Rockster confirms GTA VI leak

The leak shows GTA VI having a female protagonist which is an interesting development in itself.

Rockstar confirmed Monday morning that it has suffered a “network intrusion” where “confidential information… including early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto” was illegally obtained by a third party. The admission seemingly confirms the veracity of a host of leaked Grand Theft Auto VI videos that hit the Internet over the weekend.

Rockstar responded to the leak Sunday by almost immediately issuing DMCA requests against multiple YouTube videos and tweets that shared portions of the footage. GTAForums, where the leaked footage was originally linked, has removed those links but kept the original post otherwise intact. The forum is allowing discussion of the leaks while barring “media or links to leaked copyrighted material.”
