Sony has apologised to Grand Theft Auto V developer Rockstar after assets from that game appeared online.

The assets were pulled from the PlayStation 3 digital pre-load of the game, downloaded from the European PlayStation Store.

Hackers managed to extract a near-complete tracklist of the game's music, as well as cutscene audio files that contain story spoilers.

"Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets," said Sony Europe exec Nick Caplin.

"These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe.

“We sincerely apologise to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content. GTA V is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year with a very passionate following, and we're looking forward to a historic launch on September 17."

Rockstar has expressed its disappointment in a comment on its official newswire.

“As many of you may already know, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTAV assets leading to leaked information and media from the game appearing online.

“As you can imagine, we are deeply disappointed by leaks and spoilers being spread in advance of the game's launch.

GTAV represents years of hard work by many people across the world, and we all couldn't be more excited to finally share it with you properly this September 17th.

“Anyone engaging in such discussion here at the Rockstar Newswire before September 17th will have commenting privileges revoked until well after the game’s release. Thank you all or your understanding and your support.”

Grand Theft Auto V will launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
