Coffee Stain North used leaked GTA 6 footage in an ad and it learned very quickly why you shouldn't mess with Take-Two Interactive.
The now-unavailable trailer features an NPC named Shaun talking about Goat Simulator 3 as he referenced his previous experiences, (i.e, the games he previously worked on).
At that point, the trailer cuts to footage from the massive leak with Shaun edited in to make it, well, look different.
Of course, the internet was always going to notice and it didn't take very long for Take-Two Interactive to act.
Take-Two is well within its rights, especially since Coffee Stain North used footage that isn't supposed to be out there.
It'll be interesting to see if the long-time Goat Simulator devs will face a worse punishment than just a DMCA takedown.
GTA 6 is currently in the works over at Rockstar Games and is expected to launch in the next few years.
