Last week, video footage from a still in-development version of GTA 6 was leaked online, and it was reported fairly quickly that a teenager in the UK was allegedly responsible for stealing the leaked data.
Meanwhile, London police today announced that a 17-year-old „suspected of hacking” was arrested last night.

There has been yet no official confirmation that the detained teenager is responsible for stealing the Rockstar Games assets.
The alleged hacker is said to be a minor. His home address in Oxfordshire has been determined, hence a lot of players believe that London Police have caught the person who hacked GTA 6 last week.
This has also been verified by Reuters journalist Matthew Keys, who reports – citing his own sources – that the crime committed by the 17-year-old is linked to having gained access to the Rockstar Games and possibly Uber Technologies systems. Official details on the case, however, are still to be announced.
