Lil Durk‘s OTF Gaming stopped running its Grand Theft Auto roleplay server called “The Trenches” because Rockstar Games asked them to.

Take-Two Interactive, which owns Rockstar Games, has made rules about using cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens in the Grand Theft Auto video game stricter. After receiving a warning from the law, “The Trenches” server was shut down at Lil Durk’s OTF Gaming.
OTF Gaming said in a statement, “We have no choice but to comply with their requests as we desire to do right by Take-Two and Rockstar.” [T]hey have given us no other option. “We will be working with them to find a way to resolve this issue on friendly terms,”

Since last week, Rockstar Games and Take-Two have prohibited the use of cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens in Grand Theft Auto V roleplay servers. Lil Durk once worked with Exceed Talent Capital to offer NFTs and loot boxes on his roleplay server as a way to make money from it. Fans could buy a “Trenches All-Access Pass” that would give them instant access to the server and loot boxes.

According to the regulation of Take-Two, servers such as Lil Durk‘s are not allowed to engage in “commercial exploitation,” which includes the selling of “loot boxes” for real-world cash or the in-game equivalent. In addition to this, it makes it illegal to “sell virtual currencies,” generate income via corporate sponsorships or in-game integrations, or make use of cryptocurrencies or crypto assets (such as NFTs).
