Rockstar Games Says it will Continue Working on GTA VI as Planned Despite the Leak – Effinate Games


The latest entry in the series, GTA V, came out about a decade ago. It was about time we got a new post. There were already rumors of GTA VI in development, but nothing from the developer’s end. But this year in February, Rockstar finally confirmed that they are working on the next iteration of the game.

Although we don’t know anything official, some leaks claimed to tell a little about what to expect from GTA VI. Apart from a few leaks, nothing was solid. Until yesterday, a GTA forms user named teapotuberhacker linked 90+ gameplay videos that he claimed were GTA VI.

The gameplay looked like a very early build for the game as it wasn’t great graphically. However, this can be expected from an early construction. But it looked seriously legit. The buildings, the physics, and even the rumored female protagonist made it really hard to believe that it wasn’t the next GTA. While many came out and questioned the credibility of the leak, it was confirmed that the leaks are legit.

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier also confirmed the news. But now, even Rockstar Games has admitted that the leaked video was legit. Since then, the leaked videos have been removed from the internet. The location of the leaker has also reportedly been compromised. Rockstar also wrote one Note on Twitter confirming the leak.

Rockstar Claim Development will not be affected by the leak

Many expected Rockstar to stop production and delay the development of the game. But Rockstar says nothing like that will happen and they will continue development as planned.

They have stated:

'We are extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way. Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned and we remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations.'

This is good news for anyone who was worried about the future of GTA VI. Fortunately, development will continue and we will have an update on the game soon.

Earlier leaks suggested that GTA VI will feature two protagonists, a brother and a sister. The game will reportedly take us back to several cities including Vice city, Los Santos and others. Several player-based in-game decisions will affect Grand Theft Auto 6’s ending. But keep in mind that Rockstar has not released any information about the game’s location. You can find out more about the game here.

We hope we see something from Rockstar soon. Until then, stay tuned for further news on this situation.
