GTA 6 leaks: Forget what you think you know about game development

Take it from someone who knows, you’ve all got no idea what you’re on about when it comes to GTA 6. Like many, my first thought upon seeing the GTA 6 leak was ‘fuck’. The second was a flashback to the protocols which had occurred when leaks or security breaches, no matter how minor, had happened when I was on the development side of the industry: usually, angry-faced men bursting into a room and demanding nobody touch anything. The third thought was what Rockstar, the king of image control and information flow, would do now. My mind ran to that…

2021 Was Both A Great And Terrible Year For GTA Fans

Rockstar’s super popular Grand Theft Auto franchise is in a weird place in 2021. It’s a game series that remains huge, despite going years without a big, new release. Its online iteration is more popular than ever, yet if you look around Reddit and Twitter you’d assume it has no fans.

First GTA: Trilogy – The Definitive Edition title update released

The first of many planned updates has arrived. Rockstar has released the first GTA: Trilogy – The Definitive Edition title update. It’s a decent-sized patch too, and fixes multiple localization issues, instances of missing or misaligned collision, and more in all three games. With GTA 3, issues with blurry camera cuts and transitions during cutscenes have been addressed, some failing missions were fixed, Claude will no longer float in the air because that’s just not how things work, and the game should no longer crash after getting in your car upon completing Triad War. Plenty of fixes have also been…

Remember When Everyone Was Convinced GTA: San Andreas Was Full of Creepy Secrets?

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas isn’t filled with ghosts, aliens, cryptids, monsters, or shadow people. But in the years after its initial 2004 release—at a time when uploading videos to the internet was hard and datamining games was less common—people believed Rockstar’s classic open-world game contained all those creepy things and more. Some went to YouTube to share their findings, theories, and “myth hunts.” Often Windows Movie Maker and the X-Files theme song were a part of these videos.
