The game studio threatened legal action against Trusted Reviews over an article earlier this year revealing information taken from development notes on the Wild West title.

The article has now been replaced with an apology from the UK website, which read: "On February 6, 2018, we published an article that was sourced from a confidential corporate document.

"We should have known this information was confidential and should not have published it.

"We unreservedly apologise to Take-Two Games and we have undertaken not to repeat such actions again. We have also agreed to donate over £1 million to charities chosen by Take-Two Games."

Rockstar's parent company has said it will threaten legal action against any publications leaking confidential information.

In a statement to Variety, Take-Two said: "Take-Two takes security seriously and will take legal action against people or publications who leak confidential information.

"Because this situation involved information about Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Games directed the settlement funds to these three great charities: the American Indian College Fund, the American Prairie Reserve, and the First Nations Development Institute."
