Biggest Security Breaches, Grand Theft Auto VI
Sunday, data was compromised, one of the biggest gaming data security breaches. According to Rockstar Games – Network Intrusion’s cause was anonymous; however, GTA VI’s “early development footage” were breached.
Teapotuberhacker (User) was the one who uploaded the videos on the GTAForums Site. Adversary said he got data by compromising Rockstar’s insides on the Slack (Messaging App). After the invasion and accessing the data, the adversary invited executives to talk about negotiation just to stop sharing the assets further.

- Testing Builds
This could damage the company’s operations even more than other reasons could do. Moderators have revoked original content; however, it’s already over social media platforms in a wide range. Whereas Rockstar Games continuously issued takedown orders for erasing the video content from YouTube and Twitter asap.
In the footage, you can see animation tests, level layouts, and some gameplay demonstrations. Also, there has been a rumor that the game will feature the first female protagonist. That means the game would be so exciting to play as the whole scenario seems to be amazing.
In the Breach, it was also confirmed that Miami would be in the game, too, which was settled and already shown in GTA Vice City’s 2002 version.

It was “extremely disappointing to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way”. “Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned, and we remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations,” it added.
The company confirmed that it was working on the game earlier this year, while the release date was going to be 2024/ 2025. Fanclubs speculated data leaks could become the reason for delaying the release date.
