Cfx.re, the team behind FiveM for GTA Online, have released a lengthy statement discussing the future of the service and more.
Rockstar Games purchased the group in August for an undisclosed fee. This revelation shocked the GTA and wider gaming community because Take-Two, Rockstar’s parent company, have been hostile to modders now they’re purchasing them.
Many questions have been raised by the GTA Online and GTA RP community on how this will impact servers using FiveM and even GTA Online and GTA 6.
First things Rockstar have assisted with
Cfx.re say they have been very busy getting settled inside of Rockstar Games. Both the FiveM team and Rockstar want to make the service “the best it can be”.
To start with, Rockstar have helped with “improving the overall stability of our infrastructure to ensure as little downtime as possible, as well as making efforts to upgrade our customer support experience”. It also has opened the door for them to use new tools that will sort out some security issues.
As of now, there is no intention to make significant changes to FiveM/RedM and how it is ran. The terms of service has also been updated to be inline with Rockstar Games’ policies.
What does the future hold?
The group over at Cfx.re share they’ve been able to discuss the future of FiveM at length with Rockstar. It’s all about improvements and this covers both RedM for Red Dead Redemption 2 and FiveM for GTA V. More details will come at a later date according to the community notice, which could be in next month’s blog post.
It’s claimed Rockstar Games are not restricting freedom. Plus they really just want to grow FiveM and this will be done by adding even more features.
