In the span of one day, leaks to the upcoming, much-awaited Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) were uploaded, spread, and taken down.
A user on GTAForums(opens in new tab) by the name of 'teapotuberhacker' who say they were also behind a recent Uber hack has posted 90 videos.
They claim come from a test build of Grand Theft Auto 6, running with "GTA 5 and 6 source code and assets".
On the post was a link leading to a downloadable archive that contained more than 3GB of videos. Various users quickly downloaded it and promptly started uploading them.
This topic quickly became viral. On Twitter, the hashtags #GTA6Leaked and #GTAVI are still trending as of the writing of this post.
The leak's validity has now been confirmed by Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier
(opens in new tab).
Jason Schreier said, "Not that there was much doubt, but I've confirmed with Rockstar sources this weekend's massive Grand Theft Auto VI leak is indeed real."
Let’s just hope that this huge leak won’t affect the development of the game that much. Of course, that’s only wishful thinking at this point.
