'Grand Theft Auto 5' Source Code "Almost Certainly" Stolen In Rockstar Cyber Attack

'Grand Theft Auto 5' Source Code "Almost Certainly" Stolen In Rockstar Cyber Attack

Parts of Grand Theft Auto V's source code may have been posted online along with the leaked GTA VI footage.

The plot thickens. Just a few days ago, Rockstar Games was the victim of a major cyber attack. During this, Grand Theft Auto VI development footage was stolen and leaked online, seemingly confirming the rumoured female protagonist and Vice City setting. Since then, fans have been using the footage to map Vice City, whilst Rockstar Games continue fighting the leak with DMCA takedowns. It now appears that the source code for GTA V may also have been taken.

As reported by Insider Gaming, sources are claiming that GTA V’s source code would’ve been “almost certainly” stolen. Whilst it’s been suggested that both the GTA V and GTA VI source codes were targeted, Insider Gaming confirmed that they have “only been able to see evidence that the GTA V source code, or at least significant parts of it, [were] compromised.”

Some source code files were leaked online along with the 90 gameplay development clips and screenshotted images. It’s not something Rockstar have commented on specifically, and only they can verify, but judging by the statement they previously released, it doesn’t seem to have impacted their projects.

As a reminder, Rockstar wrote, “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.” Investigations into who was behind the hack remain ongoing.
