Almost two months after the historical Rockstar leak that saw gameplay videos from GTA 6 leak online, the source code from GTA V has finally been uploaded online. The code was originally obtained during the same security breach but no one really knew where it went. The hacker was arrested soon after the breach in September and claimed that they indeed obtained the files but didn’t mention where they sent them.
The GTA V source code has now been uploaded to GitHub meaning players and even cheat makers can obtain the files and fiddle around to create exploits for the game. The source code also contains cut content from GTA Online, developer notes and even parts of Rockstar’s anti-cheat software. This means that hackers can now easily exploit the source code in order to find vulnerabilities in the main game.
Of course, the GTA V source code is pointless to most gamers out there. The files aren’t playable without the correct engine content powering them. However, those who know their way around this sort of content will easily be able to work around all of the restrictions.
Rockstar has already tried to remove the GTA V source code from GitHub so if you can’t find it, they likely issued a DMCA takedown notice. While a game leak is bad enough, having your game’s source code leak is probably one of the worst things that can ever happen to a studio.
Rockstar has yet to comment on the current leak.
