FTC Investigates Take-TwoTake-Two Acknowledges Federal Inquiry On the heels of Monday's vote in the House of Representatives to refer the "Hot Coffee" matter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Take-Two Interactive acknowledged Tuesday that the FTC's Division of Advertising Practices is conducting an inquiry into advertising claims made for Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Take-Two Interactive, which owns Rockstar, stated that the company intends to "fully cooperate with the FTC inquiry, and believes that it acted in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations." Take-Two cites its involvement and cooperation with the recently concluded ESRB investigation into the "Hot Coffee" matter and the "decisive and immediate corrective action" taken to resolve the situation. The company states that it has taken steps to correct the issue including halting production of the current version of GTA: San Andreas and working on a version of the game that would remove the elements that resulted in the offending modification as well as taking steps to ensure that future games will not be vulnerable to such modifications. The company also pledged its continued support for and promotion of the ESRB ratings system.
