Its a specific mod and a specific reason, as long as everything is communicated properly not much to see here.

Wow, so they were not milking this enough and making enough money?? There is a breaking point. They just found it.

Rockstar's response was total crap. You would think these companies would learn by now not to piss off the PC community. It always ends badly.

Tons of people bought the game just BECAUSE it had mod support, just like GTA IV and San Andreas before it. So yes, once prospective customers read these negative reviews and see that modding is basically dead, they won't buy the game, and thus that's less money for R*. The only reason Cockstar doesn't see killing mod support as a bad thing is because of the insane money they get from microtransactions, which are only relevant due to the absurdly inflated virtual economy in the game where everything is ludicrously overpriced just to force people to either spend hours/days grinding for one thing or just buy a Cash Card to get it instantly.

Ya but potential customers who wanted mods already own the game, and Rockstar doesn't give a shit about pc Anyway, they sell way more games on consoles.
