GTA 5 Multiplayer Mod Shut Down By Take-Two

It was a good mod, so this is a shame.

GTA 5 Online

Rockstar have already been a bit iffy when it comes to mods for Grand Theft Auto V’s PC version. Their issue is with anything that may compromise the multiplayer mode of the game, GTA: Online, by introducing possible cheats or exploits, or by undermining the game’s economy, or possibly provide an alternative to it.

So it should not come as a surprise to anybody that Rockstar have shut down GTA: Multiplayer, a mod for the game that had been in development for almost two years now. “Take2 Interactive Inc. have contacted us and they asked us to stop GTA:Multiplayer, because from Take2’s point of view GTA:MP is a rival of their business,” the mod’s development team said. “Grand Theft Auto and all its content is produced by Rockstar Games Inc. and published and owned by Take2 Interactive Inc. We, as developers, respect other developer’s intellectual property and their legitimate interests. Rockstar’s developers have invested so much time to create this beautiful game. We have repeatedly stated our position: We are not going to cross this line, we won’t damage them.,” the team said on its website.

It is a shame, really. I imagine the mod might have been pretty great, if the video below is anything to go by.
