The GTA 6 team has had to make some changes after they were troubled that data about the game might leak. This means that everyone developing the game will have to return to a full-time office job to ensure the security of the franchise. At the end of 2023, Rockstar confirmed the game would be coming out soon, and the teaser trailer was released to the world, sparking wide controversy.

GTA 6 Teams Move Back to the Office

Although GTA 6 will not be released until 2025, it has entered the final stages of development, which means leaks become increasingly possible and likely. The game is reportedly already ready, with only bug fixing, tweaking, and marketing being left to be done before release. So, Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. decided to get staff back to the office to protect the product.

It’s no wonder that Rockstar is taking such measures regarding security over its new child. For the most part, GTA 6 was kept secret during its entire developmental state, although one leak happened in September 2022 with actual footage from the game.

Rockstar Fears Further GTA Leaks

After the 2022 incident, Rockstar took the hacker to court in the UK and told judges that the leak had cost the company and it would take $5 million to fix the damage. 90 screenshots of the game accompanied the footage. According to Jennifer Kolbe, the changes are done to position the company in the best place to deliver the next with the required levels of quality and polish. This is certainly good news for game fans throughout the world.

Some have speculated that employees weren’t thrilled by the prospect of going to the office, but no employees have gone as far as to say so. So far, nothing has been said about the exact timing of release for GTA 6. What is known is that gamers will go back to Vice City, the game’s version of Miami, which was where 2002’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City took place.
