Take-Two shoots down GTA V modding. Are we next?

Recommended Posts

So as GTA V fans have probably heard by now, Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar, the people who make GTA have sent a cease and desist letter to the creators of Open IV. Open IV is the biggest mod support... ummm... thing for GTA V. It's more or less the Module Manager of GTA. KSP was just acquired by Take-Two, so are we next? Let's make sure we aren't!

Really hope someone else makes something like KSP. All the evidence points to Take Two having a very poor regard for its fans and money being the only thing they truly care about, even at the cost of the game.

Doesn't @SQUAD get anymore say in what happens to the game anymore?  If so, wouldn't they stop it from happening? (I have 0 idea of how businesses work, so if I'm wrong I am srry)

Squad is now a developer working on contract to develop the KSP IP, which is property of Take Two. In theory, Take Two can do anything it wants, including removing Squad from developing KSP.

On the other hand, most of this is scaremongering based on a quite different situation in GTA.

Yes, and I would add that we need competition in this niche genre even regardless of the Take Two acquisition. KSP is great, but it's not going to be the be-all, end-all of space exploration sandboxes. I can already think of several things that would make the game better that haven't come to fruition. That's an opportunity for another game to come in and push the genre forward. That can only be good for us fans.

I suspect when we see the EULA for 1.3 we will have our answer...

Well, if TakeTwo does something stupid and removes the mods from KSP it's gonna kill the community.

There'd probably be uprisings. Murders, even.

But I doubt it will happen. KSP's main appeal for many people is how you can mod it to be pretty much anything you want.

This is basically fear mongering until we see an official press release from Take Two on this matter.

If they do that the game will become terrible- the reason it's so great and so popular is the mods
