Following on from the huge GTA 6 leak this week, another major game has suffered at the hands of hackers.

Over the weekend, 43 minutes of the unfinished Diablo IV game was released on Reddit, showing how it will look.

The footage, which basically involves the character running around in a pitch black cave, has a bunch of watermarks written across the screen, which say 'Test Build'.

According to a synopsis, Diablo IV 'takes place many years after the events of Diablo III, after millions have been slaughtered by the actions of the High Heavens and Burning Hells alike'.

The actual game is set for release at some point next year, though Blizzard, the developers behind it, have shared a number of updates with fans, showing them what they can expect.

But the extensive leak was music to many gamers' ears.

Commenting on the post, one user said: "So many good leaks today, so much fun. I'm excited."

Another chipped in: "The past week has been a whirlwind."

"What a great day," put a third.

However, not everyone was so impressed by either the game or the person responsible for leaking it.

"Looks so weirdly empty and blank," wrote one.

While someone else said: "He didn’t even show you guys the fun stuff."

The one saving grace for the developer was that the leak was largely overshadowed by the tsunami of content coming out from the new GTA game.

A series of videos were posted online, which appeared to show footage from the next instalment of the hit series.

Rockstar Games said it was 'extremely disappointed' that details from one of its upcoming games was shared in such a way.

In a statement, Rockstar explained that it had been hit with a leak after a 'network intrusion', saying someone 'illegally accessed and downloaded confidential information' including footage from the development of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto.

The company said: "We are extremely disappointed to have any details of our next game shared with you all in this way.

"Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game will continue as planned and we remain as committed as ever to delivering an experience to you, our players, that truly exceeds your expectations.

"We will update everyone again soon and, of course, will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready. We want to thank everyone for their ongoing support in this situation."

UNILAD has contacted Blizzard for comment.
