Take-Two shuts down Red Dead Redemption mod for Grand Theft Auto V

White Team shared yesterday the first trailer for its Red Dead Redemption mod for Grand Theft Auto V. This mod was aiming to port the whole Red Dead Redemption map – from the X360 version of the game – to the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. However, Take-Two got in touch with this modding team and shut it down.

As White Team’s Mr. Leisurewear stated:

“I know this is hard pill to swallow, but as you may have noticed we did get contacted , and we sadly have to say we are stopping this project.”

As Leisurewear claimed, this project was never meant to be a proper total conversion (with single-player story elements) mod for GTA V. It was just a map for GTA V, with various scripted content, and nothing more. As such, we are a bit puzzled as to why Take-Two decided to shut it down, especially since there are similar mods/maps for GTA V out there.

“We were only gonna get a way to convert the map with both legal copies of each game , and some custom scripted additional content , there was never any intention or mention to either port a storymode over from RDR to V.”
