GTA 6 Game Details

Grand Theft Auto VI is an upcoming action-adventure game in development by Rockstar Games. It is due to be the eighth main Grand Theft Auto game, following Grand Theft Auto V (2013), and the sixteenth entry overall. Set within the fictional open world state of Leonida, based on Florida, and its Miami-inspired Vice City, the story is intended to follow criminal duo Lucia and her partner.

Following years of speculation and leaks, Rockstar confirmed in February 2022 that the game was in development. Footage from unfinished versions was leaked online that September in what journalists described as one of the biggest leaks in the history of the video game industry. The game was formally revealed in December 2023, and is scheduled to be released in 2025 for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Following Grand Theft Auto Vs 2013 release, Rockstar North then-president Leslie Benzies said the company had “some ideas” for the series’ next entry. In 2018, The Know reported the game, code-named Project Americas, would be set primarily in Vice City and partly in South America with a female protagonist. In 2020, Kotakus Jason Schreier reported the game was “early in development” as “a moderately sized release” that would expand over time, to avoid the developer crunch of its predecessors. In 2021, journalist Tom Henderson claimed the game’s map could evolve akin to Fortnite Battle Royale. Writing for Bloomberg News in 2022, Schreier reported the game entered development in 2014 and would feature two protagonists influenced by Bonnie and Clyde, including a Latina woman, and claimed the developers were cautiously subverting the series’ trend of joking about marginalised groups.

The game became highly anticipated in the years before its announcement, and journalists noted some fans had become frustrated by Rockstar Games’s continued silence, particularly after they announced a re-release of Grand Theft Auto V in 2020. An individual referencing the game received media attention for interrupting several live stage and television shows. On 4 February 2022, Rockstar confirmed development was “well underway”. In July, Rockstar announced Red Dead Online would not receive more major updates as development resources were withdrawn to focus on the upcoming game; industry sources stated Rockstar reallocated resources after planned remasters of Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and Red Dead Redemption (2010) were paused due to the backlash received by Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (2021).

In November 2023, Rockstar president Sam Houser announced the game’s first trailer would be released in early December to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary. Journalists reported the announcement on social media platform X became its most-liked gaming-related post within five hours, surpassing the record set by two previous posts about the game; this was surpassed by Rockstar’s 1 December post announcing the trailer’s release date of 5 December, receiving over 1.8 million likes within 24 hours. Other developers imitated the announcement’s formatting to promote their own trailers. Prompted by leaks, Rockstar published the trailer a day early, formally revealing the title, protagonists, setting, and release window of 2025 for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. The trailer featured Tom Petty’s “Love Is a Long Road”.

On 18 September 2022, 90 videos showing 50 minutes of work-in-progress game footage were published on GTAForums by a user known as “teapotuberhacker”. Schreier confirmed with sources at Rockstar that the footage was genuine, and The Guardian reported it was from several stages of development, with some videos about a year old. The footage reveals a modern-day Vice City setting, contains animation tests, gameplay tests, level layouts, and conversations between characters, and depicts the player characters, Jason and Lucia, entering a strip club and robbing a diner. The hacker claimed to be behind the Uber security breach from the earlier week. They claimed to have downloaded the files directly from Rockstar’s internal Slack groups, and they possessed source code, assets, and internal builds of both the new game and Grand Theft Auto V, which they threatened to publish.

Take-Two responded by submitting takedowns of videos showing or discussing the leaks hosted on YouTube under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and contacted moderators of GTAForums and Reddit to remove access. The hacker wrote they were “looking to negotiate a deal” with Rockstar or Take-Two. Several journalists described the event as one of the biggest leaks in video game history; Schreier called it “a nightmare for Rockstar Games” which could limit remote work flexibility for employees. Jefferies analyst Andrew Uerkwitz called it a “PR disaster” that could potentially delay the game and diminish staff morale, but was unlikely to impact reception or sales. The Guardian noted the leaked footage was being widely criticised “by ill-informed users” due to its quality, despite not being representative of the final product. Some users erroneously claimed graphics and art assets are finalised early in game development. In solidarity, several industry developers shared work-in-progress footage of their games and some, including Cliff Bleszinski, Neil Druckmann, Rami Ismail, and Alanah Pearce, offered their sympathies to Rockstar.

On 19 September, Rockstar confirmed the leak to be a “network intrusion” and lamented how the game was first demonstrated but did not anticipate long-term effects on development. Rockstar disabled comments and replies on their social media accounts in the days following the leak. Take-Two added that steps had been taken “to isolate and contain this incident”. The company’s share price dropped by more than six per cent in pre-market trading that day, but recovered during regular trading hours following Take-Two’s statement. Uber acknowledged the potential links to their security breach and noted they were working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Department of Justice. They believed the hacker was affiliated with the group Lapsus$, which is thought to have breached companies such as Microsoft, Nvidia, and Samsung over the preceding year. In November, Zelnick said no material assets appeared to have been taken and the incident caused the companies to become more vigilant with cybersecurity. In February 2023, he reiterated the leak had impacted staff emotionally but business remained unaffected.

A 17-year-old boy from Oxfordshire—claimed to be “teapotuberhacker”—was arrested by City of London Police on 22 September as part of an investigation supported by the National Cyber Crime Unit with the assistance of American federal law enforcement officials. The suspect is a key member of Lapsus$ who, then aged 16, was among seven arrested in March 2022 under suspicion of hacking several other companies, accumulating £10.6 million. Appearing before the Highbury Corner Youth Court in September, he pleaded guilty to two counts of breach of bail conditions and not guilty to two counts of computer misuse, denying the prosecutor’s claims that he used a mobile phone he “didn’t have permission to have” to hack and ransom companies. The case was referred to a higher court while the boy was remanded to a youth detention centre. In July and August 2023, he stood trial at Southwark Crown Court for twelve offences, including six counts of computer misuse, three of blackmail, and two of fraud. Prosecutors alleged he threatened to release the source code in a message to all Rockstar staff on Slack, and he targeted other companies like BT Group, Nvidia, Revolut, and Uber. He was deemed unfit to stand trial; instead of assessing his guilt, a jury determined that he had committed the acts, and he is set to be sentenced by a judge.
