Passionate fans are doing everything in their power to build up hype by creating fake leaks like images generated from AI that would lead others to believe it’s in the final product. However, these leaks are becoming a problem and developers need to step up.

Rockstar Has Yet to Remove the Alleged GTA 6 Leak

Rockstar is renowned for its commitment to innovation in the gaming industry. Each installment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise has always been a major improvement from previous titles, and fans are always on the lookout for the developer’s eye for detail. In today’s time, almost anyone can have access to AI, and these people are using it to generate fake leaks that could mislead fans of the game’s graphical fidelity.

The body fat, muscle, and hair growth systems from GTA: San Andreas and Red Dead Redemption 2 were groundbreaking and added a new level of immersion. Regardless, the sequel will most likely be the most visually appealing game ever to be released by Rockstar or by any developer in general, given the long production period and the track record of the studio, but players should learn to measure expectations and not be easily fooled by leaks.

Rumors are now circulating that the project could potentially be delayed, which is unsurprising and highly expected given the nature of game development. This can benefit the developers by improving the game in aspects they believe could use some improvement. Perhaps the final product will not reach what these alleged leaks have achieved, which is why Rockstar didn’t even bother taking it down because it wasn’t real to begin with.

Sometimes the fans are causing more harm than good; their excitement is costing the game by their actions of selling lies to the general public, which will believe they are present in the game and will only be disappointed to find out that the game isn’t even close to what they saw. Rockstar isn’t bothered by these fake leaks but should be wise enough to prepare for a reckoning.

The gaming community can be extremely critical if certain expectations aren’t met, and they’re already complaining about one problem that doesn’t even exist yet that involves the graphics settings and quality of the game being unable to reach 60 frames per second. Only time will tell, and the developer has already mandated all employees to report to its offices five days a week to avoid any more leaks and for quality assurance reasons.

Undoubtedly, Rockstar will likely deliver a great gaming experience, but the use of AI is getting out of hand.
