“We recently experienced a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party gained unauthorized access to confidential information, including early development footage of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto, and downloaded it from our systems,” the statement said. says.
“It is with great disappointment to share with you the details of our next game in this way. We remain as committed as ever to delivering, that truly exceed your expectations.
“I’ll update again soon. Of course, when I’m ready for this next game, I’ll introduce it properly. Thank you for your continued support in this situation.”
Nearly 100 different videos of the game were shared online, anonymously showing robberies, shootings, fully voiced dialogue, and more. The footage pretty much confirms rumors that GTA 6 will feature male and female protagonists and a Vice City setting.
Rockstar promised more information soon, but as with the final launch, GTA 6 will only appear when it’s ready, so we’re not sure when the developer will do a full reveal of the game. Of course, it was only announced this year, but it’s been almost a decade since GTA 5 was released, so fans are eager for more.
