GTA 6 makes giant leap forward as Rockstar makes major acquisitions.
Grand Theft Auto news can always excite fans, particularly when there’s news of an acquisition that promises to give GTA 6 an additional creative push.
We understand this announcement may cause great excitement among fans, so we will strive to give everyone enough time for celebration and enjoyment.
Cfx.re, the team behind GTA 5 mod and roleplaying communities FiveM and RedM, was acquired by Rockstar Games this week, signalling an exciting development: those creative minds responsible will now play an active role in its ongoing development process.
Rockstar announced in a press release that their creative community have found new ways to expand the potential of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2, including through dedicated roleplay servers. This development has delighted them immensely!
“Working alongside Cfx.re will allow us to develop new methods of supporting their incredible community while increasing services provided for developers and players alike.
Gaming mods have long been part of players’ experiences; yet not every developer or publisher welcomes them as an extension or improvement on existing content. Mods serve as a sign of appreciation that keep playing long after its debut – something GTA does so well!
Take-Two, Rockstars’ parent company, has actively taken measures against modders by issuing them DMCA notices – something one delighted fan exclaimed “IT’S A NEW ERA”.
Since Cfx.re has expanded their team with dedicated talent, there has been some speculation as to whether their involvement may extend beyond roleplaying servers and into GTA 6.
GTA 6 has been under development for almost 10 years, with developers taking great strides to ensure fans receive something meaningful for their patience and devotion.
At this stage, all we can do is speculate as Rockstar has left their announcement short and to the point. Their statement concluded with “we look forward to sharing more in the weeks and months ahead”, suggesting plans are well underway.
