This weekend, Rockstar was the victim of a huge leak. A hacker has managed to get his hands on the source codes of GTA V and GTA VIbefore publishing a multitude of gameplay videos on the web to attest to the veracity of his crime. Faced with the biggest leak in its history, Rockstar was forced to react.
the biggest leak in rockstar history
Over 80 gameplay videos from GTA VI landed on the web this weekend after the Rockstar hack. A hacker who wanted to get in touch with the American studio, while hinting that he was ready to sell the source code of GTA Vfor a five-figure sum. Although the source code of GTA VI is not yet put on the shelves, its sale would sign a huge blow for Rockstar, even more than this monstrous leak.
While this leak presents itself as particularly problematic, the publisher no longer being in control of its communication, nor of the security of its source code, Rockstar made it known via an official press release that the latter was not going to upset their initial schedule.

Rockstar is thus adamant, not foreseeing any disruption of its live gaming services or any long-term effect on the development of its current projects. In other words, a report is to be excluded. A Rockstar all the same “extremely disappointed” who will not fail to present in good and due form this GTA VI that many gamers have been asking for for several years now. Still, Rockstar wants to make sure the game is “ready” first before it’s presented.
It remains to be seen when this GTA VI will it be presented to the general public. Despite everything, with the gameplay videos, the most impatient were able to get a taste of the game mechanics of this new opus. Videos from a project still in development whose environment should change drastically, depending on their age. Patience is therefore required, hoping that Rockstar is not again the victim of a new unexpected.
