Rockstar Games has officially addressed the massive GTA 6 video leak over the weekend.

In a statement on its social media account, Rockstar Games has now confirmed the authenticity of the leaked gameplay videos. The company expressed its great disappointment at having information about the game disclosed in such a manner. Rockstar Games insisted that the leak would not cause a delay in the project.

More than 90 videos of unfinished GTA 6 footage appeared online over the weekend. The videos displayed an early prototype of what seems to be an open-world version of Miami. This is consistent with earlier claims that GTA 6 would return to the renowned Vice City. Shortly after this significant leak, a hacker came out claiming responsibility. The hacker claimed to have discovered the prototype Grand Theft Auto 6 footage. Additionally, the hacker claims to be in possession of the source code for GTA 6 and the popular GTA 5.  

Rockstar Games confirmed that “an unauthorized third party” got access to and compromised the company’s systems. However, Rockstar has promised fans and the public that the incident will not have any effect on the live game services for Grand Theft Auto Online or the creation of GTA 6. The company assured fans of its dedication to issuing updates for the game when they are prepared to do so.

“We recently suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our systems, including early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto,” read the statement in part.

“At this time, we do not anticipate any disruption to our live game services nor any long-term effect on the development of our ongoing projects.

Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar, ordered users who had posted videos to take them down for violating copyright. The publisher also instructed the administrators of the GTA Forum to delete all information on the GTA 6 leak.
