I have this theory that the reason R* is so money hungry, is because their debt with Take-Two. I thought about it for awhile and it made perfect sense to me. In this generation, the majority of game developers only care about how their game looks and wanting to have the best looking game out there. The world, graphics, motion caption etc. GTA V is a heavily detailed game and I can guarantee you it wasn't cheap to make at all. Take-Two, which is the parent company, I guess provides R* with the currency they need to make a game like GTA V. Again, which wasn't cheap. So now that GTA V is fully developed, people are playing it and enjoying it, the business part comes in. Like all businesses, if you invest in something or someone, you expect to see what you put in come back to you 2x. Even though GTA V sold over a billion copies, the revenue probably wasn't enough for Take-Two. How would they make more revenue? It's not like people would keep buying GTA V over and over again when they're already halfway through the game. So GTA Online is born, with on-going expensive in-game materials people want immediately and not willing to grind for. So here come the Shark Cards! Something you can buy instantly with real money which goes to R*, which goes to Take-Two, which goes to God :0 So I'm guessing Take-Two figured GTA V is a cash cow and saw no reason to stop milking.

And I wouldn't hold my breath for a Single-Player DLC either when Online is their base source of income. I don't take Rockstar for the gambling type, so why scramble to create a brand new story when players can do it themselves? Besides during story-mode you didn't have to pay for anything, so why stop what's generating the most income for the company?

Rockstar Games was bought by Take Two. Take Two owns them. That's it. 

 

Back in the day people thought that EA was going to buy Rockstar Games. Imagine that.

It's been four years since GTA 5 came out. If anyone still thinks single player DLC is coming out, they're a fool.

That wasn't just a thought, they did try a hostile takeover in 2008 and very nearly succeeded.

Hasn't Take2 owned R* since the 90's?

The real reason GTA sucks is because the consumers and developers suck equally in modern day. Forgive my bitterness but everyone is a retard except me.


LOL just playing.

Take-Two's primary concern is money, they don't care about the quality or direction of Rockstar's games as long as they make money and continue to do so into the future. Do the Rockstar devs dislike the direction of the Gta series at the moment? Maybe but they're going to keep quite about it, and that is understandable.
