Last Night, it was posted on LibertyCity.Net that Take-Two Interactive have once again gone after fans of the Grand Theft Auto series by sending them DMCA’S for mods that were created as far back as 2009. They also sent a copyright notice for someone uploading a save file.
Last night, it was revealed that Take-Two Interactive had sent DMCA strikes to remove some modifications to Liberty City, both in GTA IV, EFLC and GTA 3.
The Mods that were DMCA’d and removed were:
- GTA Advance PC port Beta 2 – This is a fan remake of GTA Advance that was put into Grand Theft Auto III, GTA Advance released in 2004 exclusively for Gameboy Advance and was developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Rockstar Games. Take-Two had nothing to do with this game.
- The Lost and Damned Unlocked for GTA 4 – This mod, was created and uploaded in early 2009, over 11 years ago. It allowed you to change Niko Bellic into Jonny klebitz, use his animations, put some LAD bikes into GTA 4 and much more.
- GTA IV EFLC The Lost And Damned (65%) – This isn’t even a mod, this is a game file for The Lost And Damned which allowed you to play the game at 65% completion, what are you doing Take Two?
There has been rumours and leaks circulating lately that indicate a GTA IV remaster is in the works due to release in 2023 which will include the story DLCS, Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost And Damned. Take-Two have been known to go after mods for games they are remaking as they basically released the GTA Trilogy by striking and harassing fans of the series.
