Rockstar’s next installment in its Grand Theft Auto series could be one of the most anticipated video games out there, and a newly alleged leak could give us our best look at GTA 6 yet. The trove of data, which PCGamer discovered via a GTAForums post from the alleged hacker himself, includes some 90 videos of clips from the game, with debugging code and interfaces supporting the truth of the claims.
Interestingly, the hacker (who goes by “teapotuberhacker” on the GTAForums) also claims to be the person responsible for the recent Uber hack, saying they got the video by accessing his Slack account. a Rockstar employee — which is the same MO for Uber’s massive breach.
The leaks themselves appear to be either legit, or faked with such a high level of attention to detail and authenticity that they have won over what was initially a highly skeptical audience of GTAForums members.
Several clips from the leak show both male and female lead characters, which does fit with other messages about what to expect in the upcoming game. They also show gameplay taking place in a Miami analog fictional city, again matching early reports of what GTA 6 will bring to the franchise.
It’s worth noting that these videos probably show an older build, which is an indication that they could be from around 2017. The game has reportedly been in development since 2014 (GTA 5 originally launched in 2013), so it would be reasonable to expect to see snapshots of various builds over the years.
Earlier this month, Rockstar rolled out the credits for GTA 5 and GTA 5 Online on its website, titled “Thank You,” which many took as a sign that it was actively developing the long-running and much-expanded fifth installment in the series to get more. to focus directly on the upcoming sequel.
We contacted Rockstar owner Take-Two Interactive, but didn’t hear back immediately. We will update this post with more if and when they respond.
