From CNET: Gameplay footage of Grand Theft Auto VI was posted online on Sunday in what amounts to one of the biggest video game leaks in history. It's the highly anticipated sequel to Grand Theft Auto V, which is one of the most successful games in history, selling 169 million copies and generating over $6 billion in revenue since its initial 2013 release.
Developer Rockstar acknowledged on Monday that it "suffered a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information" that included early development footage for the next Grand Theft Auto.
"We are extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way," the studio wrote in a tweet. "Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned and we remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations."
The leak shouldn't disrupt its live game services or have any long-term effect on development of its ongoing projects, it noted.
