It's crazy GTA 5 keeps selling 5 million every quarter. What's even more crazier is how Take-two keeps losing money every quarter.

That would be dangerous if they buy them. If they did buy I would still think they will treat gta like how they treat Minecraft

I'm a bit out of the loop regarding Minecraft updates. Have they ruined the spirit of the game or something?

GTA 5 has sold more than the PS2 console.

That's the level of nuts that would make any squirrel happy.

So, insert general statement about how I don't own GTAV but while I'm here, you ever wonder how many games they could have sold (and in turn how much money made) if they made GTA6 like late last gen? I know GTA Online makes them lots of money but GTA6 Online can do the same.

If you're old like me, it's particularly hard to swallow. I remember getting GTA 3 when it came out. One year after that, we got Vice City. And then two years after that, San Andreas for a grand total of three full GTA games in just three years. lol

It's insane how slow development has gotten.

The Fury JackHandy (on 08 August 2023)

FF was the same a few years before that. FF8 9 and X within years of each other, now we get 1 per gen. I'd like to think it's just how development has gotten more advanced and therefore it takes longer to make games but there are business factors too. As a old timer, I'm sitting here waiting for the next Dragon Age, Tekken, or whatever and seeing years, decade even, between entries.

For DA it was a case of resets and upper management getting in the way, they have only just now gotten over that but 2 whole resets of game development hurts. Tekken, fighting games changed, it's all about the release then DLC now. No longer 3 games per gen all of which I will buy for £50, it's buy 1 game for £50 and get me to buy DLC for £20 each year for 5 years... which I don't do, as I'm old, i don't buy DLC like that and very much disagree with character pay walls. Give me a new game every 3-4 years, yeah, they'll get my money however. They released 6 games in the first 10 years of the games existence, we've had 3 since.

It would go bonkers but would you bother if a 10 year old game keep selling 5 million per quarter?

The Fury dane007 (on 09 August 2023)

There lies the issue with certain things in modern gaming. You could legit make a new GTA, which sells 15 million in it's first week then 10 mil every quarter but that takes time and effort. Milk the one that is selling 5 mil per quarter instead that you don't have to put any effort into?

If GTA Online making sooo much money, is it not worth making a new updated GTA online as part of 6 to modern standards to make even more? And who's buying GTA5 now? People holding on for the next GTA, they buy GTA5 just to buy something? If you havent' got GTA5 by now, you either don't want it or you were too young when it came out to buy it and are coming of age to buy it.

I do agree with your statement though.

There is risk in launching a new game. People may not like it as much as GTA v, and it may not get the same amount of online play. So by launching GTA 6, they're not guaranteeing more revenue, but they are taking a risk that they will bring in less.

Now, it is likely that GTA 6 will be a big money maker. So that's why it will eventually launch. But "likely" is not the same as the guaranteed success that they have a GTAv.

To be fair I have 3 copies of gta v🤣 and one gamepass copy. Still haven't the campaign 🤣🤣. It's not guaranteed that the new gta will be as successful as gta v. Gtav is the only one that has sold that much. It accounts for basically half of the total franchise sales!. From the business standpoint it's perfect as it's easy cash cow.

There's over 7 billion people and I would imagine there's at least 1-2 billion gamers lol. Must be one of those buying.

Not that I don't disagree with both you and VAMatt but the idea of risk when it's GTA to me is just funny. Might not make as much money as GTA5... but still more than every other game out there.

GTA6 will be around for a long, long time.
