The company said in a statement posted on its social networks that it was "very disappointed" to have game data leaked in this manner, but that the disclosure would not cause the project to be delayed. \n \n"We recently experienced a network intrusion in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed and downloaded sensitive information from our computers, including early development video for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto," said the business. \nWe do not expect any disruption to our live game services or any long-term impact on the development of our ongoing projects at this time. \n \n \n \nWe are incredibly disappointed that any information about our forthcoming game is being disclosed to you all in this manner." Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned, and we are as dedicated as ever to providing you, our gamers, with an experience that truly exceeds your expectations. \n \n \n \nWe will inform everyone again soon, and of course, when the new game is ready, we will properly expose you to it." We'd like to thank everyone for their continuous support at this difficult time." \nOn Sunday, more than an hour of what appeared to be authentic Grand Theft Auto 6 footage was leaked, and Rockstar's parent company Take-Two has been attempting to erase connections to it ever since. \n \nTake-Two has requested that multiple videos be deleted from YouTube, verifying the veracity of the large leak. Take-Two has also reportedly ordered the removal of any links to the GTA 6 footage from two of the largest online Grand Theft Auto communities. \n \nThe leaked clip, which was first submitted to the GTA Forums by an unknown user, features open-world gameplay from a GTA 6 alpha build. The leaker claims that the videos were obtained via a Slack channel, most likely belonging to a Rockstar employee. \n \nAfter the leak, a lot of developers spoke out in support of Rockstar, but the most important was Xbox's corporate vice president Sarah Bond.
