Take-Two DMCA Strike Hits GTA 5 and RDR 2 VR-mods

7 July 2022

Modder LukeRoss, the creator of VR mods for GTA 5, RDR 2 and Mafia, recently received a strike from copyright holder Take-Two Interactive. He asked the publisher for clarification, but in case of refusal or silence, he will need to remove his work.

I refuse to believe that is what Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. wants, because that would be an extremely anti-customer and anti-gamer move on their part. But I am not getting in a legal battle with them. If what they want is to assert their corporate dominance with gamers' interests as collateral damage, I have no power to stop them.

LukeRoss believes he has not infringed Take-Two's copyright. His mods require original versions of officially purchased copies to work.

That's a recall to a similar wave of strikes last year affected mods for GTA 3, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas. Here on LibertyCity we had to remove a number of modifications and even a harmless savefile from the site.

At that time, the strike was linked to the release of GTA: The Trilogy, and it seems Take-Two and Rockstar are now planning to release VR versions of their games.
