GTA 5 is Still Making an Insane Amount of Money

Grand Theft Auto 5 released four years and ten months ago but that doesn't mean this giant money train slowed down. It was recently revealed that GTA 5 is still a big earner for both Rockstar Games and their parent company Take Two Interactive.

Take Two announced today that GTA 5 has now shipped nearly 100 million units. This number is up from the 95 million figure that they announced back in May. According to Take Two, the game has outperformed their expectations for the quarter. To give a little context to the game's insane success so far from its launch, GTA 5 was the number 3 selling game in the United States during June. It managed to outsell a number of new big name releases like The Crew 2.

GTA 5 Blowing Away Expectations

Not only did the base game do exceptionally well, but GTA Online had also managed to exceed Take Two's expectations. "Grand Theft Auto Online continued to exceed our expectations in the first quarter, as it has in every period since its release," Take-Two explained. (https://bit.ly/2LKazYG)

The main reason the online portion of GTA 5 is doing well and continues to be so successful is because Rockstar consistently releases new and interesting content. The most recent substantial update was GTA Online: After Hours which Take Two said: "had a bigger week-one audience than last December's Doomsday Heist, which went on to be a record-breaking update."

Looking toward the future, the company says it has more innovative content planned for GTA Online in upcoming weeks and months. A big part of this online mode is the game's plethora of microtransactions which have been performing extremely well. During an earnings call, The CEO of Take Two, Strauss Zelnick, said: "recurrent consumer spending" (microtransactions) performed better-than-expected this quarter.

GTA V continues to thrive and it doesn't seem like there is an end in sight. The Gigamax Games crew is excited to continue following this incredible franchise and for the latest news, be sure to stop by GigamaxGames.com.
