After the big leak this past weekend of Grand Theft Auto 6, Rockstar Games officially released a comment on the current tumultuous situation.
Rockstar Games has officially acknowledged and made an announcement regarding the massive Grand Theft Auto 6 leak that took place over the weekend. Although there is no doubt about the authenticity of these GTA 6 videos, many people are still waiting for Rockstar Games’ response. Overall, the studio statement said it was “deeply disappointed” by the incident but not surprised by any lasting impact.
As many of you may be aware, a hacker seems to have been able to access and download something related to Grand Theft Auto 6. This includes around 90 videos in development of the game, as well as code. source of GTA 5 and GTA 6. Apparently, the hacker is looking to sell the Grand Theft Auto 5 source code and is willing to make a “deal” with Rockstar Games, regarding the source code of GTA 6. This situation is ongoing. , but currently the source code is still not for sale, the forums where the hacker operates have been deleted, the hacker’s account has been deleted, and their location may have been compromised by another hacker. In other words, Rockstar Games may have been involved but it’s hard to say for sure.
This message from Rockstar Games from the company, reveals that this incident does not predict any long-term impact on their online services such as GTA Online, nor the development of ongoing projects. like GTA 6. Not to suspect an already difficult situation, but it could also be just the company’s word to reassure consumers and their stock holders. After all, if GTA 5’s source code fell into the wrong hands, the Online section could theoretically be overrun by hackers and harassers. Similar security issues could affect GTA 6 if the game is discovered as well. However, it is hoped that Rockstar will find the culprit and find a way to secure the current state of affairs.
The closing announcement was meant to show that they were still working on the next Grand Theft Auto, and said that they look forward to properly introducing people to the game when it’s ready. Game development takes years, so having such behind-the-scenes details leak online isn’t the best way to reveal a game. But hopefully, that doesn’t take away players’ interest in the game.
Rockstar Games also thanked everyone and the fans who have supported them during the past time. Unfortunately, many sympathize with the Rockstar developers when their work is leaked online in an unfinished state that can be severely criticized. These unfounded criticisms even spread from GTA 6 to games like Saints Row, and it’s a situation made worse in many ways. But, hopefully Rockstar Games can come out of this better and when the game is revealed.
