The teenager suspected of hacking GTA 6 is a repeat offender and is accused of several charges

The young man was arrested by London police last week in an operation against cyber attacks.

Grand Theft Auto VI

This month of September has established Grand Theft Auto VI as the protagonist, but not for the reasons that we wanted or, of course, for those who wanted in RockstarGames. On Sunday the 18th, the internet was filled with multiple screenshots and videos of the game’s development in a leak that, hours later, the studio confirmed was real.

On Thursday, September 22, London police arrested a suspect of being responsible for the Rockstar Games hack: a 17-year-old who is associated with a group of hackers (LAP$US) that has already stolen information from other large companies such as Uber and has been charged in connection with this investigation.

The young man remains in police custody.“City of London Police arrested a 17-year-old in Oxfordshire on Thursday 22nd September on suspicion of hacking, as part of the investigation supported by the National Crime Agency (NCA) Police Cyber ​​Attack Unit. Has been charged in connection with this investigation and remains in police custodysaid Inspector Michael O’Sullivan.

After being summoned on September 24 at Highbury Corner Juvenile Court, the suspect he has been indicted on several counts: two for improper computer use and two in relation to an alleged violation of bail conditions.

The BBC points out that he was also arrested in MarchIn relation to this, the BBC reported in March 2022 that a 16-year-old hacker had been arrested and released on bail, for which everything indicates that he is a repeat offender and the measures carried out at the time had no effect. As they point out from Eurogamer, the father said at the time that they would try to keep the young man away from the computers.

Rockstar does not change its plans

After what happened with Rockstar, many consider that we have attended one of the biggest leaks in video game history, although from the study they assured through a statement that no interruption in the development of Grand Theft Auto VI is expected. Although they regret the heavy blow, their work will continue as planned and no long-term negative effects are expected for the project.

If you want to delve deeper into the subject, we recommend reading the article where Toni Piedrabuena explains the delicate consequences for Rockstar as a result of the GTA VI leak, although, if what interests you is what you can expect from its playable proposal and its world , Alejandro Pascual offers you five things he would like to see and three he wouldn’t in the new blockbuster of the saga.
