"Rockstar Games Parent company Take-Two Interactive have released their earnings report for the past Quarter ending December 31st, 2017. Basically, the Conference call was Strauss Zelnick telling everyone that they made a lot of Money.

Net revenue grew to $480.8 Million, an increase over the $476.5 Million which was reported during the same period last year. Recurrent Consuming Spending (Microtransactions) grew 64% year over year with Grand Theft Auto Online being the largest contributor. We know most of you don’t care about how much money they made so information about Grand Theft Auto is below.

Grand Theft Auto V ships 90 Million Units

Take-Two Interactive also confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V has now shipped over 90 Million worldwide across all Platforms. A total of 5 million copies shipped in the last Quarter and 15 Million copies shipped throughout 2017. That is more than most new games released in 2017.

Future Updates confirmed for GTA Online

2017 was the most successful year ever for Grand Theft Auto Online. With more shark cards than ever being purchased and more players Joining each day. Due to the release of the Doomsday HEIST, December 2017 had more players than any other month since the release of GTA Online in October 2013. That’s pretty impressive considering we’re 5 years in. *Take-Two also confirmed that Rockstar Games will continue to support Grand Theft Auto Online with future updates."

*Article written by Kyle Evans, this emphasis mine.

Fine with me. Let's hope they throw in more PvE content like new contact missions.

New heists

New places to live like the big houses up in the hills

Ocean content since we now have scuba outfits

Clubs (Bahama Mamas and Tequi-la-la)

And last but not least...

The Pool Table.

Betting DH being extremely successful bodes well for future story driven PvE oriented DLCs. Hopefully the realistic military stuff sold well, I want more helis and jets and aircraft carriers and tanks an sheeit.

I have to say it's all pretty impressive for a game this old. I never thought they would quit bringing out dlc, the income was just to great from sharkcards.

 

All hail the cash cow!

A Lah push back the RD2 release, so we can keep milkings this GTAO 🐮.

 

I ain't mad at'em.

 

Just let's get with the Breaking and Entering into homes across the city, desert, & the Bay!

 

Like that Outrun thread.

I'm 100% sure they will reinvest the money in a new anti-cheat system + GTA IV cars' pack + map extension.+ Muscle/tuners update + humanized support... They love us!

Is "new anti cheat system" a nickname for Strauss Zelnick's wallet?

Probably a very small percentage of the playerbase that buys them in masse, aka "whales".

 

Basically, they're the ones who are paying for the updates.

Have you never joined random lobbys and listened to the chat? those kids have like 20 grand max, some can't even afford ammo. I'm sure they scam the old shark card from mum and spend it on a car or something

Am I the only one who feels guilty for not contributing to the success by purchasing a shark card?! Nah, I'll be OK.

 

Sadly though; their best year yet was from copy and pasted dlcs. So I highly doubt we'll ever see new concepts or map expansions.

Doomsday wasn't

 

But I agree with you on the rest.

Sadly I see more and more expensive weaponized vehicles coming...... hooray.... *sarcasm* So long as we don't get any more helisexual content, I'll be happy

I've never purchased a shark card, but I would pay good money for a single player DLC.

Doomsday was the biggest copy paste of them all lol

 

It was SP DLC brought to online, more like cut and paste rather than copy paste but yeah

Think in a good way. They are moving GTA O ahead and providing us more updates. The content is questionable, but the game is still alive.

Well, great for everyone who's still playing but damn... A title from 2013 with ridiculous microtransaction-oriented content and the unfinished PUBG are among the hottest things in gaming in 2017/2018. Something's wrong here if you ask me.

If the leaked documents of red dead are true, they're gonna saturate online with adversary modes from the get go.

 

They know pve can bring in numbers, it can't get more obvious than Doomsday.

People said the same thing about the Hunter, and helicopters, etc. She's just got to do what she's got to do.

 

Hopefully there's something in store for her anyway - or at least, there are more opportunities now. Also hopefully they buff bombs. I want something that'll leave the ground shaking on the other side of the map. Hopefully no more meme vehicles.

 

Other than that ... Hmmm ... Savage MKII? Aircraft carrier?

Screw the Savage, I want a Buzzard Custom!

 

It feels so satisfying nailing those tryhards with hit and run rockets while evading Homing Missiles, now imagine that with proper Missile Barrages and Countermeasures?

 

OH BOI.

Careful about that wish, they might be additional restricted ones like the DLC Lamar Contact Missions.

 

I'm all for new CMs like the originals, but not ones like those add-on missions that have the same BS player count requirement system that Heists have.
