GTA 6 Hacker Deemed Unfit To Stand Trial

Arion Kurtaj has been accused of causing millions in damages in cyber crimes against Rockstar, Nvidia, Uber, Revolut, BT and EE.

GTA 6 is still in development at Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive, even though the game was the victim of a truly huge leak a couple of months ago. A hacker has in reality leaked information on the sequel to Grand Theft Auto V, along with stolen videos and images. Now, it seems that the 18-year-old looks to be unfit for trial in the court. Check out all the details below.

GTA 6 Hacker Deemed Unfit To Stand Trial

While some fans were waiting for Grand Theft Auto 6 news by deceiving time and sharing a few videos made in Unreal Engine 5, the leak about GTA 6 was certainly a complete surprise that happened totally unexpectedly. Now, despite initially pleading innocent, the apparent hacker appears to be in even more trouble.

As reported by Reuters, the 18-year-old accused of hacking Rockstar and leaking GTA 6 material was found unfit for trial. Instead, a jury will decide whether or not he is responsible for the criminal charges, not whether or not he is guilty.

Arion Kurtaj, who was just named by the court after turning 18, was also accused of causing millions in damages in cyber crimes against Nvidia, Uber, Revolut, BT, and EE. A 17-year-old alleged accomplice will be tried on these charges, and since his initial arrest, he has faced other police hacking charges,

So far, court documents show Kurtaj and the unnamed 17-year-old have made several appearances at Southwark Crown Court in London. The court learned that the two teenagers hacked several companies, including Rockstar, and then blackmailed the video game studio with the threat of releasing the source code.

However, the court also learned that Kurtaj was found to be unfit to stand trial, according to some psychiatrists. Under UK law, this means that the defendant would be unable to understand the evidence presented or testify on their behalf.

No similar decision has been made for the 17-year-old, who will presumably stand trial for the alleged cybercrimes. We will see how this news develops, so stay tuned on our website to get the latest information on this case.
