a user in GTA Forumclaiming to be behind too Uber’s latest hackjust posted nearly 100 videos online claiming to show footage of Rockstar’s development Grand Theft Auto VI, It’s circulating on almost every social media platform right now.
matches a lot what Bloomberg report Earlier this year –Including the game will co-star with a woman and set in Sin City——These videos are all materials in development, Unfinished textures and models are everywhere, and the code plays live in many of them. The leaker is currently accepting requests to ask people what else they would like to see in more videos.
in a, A white male playable character encounters a racist NPC by the pool, and as the conversation progresses, you can see the code needed for the interaction play along with the in-game actions. In the other, the female character – I’m just assigning it that way because it’s a series in the first place –Explore one of the series’ notorious strip clubs.
one of the more complete videos The upload shows the two characters working together to rob a restaurant, pointing guns at customers before police arrive. Others are rougher in shape, just a featureless placeholder character moving across an empty landscape, exhibiting a cover-like combat animation.
The legitimacy of the videos has apparently been questioned. Of course there are a lot of shots, and faking motion and code running at the same time is a lot of work for a web prank.But it’s still a bug, and unless Rockstar makes a comment (which we’ve reached out to and will update when we hear back), we won’t Know This is true until we can match what is shown here with what will eventually appear Grand Theft Auto VI.
if it Yes Real, then holy shit. Given the state of the game and the number of shots, this will be one of the biggest games of all time, right there Half-Life 2. However, so far it looks legit: not only like the ex-small house giant Jason Schreier says Rockstar has a connection Confirmed with them, Rockstar employee Seems to like tweets related to apparent hacking. But the craziest part?
Hackers are now trying to strike a deal with Rockstar, but we don’t know what kind. Stop distributing more material? Make sure the whistleblower isn’t prosecuted? Regardless, this is definitely one of the most unprecedented leaks in all of video game history.
Earlier this year, Bloomberg also reported Grand Theft Auto will try to become more “culturally sensitive”, A more subtle tonal change has become apparent on the re-release Grand Theft Auto V. Recent matches see Rockstar removes some transphobic content It has been criticized by some fans before.
While things are moving fast on the hacking side and rumors are swirling about a potential scam involving the sale of source code, fans are busy trying to figure out what’s visible in the footage that’s already there. There are already theories about who will play the new protagonist.
