When it comes to blockchain, NFTs or crypto in general, there is a lot of discussion and controversy. Accordingly, when it comes to marketing, some companies would be well advised to distance themselves from these terms as much as possible. An example of this approach would currently be Rockstar and accordingly Take-Two-Interactive. Crypto and Co. was recently commented on in relation to GTA Online servers. Specifically, the question was asked whether roleplay servers were actually allowed. Rockstar not only takes the opportunity to confirm this, but also to clarify that cryptocurrencies have no place on the servers. Specifically, the sale of “loot boxes” or virtual currencies, as well as the implementation of NFTs is not permitted. Failure to comply with these requirements could result in legal action. In addition, the usual copyright points are repeated here, which are also part of the single-player mod policy.
The restrictions that apply to community content are not the first to cause a stir. Finally, the website The Gamer emphasizes that Rockstar has already taken one or the other fan project off the net. These are mostly fan games or remakes of the GTA series. Nevertheless, it’s not as if the modding around GTA 5 (buy now / 26.98 €) or the interest in the game is idle, on the contrary.
