YESTERDAY over 90 clips from the upcoming GTA 6 were leaked onto the internet, and developer Rockstar Games explained what this means for the game’s release.
Publisher Take Two has issued a series of takedown notices for the footage in hopes of removing it from public view.
Because the footage is copyrighted and owned by the company, the person who posted the footage has no legal title to it.
In the GTA forums, the hacker wrote a comment that he wanted to “negotiate” with employees of the companies.
However, since their activity is illegal, it is likely that they will continue to take legal action in this case.
Following these leaks, Rockstar Games has issued a statement about the ongoing impact on GTA 6.
It states: “We recently suffered a network breach where an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our system, including early development material for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto.
“At this point in time, we do not expect any disruption to our live game services, nor any long-term impact on the development of our ongoing projects.”
Overall, the statement expressed disappointment that the game had previously been shown in such an early state.
The statement read: “We are extremely disappointed that details of our upcoming game are being shared in this way.
“Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game continues as planned, and as always, we are committed to providing you, our players, with an experience that truly exceeds your expectations.”
Rockstar intends to release official details about the game soon, with footage that has been prepared for the public.
It continues: “We’ll be updating everyone again soon and of course we’ll be giving you a proper update on this next game when it’s ready.
“We would like to thank everyone for their continued support during this situation.”
Fans reacted negatively to the content of the leaks, saying it looked worse than the nine-year-old GTA V.
It’s important to note, however, that the footage shown isn’t what the final game will look like, and it’s still a long way from release.
