The highly anticipated video game GTA 6 suffered a massive early development content leak, with over 90 gameplay videos flooding social media.


Since the confirmation of its future release, Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) became one of the most anticipated releases in the history of video games. Fans of the iconic saga expected months of silence from developer Rockstar North before even getting a first look; imagine their surprise when videos of leaked gameplay suddenly flooded social media .


The trove of illegal sneak peeks, which appeared a matter of hours ago in a post on the gaming site GTAForums , contains some 90 video clips of the game , complete with debugging code and working interfaces that helped support the veracity of the leaker’s claims.

Interestingly, the hacker (known as ‘ teapotuberhacker ‘ on GTAForums) also claims to be the person responsible for the recent Uber hack and says he got the video by gaining access to a Rockstar employee’s Slack account, which is the same modus operandi. used in the virtual hit to the transport platform.

Currently, videos of the project are circulating on social networks showing its engine, the planned configuration and the first iterations of the game. The narrative, which will draw inspiration from the infamous Bonnie and Clyde, also aims to retain the satirical themes of the franchise while creating a more inclusive tone .

The snippets posted by the alleged hacker also provide an expanded view of heists, NPC interactions, vehicles, and more from his sprawling sandbox. These elements excited the fans of the video game saga, whose impact on popular culture promises to continue advancing.

Several clips from the leak show both male and female lead characters , which dovetails with other reports about what to expect in the upcoming game. They also show the game taking place in a fictional city analogous to Miami , again coinciding with early reports about what GTA 6 will bring to the franchise.

Last minute: they confirm the veracity of the leak of GTA 6

Despite the convincing appearance of the GTA 6 leak, the specialized media were waiting for an official confirmation about the leak. This came through Jason Schreier , a journalist for Bloomberg , who through his Twitter account claimed that he was able to confirm the authenticity of the leak with various Rockstar Games sources.

The journalist called it one of the biggest leaks in video game history: ” Not that there was much doubt, but I have confirmed with Rockstar sources that this weekend’s massive Grand Theft Auto VI leak is real . 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 .”

” For those who asked: There are several reasons why this is a nightmare for Rockstar. One is that it will disrupt work for a while . Another is that it may lead management to limit the flexibility of working from home . The repercussions of this leak may not be clear for quite some time ,” he added in a second tweet.
