Take-Two sues maker GTA V multiplayermod to




The developer of the Grand Theft Auto V multiplayermod FiveM may be sued by Take-Two, publisher of the game. That is claimed by several users and a moderator on the subreddit mod.

The FiveM-subreddit in a post displayed a screenshot of an IRC conversation in which the developer would make the assertion. Also a moderator of the subreddit asserts that “FiveM down thanks to Take-Two. In addition, the FiveM-‘s website is currently unreachable and its game servers for the mod from the air. Mod developer ntauthy themselves are yet to find any statements on the subreddit. In November claimed the FiveM developer and that of another mod also that Take-Two private detectives along their houses had sent in an attempt to convince them to put the work stops. The second modmaker responsible for the mod GTA: Multiplayer, has since responded to.

On the part of Take-Two, there is no message or other sign that confirms that the developers actually been visited by private investigators and that there is now a lawsuit brought against the FiveM-dev.

Rockstar Games has previously stated that it sees no problem with the use of single player mods for the game but that multiplayer mods are not allowed because it can cause disruption of the game experience for all players. For this reason multiplayermodmakers bans in the past received from the online portion of the game, even if it just involves separate online environments where other players by definition can suffer from the mod. You may also play there financial considerations along for the publisher and developer; Grand Theft Auto Online contains micro transactions in the form of shark cards. These are not part of the multiplayer environments created by, among other things, the maker of FiveM.
