Gameplay clips of Rockstar's forthcoming Grand Theft Auto VI video game were posted to an online GTA forum late Saturday night.

The user —screen name "teapotuberhacker" — posted 90 videos via zip file to GTAForums, a Grand Theft fan site, and claimed they "could leak more data soon" – including source codes, assets, and testing builds from both GTA V and GTA VI.

The hacker reportedly also took credit for a cyberattack on Uber on Thursday, according to The Verge.

In the incident, the assailant identified themselves as a hacker and claimed to have access to multiple internal databases.

In an update Sunday on the fan site, the user provided a contact email and phone number for Rockstar and parent company Take2 employees.

"I am looking to negotiate a deal," the statement read.

According to The Verge, GTA VI is still in development and won't be ready for release for at least another two years. The last version of the game — GTA V — was initially released in 2013.

The leaked clips show unfinished aspects of the game. One video depicts a playable female character robbing a restaurant while another shows the game may be set in "Vice City Metro" – a fictional version of Miami.

In the forum thread, users questioned the validity of the leak and asked "teapotuberhacker" to post more proof of access to the stolen files.

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier tweeted to confirm that the leak was real, according to his sources at Rockstar.

The leaked videos are being widely circulated on social media although some have been flagged for copyright violations on Youtube, according to the report from The Verge.
