Videos and the source code of Grand Theft Auto 6 have appeared on the Internet, which was allegedly preceded by the hacking of the Slack account of one of the Rockstar Games employees.
The footage and source code first surfaced on GTAForums, where a hacker who goes by the name “teapotuberhacker” shared a link to a RAR archive containing 90 stolen videos.
The footage appears to have been taken by the developers themselves while debugging various in-game features such as camera angles, tracking NPCs (computer-driven characters) and locations in Vice City. In addition, conversations between the protagonist and other characters can be heard on some of the recordings.
The hacker claims to have stolen the source code of GTA 5 and 6 and the GTA 6 test version, and is now allegedly blackmailing Rockstar Games to pay and prevent further release of the data. He says he’s accepting offers over $10,000 for the GTA 6 source code, but he’s not selling it at this time.
As members of the forum where the footage was leaked expressed doubt about the hacker’s claims, he also said that he was personally behind the recent attack on Uber. He posted screenshots of GTA 5 and GTA 6 source code on the forum as further proof.
The leaked footage made its way to YouTube and Twitter, and Rockstar Games issued copyright notices and requests to remove the leaked footage. The fact that most of the footage has already been removed from the Internet due to copyright infringement by Rockstar-owned Take 2 Interactive indicates that the footage is genuine.
However, Rockstar’s efforts were delayed, as the hacker and others had already started sharing the stolen footage and parts of the source code on Telegram.
