The GTA V modding community was dismayed to find out that Take-Two had sent a cease and desist letter to the team behind the OpenIV modding tool yesterday.
There has been no explanation for the sudden action from Take-Two but Rockstar has responded to PCGamer stating:
“Take-Two’s actions were not specifically targeting single player mods. Unfortunately, OpenIV enables recent malicious mods that allow harassment of players and interfere with the GTA Online experience for everybody. We are working to figure out how we can continue to support the creative community without negatively impacting our players.”
The statement is quite vague, and considering OpenIV has been around for a number of years, you have to wonder why they have only taken action now. It’s also highly unlikely that OpenIV would to be the go-to tool some someone that want’s to “interfere” with GTA Online.
