    Not really but Rockstar themselves was hacked for over 50 minutes of GTA VI gameplay footage and confidential documents. The GPU crisis comes to an end as GPU mining loses all value forcing miners to sell their abundance of previously hard-to-get graphics cards.

    Sony entertainment is in hot water over allegations that it has been overcharging the UK PlayStation community with its monopoly on digital game sales, causing digital titles to cost far more than their physical counterparts. Also, HBO Max is coming to an end after just a two-year run and will be absorbed by Discovery + for more reality TV-like programs.

    Game developer Ubisoft finds itself in similar waters as Activision-Blizzard and faces backlash from its workers that formed the organization "A better Ubisoft" in an attempt to rid the company of unfair treatment and judgment towards its employees. But is everything on the level? Cyberpunk 2077 prepares for the future with major updates and DLC, but is it too little too late?
