First of all,
The much awaited Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) teaser was shockingly leaked last month, revealing previously unseen gameplay and revealing the mystery behind the game’s bright Vice City location. Even more startling is the discovery that the mastermind behind this complex attack, 18-year-old Arion Kurtaj, is connected to the infamous Lapsus$ hacking collective. With just an Amazon Fire TV Stick, a hotel TV, his smartphone, and the hotel’s WiFi, the bold youngster pulled off this gaming robbery from the comfort of his hotel room.

GTA 6 Release Date: Amid Trailer Frenzy, Fans Can't Stop Speculating  Arrival Time Of Rockstar Games' Next Title

The Mastermind’s Reveal: A new BBC investigation claims that Arion Kurtaj carried out this hack while he was free on bond, incurring a whopping $10 million cost to Rockstar Games. Kurtaj broke into Rockstar’s Slack channel from his hotel room and obtained access to more than ninety GTA 6 video footage. Due to this breach, Rockstar had to spend an extra $5 million in order to quickly address the fallout.

The Clever Technique Underlying the Hack:
Kurtaj, an Oxford native, surprised everyone by accomplishing this technological feat with the least amount of resources. He entered Rockstar’s protected territory using a Fire TV Stick, his smartphone, and a hotel TV, sending the massive game company reeling.


The Consequences for Kurtaj: Arion Kurtaj has been condemned to indefinite incarceration at a secure hospital, where he will spend the remainder of his life. This is when the narrative takes a tragic turn. Even more concerning is Kurtaj’s admission that, should he be freed, he will actively pursue his hacking activities.

In conclusion, Rockstar Games has achieved extraordinary success with the official GTA 6 trailer in spite of this breach. In just 24 hours after its debut, the video has racked up over 155 million views on YouTube and broken records. Even while the consequences of the hack are still being felt, the gaming world is still enthralled with the exciting story of Grand Theft Auto 6.
