Goat Simulator 3 Advert Gets DMCA’d by Take-Two For Including GTA 6 Leaked Gameplay
Take-Two Interactive has issued a DMCA takedown on a Goat Simulator 3 Twitter video as it contained leaked gameplay of GTA 6.
The hilarious advert was only up for a couple of hours and focused on an NPC named Shaun. Shaun gave an overview of his NPC duties and included footage of the famous GTA 6 leaks that hit the internet earlier this year that contained over 90 gameplay videos.
The developers of Goat Simulator 3 responded to the original tweet with a *Chuckles” I’m in danger” Simpsons GIF after the video was DMCA’d.

It’s unclear if Take-Two Interactive will pursue any more legal action because of the video.
After the GTA 6 hack, Take-Two announced during its earnings call that although the hack was unfortunate, they didn’t believe it will affect its development.
During Take-Two’s earnings call, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said “With regards to the leak, it was terribly unfortunate, and we take those sorts of incidents very seriously indeed.”
“There’s no evidence that any material assets were taken, which is a good thing, and certainly the leak won’t have any influence on development or anything of the sort, but it is terribly disappointing and causes us to be ever more vigilant on matters relating to cybersecurity”, it was said.
Reports suggest that a 17-year-old was arrested following the Grand Theft Auto 6 hacks and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
A Rockstar Games statement said “Work on the game will continue as planned. At this time, Rockstar Games does not anticipate any disruption to its current services nor any long-term effect on its development timelines as a result of this incident.”
