The GTA 6 trailer leaked around 15 hours before it was scheduled to release. We’ve got reactions from the talented developers who work at Rockstar now the trailer is out officially.
Unfortunately, the leak quickly went viral ruining the soon to be historic moment for fans and developers. The leak caused Rockstar Games to share the trailer from themselves nearly a day early.
GTA VI has been in some form of development for close to a decade now. This means some of the employees at Rockstar have spent nearly 10 years on this project. Given the huge gameplay leak last year and now the trailer right at the finish line, it must have hurt. All of the hard working developers at Rockstar were waiting to finally be able to show us what they’ve been working on in their way.
