Several new GTA titles have already come out, however, GTA III continues to have a large fan base, as do titles such as Vice City and San Andreas. That is why they are of great interest to some developers, such as those who are trying to reverse engineer these video games. However, the DMCA policy of GitHub has once again removed these jobs from the platform.
For those who still do not know what that policy is DMCA that has affected these projects on GTA (Grand Theft Auto), it is a function applied on the Digital Millennium Copyright Law with which the open source platform can remove pages or content reported or of which you do not own of the rights.
Remember that the GTA III saga, Vice City and San Andreas they are still very active, and some have reverse-engineered them to continue exploiting them beyond what Rock Star allowed. However, for the second time, they have already been removed from the GitHub code repository and now the page shows a public DMCA notice showing Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP performing for Take-Two Interactive Software.
The deletion of all repositories was requested, including any bifurations of this code and a recent lawsuit against the developers involved in this project. The first time it was withdrawn, counterclaims were filed to recover them, but now we will have to wait for what is legally decided. But it is very likely that this content will not be available again.
In addition, some rumors and leaks point to a relaunch by Take-Two of a product titled Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, which could include the remastered titles GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas. So you try to protect intellectual property and protect your business so that gamers buy the real games.
Take-Two has a well-known track record against mods for these titles and more modern ones, and it's all about getting a better handle on these products.
