One of the most shocking events of all of 2022 in the industry was the publication of a large number of files related to GTA 6. An 18-year-old young man, Arion Kurtaj, was responsible for the next Rockstar Games bomb came to light before its time, so the scandal was huge.
In exchange for avoiding the leak of all the content, the criminal blackmailed the company to meet his demands. This method of action was not foreign to him, since Kurtaj was part of Lapsus$, a group that managed to hack companies of the caliber of Nvidia, Uber, Revolut and in many cases demanding a ransom for the data.
Although he has been imprisoned since September 2022 and has had a lot of time to reflect, the truth is that It doesn’t seem like Kurtaj has learned to reconsider his actions. As collected from Insider Gamingthe boy appeared at a court hearing, although the most striking statement came from psychiatrist Claudia Camden-Smith.
She claims that, during one of the evaluation sessions with Kurtaj, he confessed to her that he was very clear that he would commit criminal acts again once he was released. Obviously, these types of statements do not help the defense of the accused and give encouragement to the prosecution represented by Kevin Barry.
Currently, Kurtaj has requested a 12 week hospitalization order
