According to video game enthusiast Michael, the Teapot hacker has returned to the GTA Forums in response to the admin’s deletion of his original thread. The hacker also shared the new details of his Telegram account, suggesting people how to reach him. The hacker previously closed his Telegram account when news of his identification broke.
Just when it looks like the GTA 6 leak controversy might be over, it looks like the hacker has other plans for it.
GTA 6 hacker could still be active as Rockstar tries to track him down
As seen in the aforementioned tweet, Michael reported that the hacker was back, showing a screenshot of the new GTA forum thread as proof. In another tweet, he also mentioned that the post was only posted some time ago, suggesting that the lessor is still actively using Telegram to negotiate. He said the following in a tweet:
“It should be mentioned that this message was published several hours ago. I’m sure it was Sunday night. It just goes to show that the GTA 6 hacker is indeed still active, at least on his new Telegram where he put the GTA 6 data up for sale and promises another public release of the data.
When someone pointed out in the post that it was a new post and possibly had nothing to do with the original hacker, Michael responded by stating:
The source also shared that many fake accounts have appeared on the GTA forums claiming to be the hacker, as reported by the admins. The following is a tweet from Michael sharing information about the situation:
Earlier today, renowned gaming journalist Ben announced that Rockstar Games and Uber are working closely with the FBI and the US Department of Justice to handle the situation and find the hacker. He tweeted the following, quoting an official statement from Uber:
Rockstar Games also released an official statement yesterday stating their disappointment with the entire GTA 6 leak and assuring fans that it will not affect the production of the game. The statement read:
“We are extremely disappointed to have details of our next game shared with you all in this way. Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned and we remain more committed than ever to providing you, our players, an experience that truly exceeds your expectations. We will update everyone soon and of course, we will properly introduce you to this next game when it’s ready.
The developers also thanked everyone who supported them through this difficult situation, including Naughty Dog co-president and The Last Of Us creator Neil Druckman, who tweeted the following:
Michael previously reported that the hacker was a 16-year-old leader of a ransomware gang called Lapsus$, the same group that hacked into Uber and violated the securities of companies like Ubisoft and Microsoft. Here are some tweets reporting the same thing:
The situation doesn’t seem to end whether the hacker is really back or just someone else impersonating him. Fans can expect more news and information on Rockstar’s next game soon.
