According to a statement from Rockstar Games, the company recently suffered a “network intrusion” that resulted in the unauthorized release of early development footage for Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI). The footage, which is believed to be from an internal alpha build of the game, circulated on social media and YouTube over the weekend and sparked widespread speculation about the game’s features and details.
In the statement, Rockstar said, “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 company went on to assure fans that the leak will not impact the development of the project and that work on GTA VI will continue as planned. “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,” Rockstar said. “We will update everyone again soon and, of course, will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready.”
According to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, who verified the authenticity of the leak, the footage is “early and unfinished.” Schreier added, “This is one of the biggest leaks in video game history and a nightmare for Rockstar Games. … The repercussions of this leak might not be clear for quite a while.”
