This week in the Eurogamer Newscast we’re discussing video game leaks, following last weekend’s devastating Rockstar Games hack that saw nearly an hour of Grand Theft Auto 6 in-progress footage spill onto the internet and quickly dissected by the masses.
The mere fact that Rockstar had been hacked in this way was shocking, but the damage was felt worse due to the negative feedback this work-in-progress content received. The hack has robbed Rockstar of the opportunity to showcase the game on its own terms, and for what benefit? We discuss.
After that, we turn our attention to the YouTuber who accidentally revealed himself as someone behind an “internal” Twitter account after posting hidden information that Ubisoft had provided to him. Join Tom Phillips, Ed Nightingale, Victoria Kennedy and Ishraq Subhan in sharing your thoughts.
