Take-Two Interactive has responded to a lawsuit that was recently filed by Lindsay Lohan in regards to “GTA 5,” which was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 last year in addition to coming out for the PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year. According to a report from Gameplanet on Aug. 28, lawyers from the gaming company wanted the lawsuit to be dismissed as they believed that it was file for publicity. They also suggested that Lindsay Lohan should pay for the legal fees.
The celebrity filed a lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive as she believed that her likeliness was used in the open-world action-adventure game without her permission. A mission from the campaign mode apparently has players trying to protect a lookalike of Lindsay Lohan from the paparazzi. The software product takes place in a fictional Los Santos city that is based around Los Angeles. As a result, it has a lot of parodies of Hollywood celebrities and films.
Aside from the lawsuit, Take-Two Interactive is also busy trying to release “GTA 5” for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Digital Spy reported that, although no concrete release date has been announced so far, a U.K. retailer called GameSeek is listing that the ports should be coming out on Nov. 7. The date falls on a Friday while most new games are launched on a Tuesday in North America. As a result, North American players could get the same title on Nov. 4.
Some fans are showing concerns that the “GTA 5” release date for the PS4, Xbox One and PC could be pushed until next year. The Rockstar North development team is busy with providing constant updates for the PS3 and Xbox 360 games with rumored casino and zombie DLC packs. The “GTA Online” heists feature has also been in development for a long time.
