Take-Two issued a DMCA claim over GTA5, RDR2, and Mafia VR mods


Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive has sent a DMCA takedown to the modder responsible for making Grand Theft Auto 5, Red Dead Redemption 2, and the complete Mafia trilogy playable in VR.

As modder Luke Ross explained on Patreon (opens in new tab), “They are demanding that I remove all their copyrighted works from my Patreon page.” Which came as a surprise since, as he says, “none of my modifications are built using software belonging to Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc, and the modifications are not intended to replace their games, nor are they a means of exploiting Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc’s proprietary IP or assets.”
