The Red Dead Redemption map mod has now been canceled for GTA 5. This mod was bound to redesign the map of the wild west game in Grand Theft Auto V. This information was unveiled last month. Nevertheless, the mod team White has scheduled a beta release for this summer. After the team of developers has launched the teaser trailer, Mr. Leisurewear, the lead modder, stated that the team would cancel the project.
Game developers from team.White decided to cancel the Red Dead Redemption map mode for GTA 5
Mr. Leisurewear posted on GTAForums.com that he was disappointed to announce that the project will no longer be developed. He thanked the fans in the name of the whole developmental team for their support. He argued that they are shutting down the project because they were contacted, but he did not mention by whom. Later, Mr. Leisurewear admitted that the team was approached by Take Two.
Nevertheless, he felt the need to clarify all the fans due to some confusion. He stated that the Red Dead Redemption platform was never going to become a PC port. The new Red Dead Redemption V was bound to be a map. But he explained that undergoing this new project with extra content that needed to be ported over was never possible.
Fans of the game were disappointed after having their hopes up when thinking about the boost of GTA 5
The team of developers intended to just convert the map by using the legal copied of both GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption, also adding some custom scripted content. Mr. Leisurewear argues that their plan has never included any mention related to porting a story mode over from Red Dead Redemption to GTA 5. Some disappointed forum users stated that Mr. Leisurewear should stick to his team’s files.
Nevertheless, Mr. Leisurewear claimed that he would not give up to three years of work. However, if he chooses or not to hold on to his files, this does not mean that fans will enjoy something positive since they hope to use the new map in GTA 5. When talking about his files, he addressed the team.White because some forum members asked Mr. Leisurewear to launch the RDR 5 map mod for GTA 5 to boost the game.
He argued that when it comes to the.White toolkit, he is not allowed to release anything because he will most likely get a lawsuit for that. It is pretty frustrating for fans when such a thing happens because they come up with several ideas which have never been explored before, and then they find out that everything was canceled.
