Alleged hacker of GTA 6 appears in court and is being held in a juvenile detention center

Police in London have arrested a 17-year-old suspected of perpetrating the recent Rockstar Games hack, which resulted in the unprecedented leak of Grand Theft Auto 6 in-progress footage. As reported by Eurogamer, the suspect has pleaded not guilty. with computer misuse, but pleaded guilty to violating bail conditions.

The arrest, made on September 22, was announced by the City of London Police Twitter account the following day. In its initial post, the police department did not specify whether the hacker, described as a “17-year-old in Oxfordshire,” was suspected of hacking Rockstar Games. However, he did say that he was “part of an investigation” carried out in collaboration with the UK’s National Cybercrime Unit.

Eurogamer later reported that the suspect was believed to be behind the Rockstar hack as part of a larger group called Lapsus$, and it wasn’t the first time they were allegedly on the wrong side of the law. It’s unclear what penalties the suspect could face, or what action Take-Two will take against them.

Grand Theft Auto 6, or whatever it’s called, hasn’t been officially announced, though Rockstar said it’s working on the next Grand Theft Auto game. The leak revealed very early footage in development, seemingly confirming a female playable character and a Vice City setting. Rockstar hasn’t addressed these details directly, saying only that development will continue as planned.
