GTA 6 hacker pleads "not guilty"

The 17-year-old suspected to be behind the Rockstar Games and Uber hacking also admitted to breaching bail conditions.


This just in: the 17-year-old hacker behind the leaked footage of the next Grand Theft Auto game has pled not guilty.

Because he is a minor, we suspect that the law works differently for the GTA 6 leaker.

According to Eurogamer, City of London police revealed that the individual is currently held at a youth detention center after appearing in court.

Here is the full statement:

The 17-year-old who appeared at Highbury Corner Youth Court on 24 September has pleaded guilty to breaching his bail conditions and not guilty to computer misuse. The teenager has been remanded to a youth detention centre.

The gaming industry hasn't stopped talking about the GTA 6 leak from a few weeks ago. It's believed that the hackers got their hands on important information such as the source code for GTA 5, GTA 6, and other intel like Bully 2.

However, Rockstar claims that the "network intrusion" wasn't a huge problem. As per the company's statement, the hack will have "no long-term effect on development" of their current projects.

We're definitely curious to find out what happens to the GTA 6 leaker next.

You can argue that GTA 6 got a ton of free publicity due to the hack as an unintended side effect. Either way, the legal side of things appears to be progressing fast. It's only been less than a week after authorities nabbed the individual behind the leak. The authorities have already charged him with breaching his bail conditions and computer misuse. The former is associated with the hacker's earlier arrest following his attacks on Microsoft and Nvidia a few months ago.

In the meantime, fans are busy mapping out the GTA 6 map using info from the leak and the real-life inspiration of Vice City, Miami. Also, another leaker claims that GTA 6 will come out in 2025.
