A GTAForums user using by the handle “teapotuberhacker” uploaded 90 videos from a Grand Theft Auto 6 beta on September 19. Data from some other recent GTA 6 leak, in addition to a previous one, revealed that the forthcoming open world game would have two protagonists—a man and a woman—and would be situated in and around Vice City, and screenshots and excerpts from these films have since circulated online, corroborating these claims.
Rockstar has verified the videos’ authenticity. The development video for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto game was among the sensitive files that were illegally obtained from our systems by an unknown third party. Take-Two, the video game’s publisher, has been invoking copyright laws to have the movies removed from any major website where they may be hosted.

In one clip, a player named Lucia teams up with another named Jason to loot a waffle shop while holding the customers hostage. All of this is reminiscent of the heists in Red Dead Redemption 2, complete with a “Time Until Cops Dispatched” meter. We hear some classic Grand Theft Auto lingo from a chat between a male character and his two redneck friends while lounging by the pool.
Oh yeah, he’s dead, is he? Just like there’s a country called Finland.
GTA 6 has reportedly been in production since 2014 under the codename “Project Americas,” according to a previous leak. Some of these files show a version operating on a PlayStation 4 dev kit, and their names contain the term “Americas,” suggesting that they are quite old. PC Gamer was told by an anonymous insider familiar with the development of GTA 6 that the majority of the films were likely included with bug reports from QA testers.
According to reports, whoever stole the data for Grand Theft Auto 6 also hacked ridesharing service Uber.
