Rockstar has announced that they have acquired Cfx.re, the creators of the popular GTA Online roleplay servers, FiveM.
In an official statement, Rockstar Games states that they have “watched with excitement as Rockstar’s creative community have found new ways to expand the possibilities of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2, particularly through the creation of dedicated roleplay servers”.
To further support these efforts, Rockstar have decided to expand their policy on mods by officially including those made by the roleplay creative community.
“By partnering with the Cfx.re team, we will help them find new ways to support this incredible community and improve the services they provide to their developers and players.” Rockstar continued.
This announcement comes as a surprise, given Rockstar’s previous stance of banning users associated with FiveM. (per WCCFtech)
However, this is a positive development nonetheless, as it could lead to improvements for the mod and roleplay community in GTA Online, as well as potentially bringing exciting new features to the highly anticipated GTA 6.
FiveM is a modification for Grand Theft Auto V that enables users to play GTA Online on customized dedicated servers.
Similarly, RedM serves the same purpose but is designed for Red Dead Redemption 2.
In recent years, these mods have gained massive popularity among GTA fans as it allows them to experience features not found on the base game such as custom cars, clothes and changes to the map.
