Rockstar Games and Take-Two have successfully applied for a search warrant and seizure with the Australian government regarding five cheaters in GTA Online.
The five cheaters are involved in the now offline software ‘Infamous’. With this illegal software, players in GTA Online could receive an unfair advantage in several ways over normal players. For example, it was possible to get unlimited money, weapons, items and health, kill every player at will and suddenly teleport to another location. At that time, the software was sold for forty dollars. Below you can see how the software works in the online mode of GTA 5.
The actions of Rockstar and Take-Two state that the Australian legal court has seized the finances of the suspects. Currently, the suspects have not yet reported to be defended. It concerns the suspects Christopher Anderson, Cyrus Lesser, Sfinktah, Koroush Anderson and Koroush Jeddian. This five are now prevented from further cheating in the game and, in addition to basic needs, no money can be withdrawn from their bank accounts.
Based on the actions of the players, it is now expected that Rockstar and Take-Two will probably sue the players for copyright infringement and claim financial compensation for this.
Earlier it became known that several employees had expressed themselves about the working conditions at Rockstar Games during the development of Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar was overwhelmed with criticism after it became known that employees made 100-hour work weeks to get the game on time. Shortly thereafter followed a statement by Dan Houser who said that these times only applied to a small group of people who voluntarily continued to work on it.
