The American company Rockstar Games has officially confirmed yesterday's leak of an early build of GTA VI. A day later, the eminent developer issued an appeal in which he confirmed that a third party had access to confidential information.
We recently experienced a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally gained access to sensitive information on our systems. At this time, we do not expect any disruption to our game services or any long-term impact on the development of our current projects.
We are extremely disappointed that any details of our next game have been shared like this. We will continue to work on the next part of Grand Theft Auto as planned. We remain committed to providing you with an experience that exceeds your expectations. We will introduce you to the game when it is ready. We want to thank everyone for their support in this situation.
Recall that the day before, specific details of GTA VI appeared on the network, including the first gameplay and the source code of the game. On the Grand Theft Auto community forum, a user under the nickname teapotuberhacker posted a link leading to GTA VI media files. Dozens of videos on the upcoming long-term construction turned out to be in the public domain, and later tens of thousands of lines of code were added to them.
Despite all attempts by Rockstar Games to block the video, millions of fans have seen the first footage of the upcoming project. As it became known later, hackers leaked an early build for PS4 to the network. At the same time, the author of the leak himself announced his desire to make a deal with the developers of the game.
