GTA Online Cheats Site Shuts Down Following Pressure from Take-Two

The popular GTA Online cheats website LunaCheats, known for selling game-breaking mods for the title, has shut down, Eurogamer reports.

The move comes following “discussions” with Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of GTA developers Rockstar.

Visitors to the site will now be greeted with nothing but a message explaining the move, as well as an apology:

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.

While it operated, the site was a veritable treasure trove of GTA Online cheats and mods for the game. Some of the most notorious ones allowed players to spawn countless numbers of vehicles, crashing servers in the process.

Despite being almost eight years old, the game has maintained a dedicated player base since first launching on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. It’s even slated to get yet another rerelease on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year.

Given the title’s popularity, this isn’t the first time that GTA Online cheats have been a serious problem. Just a few months ago, Rockstar reportedly began wiping the in-game bank accounts of certain players for exploiting a money-making glitch.
