An ad for Goat Simulator 3 showcased some of the game’s typical goofy antics, as it included gameplay from the major GTA 6 leak that surfaced earlier this year. It didn’t take long for the publisher of GTA Take-Two to issue a DMCA notice to take the video down.
The ad, which is currently unavailable, features a humorous overview of an NPC named Shaun, who describes his mission as walking around, picking up items, and sitting on a bench. The GTA 6 clip shows up late in the ad, as Shaun says you can see him in some of the “snippets that leaked a few months ago.”
The fact that the developers of Goat Simulator responded to the original tweet with a dramatic “I’m in danger” GIF from The Simpsons suggests that they probably know what they’re doing here. It remains to be seen whether Take-Two will take any further legal action beyond this DMCA notice.
Goat Simulator 3 is the misleadingly titled sequel to the original Goat Simulator, a humorous sandbox game featuring Tony Hawk Pro Skater-style combos and lots of goofs. The game is coming out in November indifferent assessment.
