'GTA Online' Cheat Website Shut Down, Proceeds Going To Charity

A massive Grand Theft Auto Online cheats website has shut down after conversations with Take Two. The site, LunaCheats, known for selling hacks to players has shut down after "discussions" with the publisher, and has promised all proceeds from the site to go towards charities of Take Two's choosing.

Surprise, surprise, GTA: Online has had its fair share of hackers. Shocking, I know - some good old sarcasm for you there. But in all seriousness, GTA: Online hasn't just had a little bit of a hacking problem, it's been a massive deal for the community as long as the game has been running. Although there are those that can develop their own cheats - many others have bought cheats and mods from websites to allow them to gain unfair advantages in-game.

Now one of the biggest of those sites, LunaCheats, seems to have been targeted by Take Two to at least stop some players having easy access to cheating tools, according to Eurogamer. Take Two is the parent company of Rockstar and after this sudden change of heart from LunaCheats, we're assuming its legal team made some pretty convincing arguments in the discussions that took place.

If you visit LunaCheats.org now, this message is the only thing that appears on the site: "After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, we are immediately ceasing all maintenance, development, and distribution of our cheat menu services. We will also be donating our proceeds to a charity designated by Take-Two. We apologize for any and all problems our software has caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online community."

It's good that Take Two has taken some kind of action against the sites that are causing problems for so many players who want to appreciate GTA Online without other players cheating. Previously it has reset cheaters accounts as a warning, but this will deter cheaters further. It's not going to completely stop the appearances of those cheaters, we're sure you'll keep seeing them here and there - I mean people went to stupid lengths to cheat in even Fall Guys if you remember that part of lockdown. At least this might help stem the issue though.
