The GTA V cheat developers behind “Infamous” have had their assets frozen surrounding a recent legal case.
Infamous, the cheat in question, was a mod menu that was accessible in GTA Online. It gave players access to a wealth of additional in-game currency, vehicles, weapons and game mods that violated the game’s T&Cs.
The court order, which was filed last month, targeted the five-person group requesting that they be prohibited from making more cheating software. Additionally, they have had all digital and cryptocurrency assets frozen.
The order reads:
“You must not remove from Australia or in any way dispose of, or deal with or diminish the value of any assets in Australia (Australian assets) up to the unencumbered value of AU$286,609.90 (the Relevant Amount)”
Published by TorrentFreak, a report states that the freezing order has been extended due to a follow-up order. Infamous’ developers have yet to file any defense in response to the legal issues.
Rockstar and Take-Two do not take cheaters lightly, especially when it comes to such a big money-maker like GTA. In 2015, there was a GTA modder who had two private investigators turn up at his house per Take-Two’s orders. So, if you make cheats for GTA V – watch out.
