It has been revealed this week that Rockstar the developers and creators of the new Grand Theft Auto V game set to be released officially tomorrow on September 17th 2013 has started investigating reports that giant online Internet store Amazon dispatched the game four days early to some customers.
Various leaked images of the new Grand Theft Auto V game have been leaked on to the Internet ahead of the games launch, with some Microsoft Xbox 360 users already being banned from Xbox Live for releasing detail early about the new game.
Rockstar told GamesIndustry International that it was ‘in the process of investigating early “sales” to determine how and why that is occurring’.
Amazon has also reported this week that its has sold out of the new Grand Theft Auto V game which cost Rockstar an estimated $170 million to develop. Rockstar’s Dan Houser says that the game has an expected competition time of about 100 hours.
“We’ve got this big open-world experience that’s 100 hours long, and that gives players control over what they do, what they see, and how they see it. A world where you can do everything from rob a bank to take a yoga lesson to watch TV, all in your own time. How do you condense that into a two-hour or 12-hour experience where you take away the main things: player agency and freedom?”
