This copy gave access to all the audio files of GTA 5, reported Daily Dot.
The leaks not only include the audio tracks of GTA5, but it also features spoken dialogue in the story, which can help anyone figure out that Michael, one of the main characters dies in the end. After the leaks, people who became aware of the ending of the game started discussing it on discussion forums of GTA 5. Considering hackers gained access through the PlayStation console, Sony has apologized for the incident on the official blog.
