This could be among the most significant leaks in the history of video games.
The world of video games is still in turmoil after 90 videos leaked that showed prebuilt gameplay from one of the top popular games ever, Grand Theft Auto 6. However, the leaks may not be finished as the leaker claims they’ve got more assets to be shared unless Rockstar Games can strike an agreement with them in the near future.
A user who was anonymous on the GTA Forums website. GTA Forums website dropped a major blow to the GTA Forums community which included gameplay that showed the latest cars, characters, and even the game’s new location. This was a huge leak that revealed a plethora of previously undiscovered information, particularly following the lack of radio communication which fans had to live within the lead-up to the game’s next installment.
The leaker didn’t anticipate their post would go viral across social media platforms like Twitter or Reddit. With so much information available to the public it was inevitable that the leak would draw attention from not just the fans but Rockstar too. The company has confirmed the Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier that the leaks were true in addition, Take2 has already started taking off videos from YouTube and other platforms.

The leaker did not say whether or not they’d consider sharing this information at the time, but after his blog post and its contents were shared on social media, they made another announcement.
The leaker offered a method to reach them and claimed the company was “looking to negotiate a deal” in the event that an employee at Rockstar or Take2 was looking to prevent the next round of leaks. This could be a method for the person to stay clear of any legal consequences from the company, however, there’s been no news about a deal as of yet.
