Rockstar Games has issued an official response to this weekend's colossal Grand Theft Auto VI leak, the result of what it calls a “network intrusion”, leading to assets being accessed and spilled onto GTA Forums.
"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 writes in a statement posted to Twitter (via GameSpot).
“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 added, stating that it's "extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way."
Rockstar continued: “Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto will continue as planned and 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."
Yesterday's GTA 6 leak included details of the game being set in Vice City, with a heist story inspired by Bonnie and Clyde. Since the emergence of the leak, Rockstar parent company Take-Two has issued DMCA requests to have the footage removed from the web, while the leak has also been scrubbed from GTA Forums.
