Rockstar is following a similar recent ban by Mojang and Minecraft. According to its official support site, a new set of guidelines has been posted that have the information that Cryptocurrencies and NFTs have been formally disallowed from Grand Theft Auto Online’s famous role-playing (RP) servers.
Rockstar Games Inc. is an American Video Game Company. The firm is best known for the Grand Theft Auto series, while its other well-known releases include Bully, L.A. Noire, and the Red Dead, Manhunt, Max Payne and Midnight Club series.
It must be noted that the fans have been operating role-playing servers for Grand Theft Auto V for years.
OTF Gaming said in a statement that “We’ve been asked to cease all operations of Trenches. We have no choice but to comply with their demands, as we intend to do right by Take-Two and Rockstar. We will be working with them to find an amicable solution to this matter.”
Rockstar Updated Policy on Mods to Cover RP Servers
Roleplaying or RP servers allow players to forge their own Minecraft experience while being presented with a theme of what the server will be like. And, in GTA roleplay is a multiplayer mod for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto.
In the official site of Rockstar it answered the question “Are Roleplay (RP) Servers Allowed?” in its article as “It has always believed in reasonable fan creativity and wants creators to showcase their passion for our games. Third party “Roleplay” servers are an extension of the rich array of community-created experiences within Grand Theft Auto that we hope will continue to thrive in a safe and friendly way for many years to come.”
The gaming firm added that the take-two’s legal enforcement policy will be aligned with its current PC Single-Player mods policy, with priority in enforcement actions focused on:
(i) misuse of Rockstar Games trademarks or game intellectual property (IP);
(ii) importation or misuse of other IP in the project:
(iii) commercial exploitation, or the use of cryptocurrencies or crypto assets (e.g. “NFTs”);
(iv) making new games, stories, missions, or maps; or
(v) interfering with our official multiplayer or online services, including Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online.
