Game Industry Source Code Leaks

Edit on Github | Updated: 29th November 2022

The games industry has had its fair share of cyberattacks in the past decade and one of the main targets for hackers has always been source code. This post will cover all the major leaks that we are aware of for companies related to the games industry. Specifically focussing on programming related source code rather than assets or design documents, but many contain both types of content.

This post covers leaks related to entire companies, if you are looking for leaks for a specific game then check out our page on retail source code leaks:

Not covered in that post was source code related to an unreleased Resident Evil game which was not retro enough to be covered on this site.


Microsoft

Microsoft has been the target of multiple hacks over the years, from the theft of the original Xbox firmware source code to the more recent release of the Windows XP source code.

In September 2020 the source code for Microsoft’s Windows XP Operating System was leaked online. We will have a post covering this in the future.


Rockstar

Although it didn’t contain any programming files, the studio “accidentally” released a folder of internal development tools and game scripts in the retail release of GTA Trilogy for the Nintendo Switch.
