Take-Two has been issuing takedowns for GTA mods

Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company, played whack-a-mole earlier this year with reverse-engineered versions Grand Theft Auto 3 & Vice City. In the past week, the publisher issued DMCA takedown notices to GTA 5 map mods such as Vice City Overhaul and multiple popular mods from earlier games in this series.
GTA: Liberty City was a complete conversion that made GTA 3’s setting into Vice City’s engine. It was released for the first time in 2005. It is no longer available on ModDB. Vice Cry, which was responsible for replacing Vice City’s textures with models and models with higher resolution versions, has also been removed. GTA: Underground is also gone. It combined maps from GTA 3 and Vice City with those of San Andreas and Rockstar games Bully and Manhunt 2. Then, it added gang warfare. Mods are also converting San Andreas to ports of the console-exclusive Liberty City Stories or Vice City Stories. This is not all.
GTAForums thread has been documenting the removals. It also notes that Rockstar’s statement regarding singleplayer mods was quietly updated in 2019. This statement, which was made in 2017 during the debate over OpenIV modding tool, was initially recorded in 2017. Many modders assumed it would protect their work. It now states that the statement does not cover the “use or importation of any IP (including Rockstar IP) in this project” nor the “making of new games, stories or missions”. These clauses were not in the original Rockstar statement. However, they can be found in our news story.

Take-Two is now pursuing these mods because one of them, it is worth mentioning again, is 16 years. The internet is split between two theories. They are seen as competition for hypothetically remastered versions GTA 3 Vice City and San Andreas. It’s also connected to recent rumors regarding GTA 6.
