GTA 6 gameplay footage LEAKS, sending Rockstar Games scrambling

by | Sep 19, 2022 - 1:57PM | Gaming

Early footage of GTA 6 has leaked well ahead of the planned launch of the hotly-anticipated game.

Following the confirmation of rumors that Grand Theft Auto 6 would feature a female protagonist for the first time, we’ve now got a first look at them and their male counterpart.

The leak came after a hacker reportedly breached developer Rockstar Games’ Slack and Confluence servers.

The footage originally leaked on GTAForums, but it’s worse than just that for Rockstar.

That’s because the hacker claims to have the entire source code and a test build of the game as well.

And they claim they’ll only refrain from publishing it if they’re paid off by the developer.

An hour of gameplay footage has now been shared on YouTube by user Banden.

It clearly reveals the appearance of the two main characters.

The male protagonist is reportedly named Jason, while the female lead is named either Lucia or Alexandra Cristina.


Shorter clips shared on Twitter also confirm that Vice City will be at least one playable location in the game.

However, it’s worth noting that what has been leaked is clearly very early in the development stage.

What does the GTA 6 leak mean for Rockstar Games?

For Rockstar Games, the leak is an absolute disaster given Grand Theft Auto 6 was only slated to hit shelves in late 2023 or early 2024.

“This is one of the biggest leaks in video game history and a nightmare for Rockstar Games,” Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier said on Twitter, confirming the leaked content was indeed real.

Right now, it’s likely Rockstar is scrambling to reason with the hacker that targeted them.

That’s after the original forum post was edited, and the hacker stated they’re “looking to negotiate a deal” with the developer.

Rockstar’s owner Take-Two Interactive is also fervently placing copyright strikes on footage from the game in an attempt to have it removed from the internet.

Rockstar or Take-Two are yet to comment publicly on the leaks.

All that is for sure is that the companies now have a big headache on their hands.
