Fans have eagerly anticipated the newest installment in the Grand Theft Auto series for quite some time. With Grand Theft Auto V has been out for nearly a decade, fans have wondered when the next installment will be released. A GTAForums member going under the handle “teapotuberhacker” has recently shared roughly 90 gameplay videos of GTA VI. Many parts of the videos are incomplete, especially the character models and textures, in contrast to the official teaser trailers.
The female protagonists in some of these videos engage in heists at diners, club visits, and poolside chats. The trailers have also hinted that Vice City will serve as the game's setting. The person responsible for the leak has also claimed responsibility for the previous Uber breach and explained that they gained access to a Rockstar employee's Slack account to obtain the recordings.
Even though it has been speculated that the leaked footage is from an older build, The Verge has stated that the game is indeed running on RTX 3060Ti and RTX 3080, suggesting that the shape is no more than two years old. More importantly, a Bloomberg reporter has verified with Rockstar insiders that the film is genuine.
When Rockstar renamed the GTA V and GTA V Online credits page from “Credits” to “Thank You” earlier this month, fans worried that the developer was winding down work on GTA V in favor of the next installment in the series. Expectedly, Rockstar has started requesting that websites like YouTube remove gameplay footage of GTA VI.
