Last week We shared the good news that the source code for Grand Theft Autos III & Vice city was reverse engineered so people could port the games and come up with cool new mods. Now we bring you the predictable news that publisher Take-Two Interactive is not happy.
The company, which in this case specifically lists itself as the “parent company of Rockstar Games”, has issued a DMCA acceptance notice to github. Remove the reverse engineered games from the software site.
Of course, this does not end the project. As Take-Two is no doubt fully aware, it is out there
I’m really looking forward to the next cool and interesting port or mod made with this code when we can repeat the cycle all over again.
