GTA V Multiplayer (GTA:MP)

Are you serious ?

GTA-MP

GTA:MP is a free alternative massively multiplayer modifications for Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto © V, which allows you to play with your friends over Internet or LAN.

Please note that the modification is still in development, an initial release will follow in 2015.

EDIT (10 November, 2015):

What we read on gta-mp.net website on 10 November, 2015:

Time to say goodbye

Saying goodbye doesn’t mean anything. It’s the time we spent together that matters, not how we left it.

Hello Folks,

today, we write you broken-hearted.

Take2 Interactive Inc. have contacted us and they asked us to stop GTA:Multiplayer, because from Take2’s point of view GTA:MP is a rival of their business. Grand Theft Auto and all its content is produced by Rockstar Games Inc. and published and owned by Take2 Interactive Inc. We, as developers, respect other developer’s intellectual property and their legitimate interests. Rockstar’s developers have invested so much time to create this beautiful game. We have repeatedly stated our position: We are not going to cross this line, we won’t damage them.

This was not an easy descision to make, because we have worked more than 2 years on GTA:Multiplayer. A lot of new friendships are created through it and we all have learned a lot during that time.

We clearly see that this may not only result in problems for us, the mod creators, it even may result in a Social Club ban for you, and this is something we do not want to be responsible for. We always respected the copyright of others, and we will not stop doing so.

And thats their right. And rightfully. They have to protect their own interests and those they have planed for GTA:O and further GTA games.

This may sound now that we never got supported and everything is a lie. If you think so now, that’s not true. We were in contact with Rockstar Games and got feedback from them. But you have to see that Take2 Interactive Inc. is the publisher and Rockstar Games only the developer.

We have never endorsed piracy, infact we encouraged the buying of the game and never touched Rockstar Social Club as other modifications did or still do.

We had a great time being able to develop GTA:Multiplayer, we implemented Javascript and Node.js with a dynamic Scripting system which supports all OOP scripting languages, Chromium Embedded Framework, own network library and more.

All we ever wanted is to increase the expierence and gameplay feeling of Grand Theft Auto V, we tried, we did our best, we were close to a release, but unfortunately we were not able to make it.

May a lot of you now think everything was a lie, scam and whatever, but watch our last video and see the prove, that we weren’t fake and that we were really close:

We will not release source code as other people could use the program code to create a GTA:Multiplayer clone and we would cause more problems for the community. This is not something we want and ever wanted to be GTA:Multiplayer.

The last section is the diffcult one. We have to say good bye. But before we are going to become a memory, we want to say “Thank you!” to everyone,namely we thank:

- Rockstar Games (for the beautiful game)
- The Chromium Team
- The Chromium Embedded Framework Team
- The Node.js Team
- The Bass Library Team
- Valve (Steam)
- NTAuthority (even if we … let’s say we had our problems)
- The whole community spending a lot of time and money into this project.

Good bye, may the force be with you,
ex GTA:MP Team
