Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI) Latest Leak
Rockstar confirmed that GTA 6 was in development at the start of 2022. However, we have since seen actual gameplay footage from the open-world sequel to GTA 5 due to a large leak.
GTA 6 is the subject of several rumors and speculations, but there's no official word on it.
Rockstar has confirmed that the game is "well underway," but there hasn't been any game footage released pictures published, or information about how GTA 5 will operate given. We also know that it will be a few years before it sees a full release. However, thanks to a leaked image that Rockstar has verified as genuine, we've got a decent picture of the GTA 6 setting, characters, and weapons.

Even though anything in the leaked footage could change, we can still draw confident conclusions about GTA 6 from it. Rockstar has confirmed that the footage is real, and considering the game's release date is likely to be 2024, this gives us a good idea of its current state and direction.
A crucial component to the leaks is that Rockstar appears to be returning us back to Vice City. Although many people were anticipating an entirely different city, coming back to a location where we last saw it in its prime during the '80s provides the developers with a fantastic chance to illustrate what has happened to characters since 2006.
On Sunday, a gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI was leaked online, making it one of the most extensive video game leaks in history. It's the long-awaited sequel to Grand Theft Auto V, which has sold 169 million copies and generated more than $6 billion in revenue since its initial 2013 release.
On Monday, Developer Rockstar issued a statement saying that its "network was intruded on by an unauthorized third party who illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information." This data included early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto.
The leak shouldn't disrupt its live game services or have any long-term effect on the development of its ongoing projects, the company noted.
Though no one outside of the development team has seen it, Rockstar noted back in February that a sequel to Grand Theft Auto VI was in production. According to reports, the game is still at least two years from completion.
It appears that the leaked videos of GTA 6 were posted by a user on GTAforums. The user posted almost 100 videos of the game, which were later removed by moderators. Copies of the videos that were posted to Twitter were also removed in response to copyright reports.
The gameplay trailers for Grand Theft Auto games usually show unfinished elements, like placeholder textures and character models that aren't complete yet. They're also usually pretty short. One of the videos is a little longer and features a male and female character robbing a diner. Other clips feature a woman visiting a strip club; one clip shows a poolside conversation. This is all par for the course in GTA games since they all have missions with similar themes.
The inclusion of a female playable character seems to fall in line with what Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier uncovered about Grand Theft Auto VI. Other reported details, like the game's setting taking place in the fictional Vice City (as seen before in 2002's GTA Vice City), appear to be confirmed through the leaked footage.
Early leaks of unpolished footage for an upcoming gaming release didn't sit well with all gamers, but it's important to remember that games in early development usually look this way. Reportedly, Rockstar has been working on Grand Theft Auto VI since 2014. RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3080 cards imply that the build can't be older than two years. This makes sense considering the game is still years away from release video games at this stage rarely look close to finished products.
