The GTA 6 leak was bad for everyone, but I’m glad the devs are celebrating the breaking of the games.

the GTA 6 the escape helped no one. However, it did indirectly result in a lot of game developers talking candidly about how games are made, which is always a treat. Many developers even shared some builds in progress of their own. to put the leak into perspective and correct the hasty criticism of unfinished games and graphics. Rarely do we see the games industry come together around things like this, and it’s even rarer that so many developers come together and explain how the sausage is made.

This is a leak, not GTA 6

the leak from GTA 6, which delivered no-frills gameplay and screenshots of a rudimentary build from a game that’s still in development, led to some truly baffling guesses online. Video game development is difficult to understand at the best of times, which is perhaps why so many gamers took to social media platforms like Twitter and Reddit to voice some wild opinions. Graphics are the first thing to be finished in game development, don’t you know? It was hot, ill-informed takes like this that prompted a notoriously protective industry to share some of the worst versions of its beloved projects: the brilliantly broken, incredibly ugly drafts behind the games we love. It would almost be impressive if such misunderstandings were not disconcertingly common.
