Grand Theft Auto 5 embargo broken by Amazon
Amazon, the online retailer, has broken the September 17th embargo on selling the brand new Grand Theft Auto V.
The game is due to be released tomorrow (September 17th) but according to many users on social networks, pre-ordered copies from the retailer began arriving on Saturday.
Will Guyatt, a spokesman for games site IGN, told the BBC:
“I got an early copy on Saturday, which I paid for myself, and was delighted on a personal level. But it’s obviously going to cause problems for Rockstar.
“There are about 2,000 shops stocking the game ready for launch on Tuesday, so the number of people posting spoilers online is a bit sad”
This is not the first time Amazon has broken an embargo, and many gamers purposefully purchase from the retailer in the hope of getting their hands on the game a little earlier.
GTAV (GTA5) is set to be the most expensive game ever manufactured, with rumoured costs of creating the game around the Â£150M mark.
