Hot on the heels of shutting down a totally harmless single player mod tool set, OpenIV, Take-Two has finally set their sights on the actual problem in GTA Online.

Force Hax was one of the go to modding tools that cheaters and griefers used in GTA Online. Take-Two forced Force Hax to cease all distribution of the cheat menu and to donate their proceeds to charity.
“After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, effective immediately we are ceasing all maintenance, development and distribution of the Force Hax cheat menu services. We will be donating our proceeds to charity and we apologize for any and all problems Force Hax services have caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online community.”

Specifics as to which charity will benefit from the money were not revealed. It was also not revealed just how much money would be going to charity from Force Hax. Force Hax did charge users $15 a month for players to use, so it could end up being a tidy sum once all is said and done.
