Take-Two is going after GTA modders and specifically targeting GTA IV mods. The company has issued multiple DMCA takedowns in the past week resulting in a handful of long-running mods disappearing off marketplaces. While this behaviour is nothing new from Take-Two, they have become extremely forceful in the past few weeks which many believe is due to the company working on a GTA Remastered Collection.
LibertyCity.net is the latest site hit by Take-Two. They hold a number of mods for older GTA games. The site mainly supports bringing older GTA game elements into the latest instalment. This includes assets, maps, gameplay elements and more.

The site published the DMCA takedown notice to the public where Take-Two has demanded the content be removed from the marketplace. According to LibetyCity.net, Take-Two focused on the removal of eight mods. It reads:
“Take-Two Interactive requested to remove modifications for GTA games from LibertyCity. The publisher claimed these mods with DMCA strikes.”
Many believe that the latest DMCA strikes are linked to the possibility that Take-Two is working on GTA remasters. The company confirmed this week that they are currently working on new versions of three previously released games. However, they did not share what games. We know that GTA V is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S and will run at 4K 60FPS. So that is one of them.
There have also been rumours of a Red Dead Redemption 2 Enhanced Edition in the works for the newer consoles too. That is number two. The last game might be a remaster of an older GTA. It could be GTA IV, GTA San Andreas, we have no idea at the moment. With that being said, everything we have seen and heard so far points to a re-release of a classic game. “Classic” could mean Vice City too?
