According to The Verge, the user, “teapotuberhacker”, who posted the gameplay, also claimed that they carried out an attack on Uber last week, but their actual involvement is still unclear.

In a statement shared on Twitter, Rockstar said, “We recently experienced a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our systems, including early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto.”

“We are extremely disappointed that all the details of our next game are being shared with all of you in this way. Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game continues as planned and we remain as committed as ever to providing you, our players, a experience that truly exceeds your expectations,” she added.

Currently there are few details about how the “network intrusion” took place, but Rockstar says it will “update everyone again soon”.

According to Tech Crunch, the trove of data, which PCGamer discovered via a GTAForums post by the alleged hacker himself, includes some 90 videos of clips from the game, with debugging code and interfaces supporting the truth of the claims.

Several clips from the leak show male and female protagonists, which fits with other reports of what to expect in the upcoming game. They also show gameplay that takes place in a Miami analog fictional city; again matching early reports of what ‘GTA 6’ will bring to the franchise.

Reportedly, “GTA 6” has been in development since 2014, so it’s reasonable to expect development snapshots of various builds to be over the years.

According to Tech Crunch, earlier this month, Rockstar rolled out the credits of “GTA 5” and “GTA 5 Online” on its website, under the title “Thank You,” which many took as a sign of active development on the title.
