A New York state court has today thrown out a lawsuit by Lindsay Lohan and Karen Gravano, who were attempting to sue Take-Two as they believed that their likenesses had been used without their permission in Grand Theft Auto V.
A leaked map from the game is allegedly genuine according to various sources. The image, which first saw its way onto NeoGAF before being removed by the original poster, appeared to show a number of new areas and locations. However, many forum users were skeptical of whether it was genuine. TechRadar though have spoken to a well-placed insider at Rockstar Games who has verified that the map is genuine and is from a recent build of the title.
Take-Two is one of the big publishers in the gaming industry, and yet, the year 2015 was relatively quiet from them. They had certain big titles, and releases, but not as big as many have expected from them. In an interview with MCV, CEO Strauss Zelnick talked about the upcoming year, and what Take-Two’s goal is for their company:
In a somewhat shocking twist, Take-Two has announced that Borderlands Online, which was set to be a free-to-play online shooter to come out this year in China (not unlike Call of Duty Online) has been cancelled. And, 2K China, the developer of the game, has been shut down as well.
While Rockstar have done an excellent job of keeping Grand Theft Auto V fresh and updated with a variety of new content since it was released, it has failed to deliver on a request from many fans who want story-based DLC. The studio even teased news about story mode content in April, leading many fans to believe that new missions were on the way. However, that DLC never arrived and it now appears that the game might never see any additional content focused on the story.
Earlier this week Take Two, publisher for the Grand Theft Auto and Borderlands series’ and other games under the Rockstar and 2K Games labels, announced their Quarter 4 2013 financial reports. The reports provided confirmation that GTA V has now shipped a colossal 33 million copies and reached more than $1 billion in sales as well as impressive sales figures for Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite, shipping 9 million and 6 million units respectively.
