GTA 6 videos appear on the web after “computer intrusion”

More than 380 million copies of Grand Theft Auto-related games have been sold worldwide to date, according to figures from Rockstar Games.

The Rockstar Games studio said on Monday that the videos of the next game in his hugely popular Grand Theft Auto series that hit the web this weekend were obtained as a result of an “intrusion” into his computer network.

A person who claimed to be behind this computer attack posted 90 videos from development versions of the game on a forum on Sunday. These excerpts were then taken up on YouTube, Twitter and other social networks.

We recently experienced a network breach in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our systems, including images of the Grand Theft Auto in development, explained Rockstar Games in a statement released on Monday.

The studio said it was extremely disappointed that details of [its] upcoming game were leaked in this way. The leaks should not have a negative effect on the game's development process, according to the press release.

The leaked videos seem to confirm information from the Bloomberg agency, in last July, according to which GTA 6 would allow to embody a female character for the first time. We see as main characters a couple formed by Lucia and Jason.

Very little information has been revealed to date by Rockstar Games on the highly anticipated next Grand Theft Auto. The game has been in development since 2014, with its predecessor having launched in 2013.

The official release date has yet to be announced, but rumors point to a launch in 2024, at the earliest, or in 2025.
