If you had "autumn 2018" in the Red Dead Redemption 2 delay pool, congratulations. Rockstar announced today that the highly anticipated Western game will not make it this year after all.

Millions of dollars raining from the sky. Disappearing oceans. Jetpacks. In GTA Online, rule-breaking players can stage miracles, tragedies, and stunts using fan-created tools known as mod menus. The people creating these mod menus have their own community, where cheaters can be honorable, while others use exploits to make a buck.
GTA Online is mostly known for violence and open world shenanigans, so most people don't realise just how much the fandom cares about clothes. For over a year now, some of the most hardcore players have been using online forums to gripe about the fashion options available for women characters in GTA Online.
Last month, the mod group known as .White announced "Red Dead Redemption V," a project that would incorporate Red Dead's map into Grand Theft Auto V. But soon after releasing a teaser trailer for the mod on Friday, the group decided to cancel the project.
Alas, a project to bring Red Dead Redemption to the PC using Grand Theft Auto 5 has come to a sad, yet predictable end. It appears developer Rockstar and publisher Take-Two didn't take the work of modding group White Team too seriously... that is, until it released a trailer. Shortly after the drop, the video disappeared from YouTube, followed by confirmation from White Team that it had been, er, contacted by Take-Two.
There's tension brewing in the GTA Online YouTube community, where competing creators often use similar ideas. The smaller channels involved don't think it's a coincidence: they accuse the bigger channels of stealing their creativity, profiting off their hard work, and in some extreme cases, shutting down channels that dispute anything.
For almost two years, one of the most popular ways to earn money in GTA Online was to use an armoured "Kuruma" car during the final part of a specific heist. Instead of riding motorcycles and dodging hundreds of police bullets, as the heist typically demanded, a crew could pile into an armoured car and drive to safety. This exploit was safer and faster than playing through the heist normally, so it quickly became the community's favourite way to grind money.
Last month's GTA Online update, Import/Export, added a slew of wacky vehicles. Since then, fans have used the update to do all sorts of outlandish things that must be seen to be believed.
OpenIV was used to start cracking open Grand Theft Auto V back in 2015, and now the Russian developers behind the modding tool have set their sites on bringing GTA IV's Liberty City into the series' latest entry.
Earlier this year I covered the GTA 5 community's attempt to find beta and cut content. Recently, that group hit the motherlode with images that give us a sense of how GTA 5 changed over development.
