From the Rockstar Newswire:

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. You can read Sony’s statement on this here: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/...auto-v-update/. 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. Please stay tuned here at the Rockstar Newswire for all announcements about GTAV between now and game release as we definitely still have more to officially reveal.

As a specific note to our Social Club community, please remember Rule #1 right above the Comment Box. Please do not proliferate such things here as we certainly don’t want any misinformation spread from things that are fake nor do we want spoilers spread regarding anything that might be true. Anyone engaging in such discussion here at the Rockstar Newswire before September 17th will have commenting privileges revoked until well after the game’s release. Thank you all for your understanding and your support.

I wonder how many people at SCEE have been fired or will be fired over that preload?

I think we may have a very skewed perception of how HR works at Sony.

They're sad about the leaks but can they really blame the community for trying to do this? If the game was crap, no one would care

If its gone gold, they're probably gonna have leaks far bigger than the radio station playlists to worry about very shortly...

Yeah. Cutscene audio already leaked. People already know the ending.

It happens by naively allowing the pre-load of arguably the biggest game of the generation three weeks in advance and thinking people wouldn't explore the files.

I don't know why they removed the preload, damage has already been done as soon as the files leaked. So legit consumers get punished in the end, no more preload.

Moreover, it's Sony fault for not encrypting the files properly... when you preload stuff on Steam, everything is encrypted only things like the filenames are visible.

What exactly would be the problem with that?

Sadly this. Usually seems when games go gold or been just been announced they have the game leaks within a good week.

With it being GTA 5 it's hard to know. I would imagine in some ways it will be harder to get a copy but so many more people will be attempting any ways possible to get hold of it.

Can someone please expand on the leak. What exactly did SCEE release on PSN? The full game or an encrypted pre load? How did people get to the files? And is there people playing this already?

It's not even the first time that this has happened, though.
