Rockstar owner also says there’s no evidence that any material assets were taken…
In one of the games industry’s most high-profile data leaks, more than an hour of GTA 6 development footage was published online in September by an anonymous user who claimed to have obtained it via an internal Rockstar Slack channel.
At the time, Rockstar said it didn’t anticipate any long-term effect on its development timelines as a result of the incident.
This message was reiterated by Rockstar parent company Take-Two during its second quarter earnings call on Monday.
“With regards to the leak, it was terribly unfortunate, and we take those sorts of incidents very seriously indeed,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick (transcribed by VGC).
“There’s no evidence that any material assets were taken, which is a good thing, and certainly the leak won’t have any influence on development or anything of the sort, but it is terribly disappointing and causes us to be ever more vigilant on matters relating to cybersecurity.”
