Rockstar confirmed that the GTA VI footage was leaked
Rockstar released an official statement confirming the leak and letting us know that it’s looking into the leak. “We recently suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our systems”.
The statement goes on to say that the leak includes early developmental footage of the game. So, while the focal point of this leak is the footage, the statement alludes to other types of data being stolen. This could mean that other information about the game could also be leaked onto the internet.
The game is still pretty far from being released, so any of the footage you see won’t be a reflection of the final game. It’s all developmental footage and for testing purposes.
Since this is such a large leak, you should expect to see more on this story as it unfolds. As you can imagine, if the company were to get its hands on the hacker who did this, there will be some major jail time to be served. You’ll want to stay tuned for more information on this leak.
