Rockstar Games has officially responded to the massive Grand Theft Auto VI leak from this weekend, confirming the leak is real as well as “illegal” by its very nature.
“We recently suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information from our systems, including early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto,” Rockstar said in a statement.
Despite the massive amount of media and data leaked for the game, the developer noted they do not foresee any delays on Grand Theft Auto VI.
“At this time, we do not anticipate any disruption to our live game services nor any long-term effect on the development of our ongoing projects,” the company said.
The company said they are “extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way” but committed to whatever their original timeframe for release on the title was, saying work “will continue as planned.”
Rockstar added, “We remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations. We will update everyone again soon and, of course, will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready. We want to thank everyone for their ongoing support through this situation.”
