According to mod author Luke Ross, T2 has issued a DMCA removal request to him, asking him to remove all VR mods for related games, such as GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Mafia: Definitive Edition, Luke Ross said this Essentially means that all mod development has to stop.
However, Luke Ross still wants to try to fight back against the DMCA takedown request. He said in a statement that he had asked Take-Two for clarification on the removal, as the mods themselves did not use copyrighted works from the company.
He said in a statement: “None of the modifications I have made use T2’s software, nor are they intended to replace their games, nor are they intended to take advantage of T2’s proprietary intellectual property or assets. All my modifications require Users to buy and own the game before adding my mods.”
T2 itself hasn’t made any official statement about the DMCA takedown request, but the reason for the request is likely that those interested in VR mods must subscribe to Luke Ross’ Patreon (for a fee). Generally speaking, as long as mods are not for profit, game companies will turn a blind eye.
