As the long-awaited and much anticipated GTA 6 is getting closer to the finishing line, the developer behind it, Rockstar, has decided to make some changes. 

With all the problems connected to leaks, the developer is concerned that it may happen again. Thus, entering the final stages of the game's development, Rockstar asks its employees to return to the office five days a week starting in April.

"Making these changes now puts us in the best position to deliver the next Grand Theft Auto at the level of quality and polish we know it requires, along with a publishing roadmap that matches the scale and ambition of the game," Jenn Kolbe, Rockstar's Head of Publishing, wrote in an email to employees.

According to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, Kolbe also mentioned that it might boost the team's productivity, in addition to the security side of the question, of course.

Well, it does seem reasonable to take such actions to protect the game, as you may recall how materials from an early GTA 6 footage surfaced online due to a hacker attack, followed by the leak of the game's debut trailer.

Speaking of the game, Rockstar officially revealed GTA 6 in December 2023, with a planned release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2025.
