Curious action: Community team behind RPG servers for GTA 5 and RDR 2 now “part of Rockstar”

Curious action: Community team behind RPG servers for GTA 5 and RDR 2 now

Rockstar Games, the studio behind the games Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2, has announced a surprise acquisition: In a press release, the company announced that it is the team behind Cfx.re take over. This is responsible for the role-playing servers FiveM and RedM, which expand GTA 5 and RDR 2 with significantly expanded role-playing mechanics. This concept is very popular: Currently, for example, almost 120,000 players are online on FiveM alone.

Strange turnaround

Despite the immense popularity of the mods, the purchase comes as a surprise, especially since Rockstar Games torpedoed the project in 2015: At that time, some FiveM developers were banned from the Social Club. The initially negative attitude towards the project has now apparently changed, which can certainly also be explained by the high number of players.

As part of the change of heart, the mod policy was relaxed, so mods like FiveM and RedM are officially allowed. With the acquisition of Cfx.re, Rockstar Games now also wants to support the work of the community team. In the coming weeks and months there will be more details about what will result from the cooperation with Cfx.re.

This should make it clear that there should be at least some changes as a result of the takeover. It remains to be seen to what extent these will affect FiveM and RedM. For example, a stronger monetization of the role-playing server would be conceivable, or a more solid cooperation in order to offer corresponding projects for future games like GTA 6.
