A big leak has revealed early Grand Theft Auto 6 gameplay videos.
Rockstar’s next installment in its open-world game, Grand Theft Auto VI, has leaked online. According to PC Gamer, a member of the GTA Forums has shared a 3GB file containing 90 films of GTA 6 footage. It’s unclear how the video was obtained, but the “teapotuberhacker” poster claims to be behind the unrelated Uber breach that occurred late last week and warns that they will “release more material soon,” including GTA V and GTA VI source code, assets, and testing builds.
The leaked videos are now being shared on YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and several gaming communities. A playable female character named Lucia is shown raiding a restaurant and holding hostages in one YouTube video. There is a lot of placeholder text, indicating that this is obviously incomplete gameplay, and you can see how the game engine is recognizing items in the area.
Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar, appears to have begun submitting takedown requests for some GTA VI YouTube videos. Some videos now state, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Take 2 Interactive,” yet many others are still accessible.
