GTA 6, the most highly-anticipated game, has been the target of fake leaks that have come and gone, and they've sparked a great deal of speculation among fans waiting for the game's launch. While many leaks other than the the massive one that revealed 90+ minutes of gameplay footage have been proven to be fake, the most recent leak may actually be real.

Just a couple of days after Rockstar Games announced when the first trailer for GTA 6 will be revealed, a massive leak has hit the webs, and although it has been taken down from the original source's TikTok account, fans were able to save and re-share the leaked content on social media, but what exactly did they leak? And is the leak real?

Here's everything we know about the latest GTA 6 leak:

What did the massive GTA 6 leak on TikTok reveal?

The massive leak was shown in a slowed-down video of a person in a debug menu in what appears to be an early version of Grand Theft Auto 6. The video, which was already taken down from TikTok, revealed a new look at the downtown area of Vice City, sights that weren't shown in the first batch of viral leaks.

Someone shared the video on the GTA 6 subreddit and the moderators promptly removed it, though that didn't stop the gaming community from talking about it. While many believed the leak to be fake, some netizens noticed that many of the details in the footage would have taken a lot of effort to fabricate.

There's also an X (formerly Twitter) user who shared the leaks, but the tweet might be deleted soon, knowing how Rockstar will likely take down any content from the leaks.

Someone also linked some parts of the video that showed faraway buildings in the original leaks.

Who's possibly behind the latest GTA 6 leak?

According to a slide show that was posted online, the son of Aaron Garbut, the head of development Rockstar North, was allegedly behind the latest leak. This hasn't been confirmed, and this is only according to the account that shared the leaks. The person claims to know Garbut's son but that they aren't him, commenting that he's "the coolest dude I met" on one of their TikToks.

That person also shared a slide show that showed sport cars that are new to the series, and areas that weren't present in Grand Theft Auto V, but that's already been deleted.

Additionally, screenshots of a conversation with Aaron Garbut himself shared on Reddit, with him allegedly confirming that the leaks are legitimate, with him also revealing that GTA 6 will have 3 major cities, four "sub cities," and all of them surround a "large lake in the middle of the map."

The posts showing the leaks are swiftly being taken down online, with many who originally believed it was fake now wondering if the content from the leaks is real after the huge amount of proof shared by the azzarossi account.

With Rockstar moving rapidly to remove content, and the massive amount of new content that's being shown, it's hard to deny that the leaked details are real. However, there's no way to know for sure if they're legitimate. Fortunately, the first GTA 6 trailer is only a few days away, so we'll find out soon enough if the leaks are real.
