Over the weekend, a digital file of the yet-to-be-released Grand Theft Auto V was made available via the Europe PlayStation Store to people who had pre-ordered the game.
While the file wasn't a full version of the game — there appears to have been no gameplay involved at all — it was quickly decrypted and a number of spoilers emerged, including a full list of music tracks for the title.
The file has now been removed from the store, and Sony's social media manager Sid Shuman issued the following statement:
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. These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe. We sincerely apologise to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content.
While the leak doesn't seem to have resulted in any truly massive spoilers in terms of plotting, fans of the series may want to be careful about the information that's out in the wild before the official 17 September launch.
