There have been stories where it seemed that Rockstar was banning gamers that had singleplayer mods on GTA V. Rockstar has now come out to address the concerns of gamers. It turns out not to be entirely true. Rockstar answered a questions of concerned gamers and they addressed it on their own website.
The questions were:
**“I’m having soo much fun with GTAV on the PC but I just have one question about it, how come you are not allowing mods for it?” **
“Will I get banned from GTA Online for using a FoV Mod or Oculus Rift mod?” – @Mattophobia
Here is the answer rockstar gave to them:
“We have always appreciated the creative efforts of the PC modding community and we still fondly remember the awesome zombie invasion mod and original GTA map mod for GTAIV PC among many other classics. To be clear, the modding policy in our license has not changed and is the same as for GTAIV. Recent updates to GTAV PC had an unintended effect of making unplayable certain single player modifications. This was not intentional, no one has been banned for using single player modifications, and you should not worry about being banned or being relegated to the cheater pool just for using single player PC mods. Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways.”
It seems that a recent update banned players unintentional and it was a glitch in the system. They are not banning players for modding, it seems that it’s just an error on their end and will be fixed.
GTA V is the best selling game ever, by shattering all records. A GTA movie has been announced and it will still be relevant in years to come. Let us know what you think of this whole situation in the comments below.
