The internet is abuzz with news of the huge GTA 6 leak. The GTA 6 hacker is kind of blackmailing the firm and is currently trying to negotiate a deal with Rockstar Games and its parent firm, Take-Two Interactive, by making use of their access to the GTA 6 source code. 

GTA 6 hacker claims to negotiate a deal for source code

A GTAForum user “TeapotUberHacker posted 90 footage and snippets from GTA 6 publically with a statement, “It’s possible that I may soon disclose further information, including GTA 5 and 6 source code, assets, and a testing build. It included gameplay clips and an affirmation that Jason and Lucia will be the two main characters of GTA 6.

Now, the most recent information to appear online is the outcome of a conversation between a Twitter user named John Hey and the Tea Pot, the hacker of GTA 6 who uses the handle on Telegram.

Later, the leaker claimed to have access to further information and files, including the highly confidential source codes for both GTA 5 and GTA 6, additional in-game components, and the testing version of the next game. The leaker did not specify whether or not they would make this information public, but when his post and its contents gained notoriety, he issued a new statement. The leaker added the following statement to his post on GTA Forums:

Ok so this has gone unexpectedly viral, woke up to 3000 Telegram DM’s If you are a employee of Rockstar or Take2 and your trying to contact me. Send me a message containing 22559219889638875756 on telegram Or you can email me at teapotuberhacker@protonmail.com **from your corporate email address** I will try to read all these reply soon – i am looking to negotiate a deal.”

Additionally, a screenshot from the hacker’s Telegram message purporting to be the sale of the GTA 5 source code was shared on Twitter by Ben. The hacker claimed that “all GTA 5 source code and files are available along with the GTA 6 documents.”

Rockstar hasn’t officially remarked on this leak, however, it seems they have started taking done the leaked video clips.
