Publisher Take-Two has started removing modifications for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The reason given is copyright infringement, although the mods have been available to the general public for years. It is speculated that an announcement regarding Grand Theft Auto is about to be made.
It has now been ten years since Rockstar Games officially announced Grand Theft Auto 5 in cooperation with publisher Take-Two Interactive. Since then there have been small rumors about a direct successor from time to time, but there is still nothing tangible to this day. A possible Grand Theft Auto 6 would undoubtedly be an absolute bestseller. A procedure by the publisher now gives rise to hope that an announcement will be made soon.
Take-Two removes GTA mods: is GTA 6 causing it?
As we reported earlier, Take-Two had started removing modifications for Grand Theft Auto 5. These mods related to integrating the maps from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas into the modern shooter. Now the publisher is apparently going even further and is even removing mods for the two video game classics. Specifically, it’s about GTA Underground, for example, a modification that combines the maps from Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, San Andreas as well as Manhunt and Bully.
It also hit the PC ports of Vice City Stories and Liberty City Stories. An HD modification for Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is also no longer available. It is unclear why Take-Two is starting to release copyright injunctions years after these mods were first released. The community sees this as further confirmation that, firstly, Grand Theft Auto 6 will not be so long in coming and, secondly, has a direct connection to Vice City or even San Andreas.
