In mid-September, there was a bang in the gaming world when a cybercriminal hacked Rockstar Games and stole videos of an early version of GTA 6 and then published them on the internet.
Rockstar Games has now confirmed the GTA 6 leak and is “extremely disappointed”. There should be no doubt that parent company Take-Two and Rockstar will be badly affected by this incident. We consider an intentionally staged measure to generate attention to be unlikely.
GTA 6: Probably the biggest leak of the year
Rockstar Games has confirmed the mega leak to GTA 6 and is deeply disappointed. The company also gives an outlook on new information and the official unveiling of the game.
But what does that mean for the release date of the game? Of course, Rockstar has not revealed this yet, but it is possible that this leak and its processing will take time and resources. It wouldn’t be the first time in the industry.
In 2021, for example, CD Projekt Red had problems with a hacker attack that led to the postponement of future content to Cyberpunk 2077 – Comicbook reports.

So far there are indications that GTA 6 will be released in 2024 at the earliest, maybe not until 2025. Given the leak, a release looks closer to 2025 or even more likely, but there’s good news, too.
Rockstar Games wrote in a tweet to the fans that the leak will probably not have any impact on development in the long term and therefore a longer waiting time for the release may not be expected.

So for now, don’t worry about the release being pushed back any further. You have to wait a few more years anyway, the leak won’t change that.
