Allegations Against Skenkir Surface

@zachxbt alleges that Skenkir obtained access to a YouTube admin panel, granting early access to the unlisted trailer.

The leaked trailer included a screenshot revealing the anticipated release window of Fall 2025, a detail previously undisclosed by Rockstar Games. The timeline presented by @zachxbt indicates that the leaked video went live at 21:58 UTC on an undisclosed date. Consequently, Rockstar Games was forced to release the official version on YouTube ahead of schedule.

Rockstar Games Responds Swiftly

Acknowledging the leak, Rockstar Games addressed the situation via X. The account responsible for the leak was swiftly suspended, although the damage had been done. Despite the setback, the official trailer shattered records upon its legitimate release.
