The GTA 6 leaks that surfaced online have been confirmed to be real by Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games, although this will not have an impact on development.
The “early development footage” was illegally taken from Rockstar’s systems as a part of a network intrusion, and Rockstar Games posted a statement on its social media platforms expressing disappointment that its upcoming game was shared in this way for the first time.
Here is the statement from Rockstar Games in case you didn’t see the tweet posted above.
