OpenIV development will continue
It’s been a wild ride with disputes between Take-Two and the OpenIV modding team. However, the popular modding tool that was recently shut down has received a new update, indicating that support may continue.
Granted, the update is just a few small tweaks, but that’s a pretty big deal in light of the cease and desist the team received. In an interview with PC Gamer, Rockstar said they are talking to the lead developer of OpenIV which is more than likely the reason for the update.
This is in response to the excellent ratings of GTA V on Steam being plummeted down to the “mostly negative” status in just a few days. That combined with fan backlash has, no wonder, caused Rockstar and Take-Two to reconsider.
We’ll wait for a statement which I expect will be coming soon. You can check out OpenIV here.
