Share this storyGTA V was released almost nine years ago. Image: RockstarFootage of Grand Theft Auto VI, Rockstar’s next entry in its open-world franchise, has leaked online. PC Gamer reports that a user on the GTA Forums has posted a 3GB file full of 90 videos of GTA VI footage. It’s not exactly clear how the footage was obtained, but the “teapotuberhacker” poster claims to be behind the unrelated Uber hack late last week, and says they may “leak more data soon” including GTA V and GTA VI source code, assets, and testing builds.
The massive leak lines up with some earlier reporting on GTA VI, showing a female playable character in some clips. Bloomberg reported earlier this year that GTA VI would include a female protagonist influenced by Bonnie and Clyde. Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier says he has verified the leak is real through sources at Rockstar Games.
The leaked videos are currently being posted to YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, and many gaming forums online. In one video posted to YouTube, a playable female character named Lucia is seen robbing a restaurant and taking hostages. There is plenty of placeholder text showing this is clearly unfinished gameplay, and you can visibly see where the game engine is detecting objects in the scene.
Another clip shows a playable character on the “Vice City Metro” train, which lines up with reports that the game is set in a fictionalized version of Miami much like 2002’s GTA: Vice City. A separate clip includes a poolside conversation that feels similar to the NPC conversations in Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2.
