Rockstar hacked again: GTA 5 codes leaked online

Rockstar Games faces a major cybersecurity issue with the leak of GTA 5's source codes and hints about upcoming games.

Rockstar hacked again: GTA 5 codes leaked online

Rockstar Games, renowned for the Grand Theft Auto series, is currently grappling with a significant security breach. This incident follows recent leaks about the much-awaited GTA 6. The breach is particularly severe as it involves the leak of GTA 5's entire source code, and potentially more.

Among the leaked information is a tantalizing hint: a file named Bully 2. This discovery has rekindled hopes for the sequel to Bully, a game released between Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto 4, known for its unique gameplay and setting. Fans have long awaited a sequel, and this leak suggests that Rockstar Games might have been developing Bully 2 in secrecy.

The leak also includes an early map for GTA 5 and a script, which reveals that GTA 6 was initially codenamed “Project Americas.” This information was partially verified by a screenshot shared by YouTuber SKizzleAXE and a fan named “Agent” who posted leaked code and images of the RAGE engine. However, these posts on X/Twitter have since been removed.

The exact circumstances of this leak remain unclear. There are speculations that the GTA 5 code was leaked via Discord, and rumors suggest that the full code has been privately exchanged since 2022. This timeline matches the initial leak of 10,000 lines of GTA 6 code, hinting at a more extensive security breach.

This situation represents a major setback for Rockstar Games. The leaked code is not only a valuable intellectual property, but it could also lead to technical problems and possible delays in their upcoming projects, including GTA 6.

As of this writing, Rockstar Games has not issued any public statements regarding the leak.
