Rockstar Games Cracks Down on Controversial CEO Names in GTA Online

Controversial CEO busted!

Ever since GTA Online was released, citizens of Los Santos have had the freedom to assign any name to their CEO organization. But it seems like Rockstar Games is now blocking controversial names, specifically after the release of the Bottom Dollar Bounties update.

This came to light when a Reddit user "7joetaylor" reported that the game developers have added censorship to the CEO organization names. The user had assigned an offensive name “Drugs ‘n’ Stuff” to his in-game organization which mysteriously disappeared after eight long years, right after the arrival of the recent update.

As a result, the organization's name was reset automatically to “An Organization” and the user encountered an error upon attempting to include the offensive keyword "Drugs" in the organization's name.

However, not everyone is in favor of this decision as some players pointed out the irony that the game allows you to engage in illegal or mature activities such as drug dealing, soliciting prostitutes, and violence, yet censors illicit organization names. They also noted that many new words have been added to the chat censorship list, including swear words in multiple languages.

While this isn't the first time GTA Online developers have banned offensive words, it is surprising that Rockstar also prohibits terms that aren't actually foul. Words like Mininova, Piratebay, Demonoid, and other piracy-related terms are also banned within the game.

So far, we know that players are encountering errors when attempting to use edgy names in GTA Online. Rockstar Games may start imposing bans on players who repeatedly try to assign offensive names to their CEO organizations or use banned words in server chat. So simply put – Rockstar is serious about profanity from players in GTA Online, even if it doesn't hold itself to the same standard.
