Hey, So I came across this grammar in some random place - そういう風になっている. Does anyone have an idea what does it mean? I think it may be the same as "ことになっている” but i'm not so sure.

When I googled it with "grammar" or "eigo" tags, it only shows そういう風に related results, I'm more interested in what does the なっている means here?

なっている roughly means "to be already settled".
Yes, そういうことになっている has almost the same meaning; The things are already settled like that.
