September 22, 2022
This week on Eurogamer Newscast we discuss video game leaks, following last weekend’s devastating Rockstar Games hack that saw nearly an hour of in-development footage of Grand Theft Auto 6 spill onto the internet and quickly dissected. by the masses.
The mere fact that Rockstar was hacked in this way was in itself shocking – but the damage was compounded due to the negative feedback this in-development content subsequently received.

After that, we turn our attention to the YouTuber who accidentally came out as being behind an “insider” Twitter account after posting understated information given to him by Ubisoft. Join Tom Phillips, Ed Nightingale, Victoria Kennedy and Ishraq Subhan for their thoughts.
