This week in Eurogamer’s Newsletter, we’re discussing video game leaks following last weekend’s devastating Rockstar Games hack, which saw almost an hour of footage of Grand Theft Auto 6 in development leak onto the internet and was quickly analyzed by the masses.
The very fact that Rockstar was hacked in this way was shocking in itself, but the damage was made even worse by the negative comments that this unfinished content then received. The hack took away Rockstar’s ability to show the game on its own terms – and for what? We discuss.
After that, we turn our attention to a YouTuber who accidentally claimed to be behind an “insider” Twitter account after posting covert information that Ubisoft provided them. Join Tom Phillips, Ed Nightingale, Victoria Kennedy and Ishrak Subhan to share your thoughts.
