A seven-second TikTok video claiming to be a “first look at GTA 6” has gone viral, and unsubstantiated rumors suggest it was leaked by the Rockstar developer’s son.
It’s nearly impossible to go online these days without being smacked in the face by half a dozen alleged GTA 6 “leaks,” but this one was more believable than most, and that’s why it gained traction. Soon.
Two videos were posted by the account that was thrown out i_see_in_4kAnd the two – in the last couple of hours – have shared a few seconds of what the poster insists is GTA 6.
Now, however, GTABase.com – a site that provides “credible coverage” of all things Rockstar – claims that “in a completely unexpected turn of events, the ‘leaked’ footage appears to have come from the son of a Rockstar Games employee”. . However, there’s currently no way — or footage — to verify that claim.

“We initially planned to comment further, but I think it’s wise to limit the spread of misinformation,” the site said. “There have been rumors of Rockstar Games removing the video – we have yet to see evidence of this.
“The evidence that the video came from someone associated with the employee in question is pretty solid. Again, if this is true, it’s very disappointing that it happened so close to the official release.
“The photo used as evidence is not of the employee’s son, or evidence of this leak may have been attempted by a third party to make it appear so.”
We’ll keep you posted as this story develops.
We won’t have to wait long to see if the leak looks legit, of course; The first Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer has a release date: this Tuesday, December 5, at 2pm UK time.
Developer Rockstar announced the news yesterday (December 1), and the anticipation is palpable – within seconds, the studio’s post on X/Twitter had already gone viral with some enthusiastic responses.
