Rockstar Stops GTA: San Andreas Production
As a result of the “Hot Coffee” mods for GTA: San Andreas, the rating on the game was raised by the ESRB from Mature 17+ to Adults Only 18+.
Rockstar Games has ceased manufacturing of the current version of the title and will begin working on a version of the game with enhanced security to prevent the “hot coffee” modifications. This version will retain the original ESRB M-rating and is expected to be available during the Company’s fourth fiscal quarter. Rockstar Games will be providing AO labels for retailers who wish to continue to sell the current version of the title.
Rockstar is also said to begin working soon on a more secure version to prevent modification of GTA: San Andreas for PC.
