Right smack at noon today, we talked about how Sony apologized for the GTA 5 leak, but apparently an apology is able to patch a particular “wound”, although the hurt is still there as Rockstar seem to be feeling that at the moment as a company. Rockstar Games did announce, “We’re pleased to confirm that Grand Theft Auto V has officially gone gold and we’re now preparing the game for release on September 17th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, as many of you may already know, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTAV assets leading to leaked information and media from the game appearing online. As you can imagine, we are deeply disappointed by leaks and spoilers being spread in advance of the game’s launch. GTAV represents years of hard work by many people across the world, and we all couldn’t be more excited to finally share it with you properly this September 17th.”
Do you think that a leak and some spoilers would change your perspective on the game, or will it stop you from purchasing it? I don’t think so, but it will definitely be able to detract from the feeling of playing a game for the first time without knowing what is in store for you. Rockstar did mention that they still have additional details to share about GTA 5 between now and its September 17th official release date.
