Force Hax, the GTA Online cheat tool, has been shut down by Take-Two

Force Hax shut down

Take-Two has targeted another GTA V mod after shutting down the popular OpenIV tool. In this case, however, the mod is perhaps a little more deserving. Force Hax is a modding menu that’s used to cheat in GTA Online, not only giving users infinite money, but messing with other players too. 

Get your fill of the best sandbox games on PC.

If you try to visit the Force Hax website now, all you get is a statement from the mod’s developers. “After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, effective immediately we are ceasing all maintenance, development and distribution of the Force Hax cheat menu services. We will be donating our proceeds to charity and we apologize for any and all problems Force Hax services have caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online community.”

Force Hax was not free, and users were charged $15 to use the cheat tool, which explains why Take-Two is making the creators donate to charity. What charity that might be, and how much money will be donated, isn’t clear.

Given that Force Hax and OpenIV aren’t the only tools that alter GTA, more mods could soon find themselves victims of the purge.

Cheers, Kotaku.
