One of the biggest leaks in video game history came on Sunday when 90 videos from a previously unseen GTA 6 went viral. It is also believed that a hacker managed to steal the GTA 5 Source code, possibly with the intention of selling it for a significant amount of money.

While Rockstar released a statement confirming that the leaks were real, it made no mention of stealing the current GTA’s Source code. However, Insider Gaming reports that it is now almost certain that the leaked videos were accompanied by the theft of the GTA 5 Source code.

The site has had private conversations with a number of modders and hackers, and one of them said that there is a “reasonable degree of certainty” that the Source code theft rumors are true. An update to this article further clarified that not only was GTA 5’s Source code stolen, but that parts of it had already either been sold or given to others, as evidenced by a previously unknown Source code that was added to Github a few hours ago.

If it really was stolen, it remains unclear what exactly the still undiscovered hacker is going to do with it. Someone claiming to have the Source code and wanting to sell it surfaced shortly after the leak, only to find out it was a scammer who tricked a potential buyer into forking out a tidy sum.

Now there are a lot of rumors and reports about who the hacker might be. The FBI is involved, and it is believed that one 16-year-old teenager living in the UK may be the culprit. Given the amount of attention the leak has generated, and if it’s really one teenager, it’s probably safe to assume that most of the people claiming to be the hackers are actually false.
