Take-Two says Grand Theft Auto 6 leak ‘won’t have any influence on development’

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.”

As always, never believe these CEO’s. If code was leaked, there will indeed be REQUIRED to rewrite much of the game code for security reasons. It could delay the game by months, years even. Of course Strauss isn’t going to say this and have the stock tank, and it’s particularly convenient because a release date was never announced to begin with, so we’ll never be able to “prove” it caused delays, but yeah. It almost certainly will

Hasn't even been a month and it seems everyone's already forgotten and the hacker is rotting away in prison.

Remember kids, clout does not pay.

Really wish R* would pick up the pace. I assume we’ll still be playing GTA6 on the PlayStation 9 at the snails pace they’re releasing games..

While I do wish to play GTA 6 I'm fully aware that Rockstar are the best developer in the world, and creating a game as large and complex as they do takes a long time.

I remember the original thread and laughing at people who said they had to throw it all away and start over. It was fun.
