Hello everyone! We’re a little late – we know!
It’s been a busy few weeks as we continue to integrate our team and project into our new home within Rockstar Games. Rest assured, we are settling into our situation quickly and smoothly! In our first Community Pulse since these exciting changes, we will be answering some key questions from the community as well as sharing a few important updates!
The response to the news of Cfx.re joining Rockstar Games was incredible – thank you to all who reached out. Understandably, you also have lots of questions waiting to be answered, so we’ve compiled the most common thoughts. Let’s go over them!
Many community members reached out to ask about the precise nature of our relationship with Rockstar Games. We are happy to say that Rockstar Games has acquired Cfx.re – which, as long-term fans, we are all incredibly excited about. It is functionally the same team behind the scenes, but with the full support of Rockstar Games, we will be able to strengthen the platform and grow the community even further over time. The use of the term ‘partnership’ in our previous announcement refers to us working together to achieve a common goal: making FiveM the best it can possibly be!
While the acquisition has not meaningfully affected our day-to-day operations, it has opened the door for us to more quickly upgrade our entire service over time. With the help of the Rockstar Games team, we’ve currently been focusing our efforts on improving the overall stability of our infrastructure to ensure as little downtime as possible, as well as making efforts to upgrade our customer support experience. Working with Rockstar Games also gives us access to new tools to improve our overall community health, so one of our first steps has been working to address any immediate safety and security concerns we were able to identify together. Furthermore, we’ve spent a lot of time discussing the future of the platform – seeing where we can improve across both FiveM and RedM – all of which we’ll get to very soon!
As we mentioned in the initial announcement, we do not intend to make major changes to the way FiveM and RedM currently function. The team continues to operate as before, with the freedom to make decisions as before, but now we are a part of the Rockstar Games team! Our shared goal is to grow and improve the existing platform: adding more functionality wherever possible and making it easier for our community to create and share their creations.
As a reminder – if you have any feedback on the platform you would like to share, please leave your comments on this announcement (we read all of them!) or join our Discord community.
Now that Cfx.re is a part of Rockstar Games, our Terms of Service have been updated to reflect Rockstar Games’ broader terms and policies. We also encourage everyone to take the time to read our updated Platform License Agreement, which is available at https://fivem.net/terms.
As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the FiveM and RedM communities, a number of FiveM servers were recently discovered to have been violating our service in ways that require immediate enforcement and removal. The safety of our community is of the utmost importance to us, and we want to make it clear that mods containing or promoting violent extremism, graphic sexual content, glorification of hate groups or real-world militia groups, or abuse and depiction of children, have no place on our platform. If you operate or administer servers that feature this content, we suggest that you remove this content immediately to avoid any current or future enforcement actions. If you are a player who encounters a server that contains the content described above, please contact email@example.com so that our team can make an assessment.
See you all next month!
