Rockstar has now confirmed that the Grand Theft Auto 6 leak from earlier this week was real. However, it has made sure that development for the game won’t be affected or delayed by it.
If you missed the news, a hacker managed to leak screenshots and videos from Grand Theft Auto 6. The leaks confirm a female playable character is included, and you can rob places.
Rockstar has now released a statement on Twitter about the leak and what this means going forward for its development. You can read the full statement below.
“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. 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. 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.”
Hopefully we will see actual footage from the game sometime in the near future.
