Exactly. It's pretty consistently been selling about 5 million every quarter for the past several quarters. Excluding launch (2013), 2020 was the best year for GTA V sales. It's entirely possible for 2021 to be even higher.

The game is almost always in the top seller lists. No reason to make a new one when the old one is still selling like crazy.

And there is a massive demand for a new game. They have the capabilities to please both sides and make a killing.
