“We recently experienced a network breach in which an unauthorized third party illegally accessed our systems and downloaded confidential information, including early development footage for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto.“begins by acknowledging the studio at the opening of the press release it has just released on his Twitter account. A press release which makes no mention of the theft of the source codes of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto 6 which boasted the hacker responsible for this leak, undoubtedly the most important that a development studio has known to date.
“At this time, we do not anticipate any disruption to our live gaming services or any long-term effect on the development of our ongoing projects.“However, would like to reassure Rockstar, while this intrusion has raised many questions about the possible repercussions on the development of the game and the working conditions of the company’s employees. The press release continues, bitter: “We are extremely disappointed that details about our upcoming game have been shared with you in this way. Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned, and we remain as committed to providing you, our players, with an experience that truly exceeds your expectations. We’ll let you know soon and, of course, we’ll introduce you to this new game as soon as it’s ready. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support in this situation.“
A rather brief press release which therefore does not mention the follow-up that the company intends to give to this unprecedented intrusion. It is nevertheless a safe bet that Take-Two Interactive will communicate in the days or weeks to come on the legal aspect of this case.
