GTA 6 unreal weather effects accidentally leaked online by developer

An “accidental” leak from a GTA VI developer has fans scrambling in an overhyped cloud of excitement, somewhat laying to rest the concerns over any looming delays.

Last year proved to be an intense time for gamers, especially once Rockstar Games put us out of our misery and dropped the long-anticipated GTA VI trailer. Ever since, however, fans have been left in a perpetual state of excitement and fear, never knowing if the launch will go as planned.

One minute ‘The Fear’ is gripping them so deeply they’re angry, and the next they’re feeling less panicky because they’ve seemingly found confirmation that all is going well. Then the Rockstar controversy hit and delays started to look increasingly likely.

Although the dust has somewhat settled on that industry drama, concerns have remained, leading to quite a bit of ire aimed at Rockstar. Then, all of a sudden, an “accidental” leak happens from the devs themselves, seemingly addressing any fears fans still have; it does seem aptly timed.

The leak came from Rockstar North in the form a screenshot that mentioned "weather dynamic, particularly thunderstorms”, as well as in-game mechanics that see “NPC behaviour and activities” affected by the weather.

Alongside these unreal weather effects, bug fixes for the lead protagonists, in addition to mention of “40 hours” of what fans speculate is story length, have also appeared. Needless to say, the fandom has gone off in spectacular fashion.

Other leaks showing how huge the open world of the title is have also appeared across the internet; all of which helps to soothe that anger that was once aimed at Rockstar. It’ll likely only be a temporary reprieve for the publisher, but these sudden leaks’ timing is rather curious.

By the time GTA VI actually launches, we’ll have expired from all the exhilaration.
