Take-Two is once again trying to kill reverse-engineered versions of GTA III and Vice City

Back in February, Take-Two took notice of fan-made attempts to reverse-engineer and release Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City. But while the projects returned to GitHub a few days after the publisher had them removed, Take-Two has resumed its attack by filing a lawsuit against the re3 developers this week.

The lawsuit, filed in California yesterday, accuses the re3 creators of “unlawfully” copying, adapting a redistributing the source code for the two games. This is in spite of re3’s developers stressing that the code has been entirely reverse engineered (ie, created by working backwards from the finished game, rather than using the Take-Two owned source code), and that any releases require players to provide their own copies of the game.
