Rockstar Games has filed for the fan versions of GTA 3 and GTA Vice City to be taken offline. A developer of the projects reports this via Eurogamer. Recently the source code for the games, Re em ReVC, appeared for free on Github. These games are reverse engineered, in other words, sifted through from a complete game to get back to basics. This way, modders and developers can learn from the code and add additional things as needed. For example, various improvements could occur in the GTA games, an improved HUD, improved effects, support for modern controllers and bugs that have been fixed.
With the source code of the fan version, other modders can get started to add extra improvements or create ports for platforms like the Nintendo Switch or PlayStation Vita. Unfortunately, it turned out that Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games want to take the games offline due to copyright infringement.

The project manager tells Eurogamer that he was already concerned about possible actions from Take-Two and Rockstar, despite emphasizing that the fan versions will only work with an official copy of the games.

The publisher does not have to worry that the fan projects will not bring in any sales.
It is unclear for now whether the project will actually be taken off the air, but it seems there is an end in sight for the modified versions of GTA 3 and GTA Vice City.
I hope you are in health and well.
