I'm OK guys
Take-Two recently stated during its outlook release for the 2023 fiscal year that the GTA 6 leaks have not affected the game’s development. The company made the statement during a broadcast held to release fiscal estimates and results to investors. In it, the company’s CEO, Straus Zelnick, explained that the company tried to work around the episode so the game would not suffer any delays. The hacker leaked over 90 confidential videos and images from the game’s development in October 2022.
“There’s no evidence that any material assets were taken, which is a good thing,” Zelnick said. And certainly, the leak won’t have any influence on development or anything of the sort. Still, it is terribly disappointing and causes us to be ever more vigilant on matters relating to cybersecurity.”

Take Two’s huge numbers
Besides the GTA 6 leaks, at the same conference with investors, the CEO announced that GTA V had reached an impressive mark: about 170 million copies sold since its release in 2013. In addition, Red Dead Redemption 2, released in 2018, has reached 40 million sales.
The publisher also revealed its plans for new releases for the coming years, even without mentioning names. It is worth remembering that besides Rockstar Games, under Take-Two’s umbrella, there are other giants such as 2K, Zynga, and Ghost Story Games.
In this context, these companies are developing 87 titles that are set to release by 2025. And, as everyone can see, GTA 6 is one of these titles.
