Sony has issued an official apology to both Rockstar and Grand Theft Auto fans following the reveal of leaked Grand Theft Auto V details, which originated from the PlayStation Store pre-release files.
Gamers who pre-ordered the game from the PlayStation Store were able to download a large chunk of the game’s files to reduce download time at launch. To most these files would be worthless, but dataminers had a field day and were able to grab a few snippets of information, such as the complete soundtrack–luckily most of the important information was encrypted.
“Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets,” Sony said in a statement.
“These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe. We sincerely apologize to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content. GTA V is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year with a very passionate following, and we’re looking forward to a historic launch on September 17.”
