The hacker of GTA VI would have sold the source code of GTA V before being arrested

The buyer would be trying to resell it right now.

Beyond the leak of GTA VI videos in pre-alpha state, almost a hundred clipsthe biggest danger of the computer attack that Rockstar suffered was the total or partial theft of the source code of GTA V. As far as is known, the hacker responsible for the theft would have gotten hold of this information and claims to have sold it before his arrest from last weekend.

Is about a british teenager suspected of belonging to the hacker group known as Lapsus$. He is accused of both the attack on Rockstar and another recent attack on Uber, although in his first hearing with the judge the suspect pleaded not guilty. Earlier this year he was also implicated in attacks on Microsoft and Ubisoft.

The source code of one of the most successful games in history

The administrator of the GTA Telegram group through which the hacker communicated, who called himself “Teapot”, assures that the day after the leak of the GTA VI videos, when he shared his interest in selling the GTA V source code, he found a buyer in that same group. That buyer shared a new image of the game code as proof and I would be trying to resell it right now.

In a capture of this group shared through Reddit, the administrator assures that “it is the only group in which the leaker spoke and used it to sell the source code of GTA V 5”, adding that “the leaker made sure to sell it before being arrested.”

While it remains to be seen if this massive attack on Rockstar has any criminal consequence for the hacker, at Rockstar they officially communicated a few days ago that this leak will not alter the game’s development plans. We will have to keep waiting to see GTA VI officially. According to the latest reports, the game could have its expected launch date for 2024 or 2025although we do not know if the feedback received after the leak of the game will modify the company’s plans.
