Even the car interior is very detailed.Interesting to read that they've been using RDR2 assets/tech in these leaks. RDR2 is a really pretty game to play.
We believe that this attacker (or attackers) are affiliated with a hacking group called Lapsus$, which has been increasingly active over the last year or so. This group typically uses similar techniques to target technology companies, and in 2022 alone has breached Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, Nvidia and Okta, among others. There are also reports over the weekend that this same actor breached video game maker Rockstar Games. We are in close coordination with the FBI and US Department of Justice on this matter and will continue to support their efforts.
That looks heavily unoriginal for something of Rockstar's ability. Lots of the same, equal size grid placements covering 3-5 blocks. I think they lean more into Miami being the giant hub like Los Santos & use the Everglades/neighboring areas around Miami as the smaller towns w/ a small nod to the Keys.edit: Google says this is a leaked map (overlaid with GTA V map) so it looks like we'll get the Keys but no Cuba? Bummer.
Yeah one thing that struck me was a complete lack of straight roads which is typical of Florida in addition to a very meagerly sized downtown area and a suspicious number of roundabouts.That looks heavily unoriginal for something of Rockstar's ability.

Edit* I was able to download the 90 or so videos from the leak. Going through them, I'm confident that's fake. A few videos show the usual left corner map; that map doesn't match any of the map outlines being seen in the videos.
Yeah, definitely fake. That map was "leaked" over a year ago, and only picked up traction because of the actual leak. Reportedly confirmed fake last year shortly after it was shown.
I read lately that the whole Americas thing (along with different points in time) was scrapped because of the work required & that's why Rockstar decided to stick to a modern South Florida. So, my bleak outlook is that anything outside the city will probably be 1 or 2 missions like in past games.Yeah one thing that struck me was a complete lack of straight roads which is typical of Florida in addition to a very meagerly sized downtown area and a suspicious number of roundabouts.
Fingers crossed for Cuba (hey maybe its the same universe as RDR and it would be called Guarma?)
There's also Anywhere City and 1960's London, if we're counting the PS1 era. And to be honest, I wouldn't mind them throwing a nod to the old top-down games in some fashion.I knew vice city was going to be the location.
Its been hinted so many times even Rockstar games said themselves they want to remake all the cities.
They done Liberty City and Los Santos now its Vice City.
All that is left to be remade is San Fierro and Las Venturas.
Talented, but also stupid. This was only gonna end one way…. Uk government should employ him .Kid could be in a world of hurt legal-wise. Take Two is a company that has a record of being ultra aggressive when it comes to protecting its trademarks/property.
Their aimed-always-changing-not-set-in-stone deadline is holiday 2024. Which has been pushed back multiple times the past few years. Unfortunately, it could slip into early 2025 as well.
Speaking of which, most companies are returning with a "forced return to office" policy to revert back to pre-pandemic days. Activision Blizzard is already met with internal backlash. Rockstar is no different. The debate and consequences of the policy is a whole another topic.
With almost the entirety of the workforce in office, Rockstar could be more firm about an announcement this year. Yet, losing work talent could very much lead to more delays.
I personally see an announcement as a given this year. I don't think the upper management is in a position to delay further to holiday 2025/2026. Cutting more portions of the game to package into DLCs to release later on may be sustainable for management than delaying further.
