Following the extensive GTA 6 leaks, the leak’s source is reportedly attempting to negotiate with Rockstar Games.
If you missed it, GTA 6 was recently the target of significant leaks that might have given out upcoming characters, vehicles, and one significant returning area.
Even if the holding firm Take-Two Interactive has begun to DMCA’s already-existing films, a lot of it has already been disseminated thanks to the original leaker.
It appears that the same leaker is now trying to get in touch with Rockstar Games directly with the intention of “negotiating a deal.”
Over 90 Gameplay Videos Leak Online
The issue started when a user going by the handle teapotuberhacker uploaded a ZIP file to GTAForums.com with over 90 videos of GTA 6 preview build gameplay.
“Hello, here are 90 clips from Grand Theft Auto 6.” Before providing contact information at the end of the post, I said, “It’s [sic] feasible I could leak additional data soon, GTA 5 and 6 source code and assets, GTA 6 testing build.”
The gameplay videos appear to confirm prior leaks, such as the presence of a female protagonist among other things, even though neither Rockstar nor Take-Two has officially acknowledged them.
GTA 6 Hacker Shares More Info to Verify Leaks
Many GTA 6 forum users continued to doubt the leak, which prompted the hacker to disclose more and more details to prove it was real.
Notably, the hacker provided numerous screenshots of GTA 5 and GTA 6’s source code.
Last but not least, the hacker published more images and videos of apparently in-progress footage that featured incomplete textures and models.
The scenes in these short movies include the protagonists, a male and female, robbing a diner, the protagonist conversing with NPCs, and the protagonist touring a strip club.

GTA 6 Hacker Looking to Contact Rockstar
Take-Two Interactive started to issue DMCA takedowns to the released footage once the leak gained popularity online.
Teapotuberhacker also added the following to their initial forum post: “Ok so this has gone unexpectedly viral, woke up to 3000 Telegram DM’s. If you’re trying to get in touch with me as a Rockstar or Take2 employee… I’ll attempt to read through each response shortly because I’m trying to negotiate a deal.
A hacker was approached by someone posing as a Rockstar or Take-Two employee, according to Freelance Writer Tom Henderson on Twitter.
The hacker reiterated throughout their communication that they “had the GTA 5 and GTA 6” source code and assets and that they were seeking an agreement to stop further leaks.
The hacker instructed the imposter to have “your IT guys check the d*mn logs” when asked for proof.
Finally, according to another chat, the hacker will sell the GTA 5 source code and assets and will reject any bid that is less than $5,000. Additionally, they stated that GTA 6’s source code is “not available for purchase at this time.”
Now, it appears It seems that those who are interested have started making fraudulent blockchain transactions in order to get their hands on GTA 5’s source code.
Tom Henderson and videotech_ both claimed on Twitter that someone trying to purchase the source code “lost $100K owing to impersonating the hacker’s name.”
Despite numerous parties making proposals, it appears that no one has yet formally agreed to a deal with the hacker to get the source code as of the time of writing.
