Some people who had pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto 5 through the PlayStation Store in Europe had downloaded a digital pre-order file of the game which was unintentionally published on the store. They were able to mine through the file and access certain GTA 5 assets as well as discover things such as the game’s main theme and soundtrack, apart from various other details. Sony has acknowledged the leak and apologized for it in a post published yesterday on the official PlayStation blog.
Sony says that it sincerely apologizes to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content. The digital pre-order file has now been removed from the PlayStation Store in Europe. The damage has been done though. Spoiler content related to GTA 5 is now out and plastered across the web. There’s really only one thing you can do to shield yourself from it, don’t search for it. Sony says in its post that GTA 5 is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, and that there’s no doubt about the fact that it has a very passionate following around the globe. The company says it looks forward to the historic launch of GTA 5 on September 17th.
