In a recent revelation in a UK court, Rockstar Games disclosed that the GTA 6 leak in September 2022 caused significant financial and operational damage, totaling up to $5 million and requiring thousands of staff hours for recovery efforts. The breach, orchestrated by Arion Kurtaj from the hacking group Lapsus$, exposed more than 90 screenshots and videos of an early GTA6 build before the official announcement of the game.
