Do you think the "Leaked" Map was deliberate or mistake?

So as many people have seen the new map, questions start to arise on how this possibly came...
Was it a attention seaking R* employee, a stolen copy or most likely leaked by R* deliberatly to keep us on our toes?

What do you think... i think R* did it deliberatly

Well it could have been deliberate, but I believe a warehouse worker snagged a copy. You know they have to be mass producing this game in the millions so I mean one copy gone doesn't seem to be a big deal. I would have rather of snagged the game instead though, not the map.

If it was deliberate, then we would not have received an email requesting removal of the images.

Don't forget the printers who produced the prints... There are always some extra ones. Some even go in the trash. One could easily get lost along the way..

With Rockstar being as notoriously discrete about releasing info, people will be even more motivated to defy them and bring material out in the light. You can't keep a production of this scale completely under wraps. There are too many people involved.

If some guy has snagged a copy of the game from somewhere as well as the map, he'll be stupid to play it. The temptation to play online would be too much and as soon as he tried, rockstar would be able to rumble him.

I think that there are certain things which publishers can do to ensure that their title gains the attention of the media. I don't think that the relatively small amount of coverage that the map debacle received would be worth the effort of trying to deliberately engineer a "leak".

Probably just someone at the place where they print the inserts for the game like the manual and the cover etc sneaked one out. This may not actually be the same place where they press the discs.
