User enabled GTA Forumwho claims he was also behind a recent Uber hackHe has just posted nearly 100 videos online claiming to show material from Rockstar’s development Grand Theft Auto VI, which are currently circulating on almost every social media platform.
Matching multiple with What Bloomberg reported earlier this year-in that the game will interact with the woman and will be set in Vice City– movies are very much in development, with unfinished textures and patterns all over the placeand code that is played back in real time on many of them. The leak is currently accepting requests, asking people what else they would like to see in more videos.
In one, white playable male character meets racist NPC by the pooland as the conversation goes on, you can see the code required for the interaction unfolding as the game action unfolds. In another, a female character – I only put it this way because it would be the first series –is exploring one of the infamous strip clubs on the show.
There is also a movie showing “mechanic for shooting at passengers“, Illustrated by the example of a player taking an AK-47 to a few chasing police cars, and another he presents car interior modeling.
One of the more complete movies Uploaded shows that the two characters are working together to rob a restaurant, keeping customers at gunpoint before the police arrive. Others are in worse shape and contain little more than a stripped surrogate character moving across an empty landscape, recreating combat animations such as hiding behind cover.
The legitimacy of these films is of course questioned. There is certainly a lot of footage, and faking both the action and the code running at the same time would be a lot of work for the internet prank. But it’s still a leak and until Rockstar comments (we got in touch and update if we get a reply) we won’t know this is true until we can match what is shown here with what finally comes up GTA VI.
If it is real, that’s holy shit. Considering the status of the game and the amount of footage, this would be one of the biggest ever, right there with Half-life 2. So far, however, it seems legal: reporters are not the only onesmy box monster Jason Schreier says Rockstar is contacting Rockstar employees have confirmed this information seem to like tweets related to the visible break-in. But the wildest part?
The hacker is now trying to make a deal with Rockstar, though we don’t know what kind. Stop distributing more material? To make sure the leak doesn’t get sued? In any case, this is by far one of the most unprecedented leaks in all video game history.
Earlier this year, Bloomberg also announced that the next GTA would try to be more “culturally sensitive”, a subtler tonal shift that has already become apparent in the reissue GTA V. The recent game saw Rockstar removes some transphobic content which were previously criticized by some fans.
While things are going fast on the hacker front and rumors of potential scams around selling the source code are circulating, fans are busy trying to figure out what’s showing in the video that’s already there. Already there are theories about who is playing the new lead.
