In relatively recent times, early footage of GTA 6 has surfaced online and anyone even remotely associated with the gaming world — more or less — realizes how big of a deal this is. The IP that is supposed to make billions of dollars in the time ahead has had quite the crashing start to things, and it hasn’t even been revealed yet officially.
Escalating the situation further is the same GTA 6 leaker that has taken to the unofficial GTA forum to showcase the very first super convincing GTA 6 footage, images, and just about everything else. In case you missed it, here’s all the GTA 6 footage leaked so far.
- The icing on the cake is the fact that the GTA 6 leaker is the same person who hacked into Uber recently.
- Instead of fearing for his life in jail, the notorious GTA 6 leaker wants to negotiate a deal for the leaks he hasn’t posted yet.
- The individual involved even has the source code for both GTA 5 and GTA 6 allegedly, making this nightmare even worse for Rockstar Games.
Now, the latest development to surface online comes from the encounter of a Twitter user called John Hey who has contacted the Tea Pot—the username of the GTA 6 leaker—on Telegram. Before we proceed with that dialogue, let’s give you a brief background on some essential prior incidents.
The leaker updated his original post on GTA Forums with the following message,
Ok so this has gone unexpectedly viral, woke up to 3000 Telegram DM’s If you are a employee of Rockstar or Take2 and your trying to contact me. Send me a message containing 22559219889638875756 on telegram Or you can email me at email@example.com **from your corporate email address** I will try to read all these reply soon – i am looking to negotiate a deal.”
The guy must be joking with the term “unexpectedly viral.” He surely couldn’t have had another thing coming by leaking actual footage of one of the most anticipated games in the world right now.
I mean, people have been prying for the next iteration in the Grand Theft Auto series for over a decade now, so it’s safe to say that the wildfire-like spread of the news was duly expected. According to a screenshot shared by Tom Henderson — notable industry insider — Tea Pot has the following to share with the world.
The hacker has now said that he will sell GTA 5's source code and assets and will not accept any offers under 5 figures.

The GTA 6 source code isn’t being put on sale at the moment, but the leaker is accepting 5-figure offers for GTA 5’s source code. What a wild time to live in, truth be fairly told.
Since Tea Pot publicly gave out this username on Telegram, a variety of people have reached out to him. Of course, some of the concerned parties would be Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive themselves but amid all the chaos, the leaker is finding it hard to handle all the fame at the moment.
However, he’s derived a way for important personnel to skip the queue and grab his attention foremost. Rockstar officials may use a specific string of digits to message Tea Pot directly, so the person in question could get back to them at the soonest.
Of course, exploits are bound to occur in this way, and one has indeed surfaced, allowing us to get a sneak peek further into the complexity of the matter. Coming back to the Twitter user now, John Hey has impersonated an employee of Take-Two Interactive to get in touch with the leaker.
Take a look at the full conversation that has happened to go down between John and Tea Pot the GTA 6 leaker. Although the Twitter user has done a poor job at convincing Tea Pot, the latter has still spilled the beans and has hinted to look toward the log files for proof.

Apparently, Tea Pot is packing a bunch of more stuff that hasn’t come out to light yet, hence the reason he’s looking to make a quick buck and accept money for not letting the cat out of the bag any more than it already is.
Do let us know what you think of the whole debacle down in the comments section. We have a feeling there’s a lot more to come out of this situation yet.
