You can’t say that Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick lacks confidence.

Despite the events of September, work on GTA 6 will continue as usual.

According to the head of Rockstar Games’ parent company, the GTA 6 leak in September won’t affect the game’s development.

The recent GTA 6 leak was one of the largest in history. The info dump contains 90 videos and screenshots taken directly from an early development version of GTA 6. Other than confirming early speculation and rumors about GTA 6, the leak doesn’t help anyone. But, the most important part is that the leak didn’t help anyone. Don’t hurt GTA 6’s development.

Here’s what Zelnick had to say about the leak:

Regarding leaks, unfortunately, we do take such incidents very seriously. There’s no evidence of any physical assets being taken, which is a good thing, and the leak certainly won’t have any impact on development or anything like that. But it’s very disappointing and makes us more vigilant about issues related to cybersecurity.

GTA 6 has big shoes to fill every time it launches.

During the same earnings call, Take-Two revealed another milestone for Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption.

According to the data, the GTA series outsold all other video game franchises except Call of Duty, Mario, Tetris, and Pokemon, with 385 million units sold. Not surprisingly, nearly half came from GTA 5, with 170 million units sold. Global sales of the Red Dead Redemption series also increased by a few million to 70 million.

GTA 5’s numbers set a high bar for what GTA 6 is trying to climb. Grand Theft Auto 5 set the record for the fastest entertainment product in history to reach 1 billion retail sales, and it did so in three days. Despite its age, Rockstar Games continues to update GTA 6 with patches and updates. The latest one gives players another reason to join in and organize a heist with their friends.
