Grand Theft Auto VI leaks
Regarding the leak, on early Sunday morning videos began appearing online claiming to feature footage from Grand Theft Auto VI.
A hacker who goes by teapotuberhacker uploaded 90 videos to the GTA Forums and from there the footage spread to YouTube and social media sites.
The hacker said he was able to access the test build footage by hacking a Rockstar employee’s Slack account.
Worth a mention is that the footage is considered “rough” which obviously means not finished as the footage uses placeholders and the game is probably still years away.
