Today brings good news for Grand Theft Auto V modding! OpenIV has been able to work out their issues with Rockstar and Take-Two. The development team will be able to continue their decade long project as it was. The team has insisted that OpenIV has never interfered with Grand Theft Auto Online and never will, thus making it compliant with Rockstar’s modding policy. The return of OpenIV in its original state is vindication for the OpenIV team.
Unfortunately, it is not a complete victory. The Return to Liberty City project that looked to import Grand Theft Auto IV’s Liberty City to Grand Theft Auto V has been canned as Rockstar has deemed the project to be in violation of their modding policy. The needs of the Return to Liberty City project was driving development on OpenIV, so the team is currently reevaluating the development road map of OpenIV itself.
