The firm donated the proceeds to a charity of the publishing big’s selection.
Video recreation big Take-Two Interactive killed a web site that distributed exploits for it GTA Online.
As Eurogamer found out“LunaCheats was terminated after” discussions “with – read: legal threats – the parent company Rockstar. As a result, Clothing closed its business, and its website said it would donate the proceeds from the sale of GTA Online cheats to charity Take-Two.
“After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, we instantly finish all upkeep, improvement and distribution of our cheat menu providers,” reads the LunaCheats website.
“We can even donate our proceeds to the Take-Two charity.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience our software program could have precipitated the GTA Online group.”
Cheating has long been a problem at GTA Online, as has any online experience. In 2016, Rockstar began resetting the characters of people caught in cheating – in their first offense – while in the second offense, players would see a total ban on the game.
Later that year, Rockstar began withdrawing game money from player accounts using mods and hacks.
The free GTA 5 distributed last year in the Epic Games store seemed to have resulted in severe cheating in GTA Online as well.
Take-Two is not the only triple-A giant to marry fraudsters. In early January, League of Legends and Valorant creator Riot Games and Destiny Bungie filed a lawsuit against GatorCheats, claiming the company had “massively and irreparably harmed” their companies.
