After the battery of leaks yesterday regarding one of the most anticipated games of recent years, Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6), Rockstar Games finally has confirmed that everything leaked is real and belongs to his next title. Although this confirmation comes very late, yesterday everything began to be confirmed “unofficially” after the parent company, Take-Two Interactive, start shooting the videos for infringing copyright.

The entire industry was waiting for an official statement from the company, and it is not for less, since it has been classified as the biggest leak in the history of video games. We are talking about leaking what may be the delivery of video games most successful in history. The leak included more than 90 small videos that showed from gameplay, game mechanics, or even information at the developer level. There is also talk of source code leak, and that behind all this is a hacker, who is rumored to be in talks with Rockstar not to leak the information. This would imply being able to clone GTA 6 investing very little money, not to mention implementing future ‘chetos’ in online mode.

For now, all plans remain despite the hacker’s move

The declaration from Rockstar Games is very brief, but at least much of the things that had been leaked are confirmed. The first one is that we are talking about a very early development phase of the game. This implies that everything we have seen can change in the final version, such as mechanics, physics, or graphic quality. As far as development is concerned, despite talk of leaking the source code, the company’s plans continue to move forward.

Finally, who will present the game when it is ready, and that they are disappointed that the community has seen the game in this way. Obviously, without thinking about the workers, only in the companythis is what can happen when launch GTA V four times and you delay the release of the next installment for the simple fact of getting every penny possible taking advantage of the online mode. It is clear that if the game is announced very soon, a large majority of gamers would prefer not to spend any more money in the online world until the release of the next installment. If we have learned anything, it is that secrets cannot be hidden forever in this industry.

Most users have scoffed that this is what happens when you squeeze the current game as if it were a cow. Not to mention the numerous vetoes What have you been doing? to the modding industry on PC. Due to this, and other reasons, the company is not showing great sympathy with the company.
