- The first alleged footage of the next Grand Theft Auto game has leaked online, with more than 90 videos showcasing its engine, gameplay and more from early development.
- A historical leak gives a glimpse into the development of GTA 6, confirming earlier reports about the series’ first female protagonist and a Vice City location.
The next entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise remains enigmatic, and shortly after Confirmation from Rockstar Games, we know almost nothing about the project. Unofficially known as GTA 6, the game will be the first mainstream game since 2013’s GTA V, which has sold a record-breaking 170 million to date.
We may be witnessing our first GTA 6 leak, a historical media dump hitting the web featuring hours of pre-launch footage. Now there are more than 90 videos circulating from the project, as reported PC Gamershowing off its engine, planned settings, and early iterations of the game.
The leaked images closely match the plans reported by Bloomberg in July the game’s first female protagonist as part of a criminal duo. Set to take inspiration from the popular Bonnie and Clyde, the narrative also reportedly aims to retain the franchise’s satirical themes while developing a more inclusive tone.
Alleged GTA 6 footage comes via GTA Forums user “tepotuberhacker” and shows various fragments of its open world as early development. The build also hints at the Vice-Morning setting, offering a revival of the Miami-inspired locale from 2002’s GTA Vice City.
The 90+ videos also provide an extensive look at the ubiquitous sandbox steals, NPC interactions, vehicles, and more. The footage appears to be from buildings at least a few years old, suggesting that development has continued in tandem with GTA V content updates in recent years.
This is a historic leak from a famously wordy developer, providing our first look at one of the most anticipated titles of this decade. Rockstar Games has a parent company, Take-Two Interactive High hopes for GTA 6CEO Strauss Zelnick said it will “set the creative benchmark for series, our industry and all of entertainment.”
