Take-Two Shuts Down Another Popular GTA V Tool
A couple of days ago, Rockstar Games' parent company Take-Two shocked the world when the popular GTA 5 mod OpenIV was shut down. Apparently, it did not stop there, as few more modding tools and/or software are closing due to the company's decision. Here is everything about it in a nutshell.
According to Kotaku, the next GTA 5 tool to have closed is Force Hax, a PC modding menu that is subscription based. Basically, players will have to pay a certain amount of money for a certain amount of time in order to utilize the software. Unfortunately for the creators, they will have to remove their work.
Interestingly, Take-Two did not just ask the developers to remove their product. They were also asked to apologize publicly, something that did not really please the community. Either that, their work to provide services for the game's players are over.
Force Hax allows players to utilize their mod menu system for multiple kinds of things in GTA 5. This includes gifting themselves with boatloads of money. They can even freeze and even kick people straight from the game. Above all, they have the chance to steal money from other players of the game. These all made the tool among the popular ones in the community, as reported by Eurogamer.
The developers of the aforementioned GTA 5 tool reportedly met with the representatives of Take-Two. After a couple of discussions, they were asked to cease all "maintenance, development and distribution" of the cheating tool. Apparently, all the profits they acquired will be donated to a charity designated by Rockstar Games' parent company. It remains a mystery as to what or which charity this is, though.
BBC notes that accessing Force Hax now redirects to a blank page, with a statement discussing what went through with their talks with Take-Two. It should be noted that following the closure of several modding tools, the fanbase took to themselves to complain on various forums and social media sites. In fact, GTA 5 on Steam continuously receives "Mostly Negative" reviews.
