rockstar Games Releases Statement

3.5
A massive leak of Grand Theft Auto VI footage over the weekend has been making the rounds online, showcasing a ton of early footage of the next Grand Theft Auto video game. It was claimed at the time that a hacker had acquired it through access to developer Rockstar Games, and now the company has officially addressed the leaks -- and confirmed that someone obtained unauthorized access to its systems and early footage of the new Grand Theft Auto.


"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," the official statement, attributed to the Rockstar Games Team, reads. "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," the official statement continues. "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."


Notably, the statement seems to indicate that the leaks will not impact the development timeline of the new Grand Theft Auto. There had been some speculation that, given the severity, the release date of Grand Theft Auto VI could get pushed back. There is still the possibility that more could come out, or that the unauthorized access could have been more impactful than initially assumed, and that all of this could change, but for now Rockstar Games seems to be on track despite it all.

Officially, all that is truly known about Grand Theft Auto VI is that a new Grand Theft Auto is officially in development. The official title might not even be Grand Theft Auto VI, but that is what everyone has been calling it in the absence of an official title.

Leaks can actually be helpful, because it helps the players to see what it's going to be like etc,
and Rockstar would benefit from it from the mass sales it may have

I am confused on how Rockstar is that affected by a person releasing information or videos even, about GTA VI... I do understand that they want to be private about it and want to 'surprise' their base with what they have, however from what I get from this. This will bring MORE attention and anticipation for GTA VI. You ask me, I am stoked that this has happened, it makes me want to pre-purchase it more than I have before!.. Yes, how it was obtained wasn't good, however, a small 'leak' will not kill what they have been working on since the start of GTA V. If anything it should give them an idea of how many people are still waiting for it or are still playing previous GTA games...
