Heading to the Force Hax website now brings up a message from the developers that states: "After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, effective immediately we are ceasing all maintenance, development and distribution of the Force Hax cheat menu services". The creators of other modding tools, such as "Menyoo" and "Force Hax, " have received similar letters, however these modding tools were being used specifically to influence Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode. As a result, people would often look for more ways to make the game interesting, and the most popular feature that gamers found was being able to create mods, especially for "GTA V".

"So, we chose to agree with their claims and we're stopping distribution of OpenIV".

Rockstar defended the decision, saying OpenIV enabled "malicious mods" in GTA Online.

As can be expected, Take-Two's move has angered numerous game's fanbase with some even swearing to never buy a game from the publisher ever again.

The Crew 2 Announced; Cars, Airplanes And Boats!
Ubisoft's The Crew 2 , is, uh, a little different than what we expected, but we definitely like what we see. The game is still early in development so we will be getting more details as the year progresses.

We've requested comment from Take-Two about this controversy and will update as we hear more. People have been using it for around a decade - at this point it's a cornerstone of the modding scene.

They also claim they are working on this issue so that they can "support the creative community" without hurting other players.

Will there actually be fewer cheaters in GTA Online now?

And for quite some time both Rockstar and Take-Two the game's publisher excepted and embraced this.

Take-Two sent a cease-and-desist letter to the developers behind the OpenIV modding tool. At the time of writing, only 13% of the 39,936 reviews offered in the last 30 days have been positive. A Change.org petition calling for Take-Two to reverse course on OpenIV has attracted more than 50,000 signatures so far. The fans anger has even started to affect the game's ranking on Steam with negative reviews flooding the Grand Theft Auto V's Steam page.
