The next game in the Grand Theft Auto series is one of the most anticipated video games of all time, and a new “possible” leak could give us our best look yet at GTA VI.
The wealth of footage, discovered by PCGamer via a post on GTAForums by the alleged hacker himself, contains around 90 videos of snippets of the game, code debugs and its environment, which certainly help the claim that we are indeed seeing gameplay footage for the first time. of the new GTA.
Interestingly, the hacker (who goes by the name ‘teapotuberhacker’ on GTAForums) also claims to be responsible for the recent Uber hack, and reports that he obtained the gameplay video by accessing a Rockstar employee’s Slack account himself that is, a way that was used for malicious access to Uber’s systems.
The content we see is either real or created with such great attention to detail, winning over the GTAForums community as a whole which, as its name suggests, is about a website for fans of the legendary series of games. However, the fact that Rockstar “downloads” very quickly every link that republishes the material in the last hours on the Internet, suggests that this really concerns GTA 6.
Various clips from the leaked footage (90 videos in total) depict both male and female lead characters, which fits with other reports about what we should expect from the upcoming game. They also show the gameplay taking place in a fictional city in Miami, which again matches early reports about what GTA 6 will bring to the franchise.
It’s worth noting that the videos likely show an older build, which some hints could be from around 2017. Although we only recently found out about it officially, GTA VI has reportedly been in development since 2014 (GTA 5 was originally released in 2013), so it would be reasonable to expect the screenshots to come from various builds over the past few years.
Earlier this month, Rockstar pulled the GTA 5 and GTA 5 Online titles from its website, listing the title “Thank you,” which many took as a sign that it was ending active development of the long-running and much-expanded fifth installment in the series for to focus on the upcoming sequel.
