After a hacker broke into Rockstar Games’ systems and leaked 90 gameplay videos on Reddit, the gaming community was in an uproar. Rockstar Games tweeted that they had been hacked and were communicating with law enforcement about the incident. A 17-year-old boy was arrested in London on suspicion of involvement in the hack.

He allegedly attempted to hack into Uber’s systems before. Speculation has been circulating on social media that the hacker who stole the data from Grand Theft Auto 6 was paid 2.2 Bitcoins, or about $100,000.

The hacker who leaked the source code for Grand Theft Auto 6 was paid 2.2 Bitcoins.

The Bitcoin wallet address “Bc1q5ctpkgan2npcwwsq9esvuq2fzne3m6qd8he7c5” was checked by Bitcoin Explorer Mempool Space and found to be a forgery. According to the website, the aforementioned wallet address is linked to scams and currently holds $96,690 from 6 separate transactions.

Many more fake wallet addresses were created by fraudsters who wanted to cash in on the rumors. They posed as the hacker, convincing unsuspecting players to send Bitcoin in exchange for the game’s source code.

In conclusion, the hacker who leaked the Grand Theft Auto 6 source code did not receive 2.2 Bitcoins or $100,000. Like the rest of the GTA 6 rumours floating around, this one is entirely made up.
