Grand Theft Auto 6 map leaks are reportedly from a Rockstar employee’s son



Just a day away from getting our first look Grand Theft Auto 6, a leak has surfaced that claims to show footage from the upcoming game. According to GTABase.com on Twitter, the TikTok account ‘azzarossi’ posted a video showing a quick panoramic view and the scale of the alleged location GTA 6 is based on – a fictional version of Miami aka Vice City. The video also shows a Pißwasser billboard, an in-game beer brand that has always been present in the game GTA game. While the account has since gone private, there is no way to verify if the footage is genuine. However, the important landmarks are consistent with the massive data leak from last year, which exposed over 90 clips under development into the wild.

The same TikTok the user also posted a photo of himself with Aaron Garbut, head of development and co-studio head at Rockstar North, leading to speculation that the leak could be Rockstar games employee’s son. While there’s still no evidence that the publisher has removed videos for copyright infringement, it’s a little surprising how “my dad works at Rockstar/ Xbox/ PlayStation” meme turned out to be real for once. If true, the leaker must have gotten his dad in big trouble at the studio for some online likes, despite almost immediately privatizing their account. The last time the publisher dealt with leaks was an unnamed 17-year-old reportedly arrested for hacking and for being part of the group that claimed credit for the Uber leak. Rockstar has not released any statement about the leak, and now would also be a good time to block keywords on social media to avoid spoilers.

Meanwhile, the company is poised to make its debut first trailer for the next GTA game on Tuesday, December 5 at 19:30 IST in India/ at 9:00 a.m. ET in the US. While the internet waits anxiously GTA 6, Rockstar has yet to reveal an official title for the game, so it could easily be a subtitled spin-off rather than a numbered sequel. ONE countdown video is now also live on YouTube. There’s no word on a release window, but one May earnings report from Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive suggests a window within fiscal year 2025, which opens as early as April next year. Ambitions are quite high at the studio, which is said to introduce its first playable Latina female protagonist and also increase the number of open indoor locations for better immersion. However, there are reportedly two leads, a criminal couple who have been compared to the real-life Bonnie and Clyde, who went around robbing banks and stores during the Great Depression in America.

People online also tried to match the leaked clip with the real Miami City and found stark similarities between the two. Ahead of the launch of the GTA 6 trailer, Rockstar has changed its logo and relax of its ‘Social Club’ branding, although its online multiplayer component still functions in the same way. In addition, the studio is launching its remastered Grand Theft Auto Trilogy on Netflix on December 14available to all subscribers and with graphical and mechanical upgrades.

Grand Theft Auto 6 is likely to launch on the current gen PS5 and Xbox Series S/X first before you go to PC – as seen with previous Rockstar posts.
