Sounds fancy, hmm? Take-2 have announced that staff from the FTC’s division of advertising practices have launched an investigation into advertising claims made for GTA San Andreas.
Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive regret that consumers may have been exposed to content that was not intended to be accessible in the playable version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The Company has taken significant steps to remedy this situation, including halting production of the current version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and has begun working on a version of the game that will not contain the elements used to enable the “hot coffee” modification. Going forward, the Company will refine the process by which it edits games and will enhance the protection of its game code to prevent such future modifications.
Take-Two Interactive recognizes and takes seriously its responsibility to ensure that its games are rated and marketed appropriately. The Company will continue to support and promote the ESRB rating system to help keep mature-themed video game content out of the hands of children.
