Grand Theft Auto Online is one of the most popular games of all time, six years after its release continues to add and follow
The online strand of GTA 5, which was launched in October 2013, saw a 23% increase in consumer spending and set a new record for the Rockstar Games game.
The release of the Diamond Casino and Resort Update in July, Strauss Zelnick explained to Take-Two investors, has made the number of daily, weekly and monthly active players the highest ever recorded at GTA Online, peaking in August.
This astounding performance shows that the Rockstar game doesn’t seem to slow down and even Red Dead Online couldn’t get in its way. GTA Online has surprised Take-Two itself, which now says it expects new growth this fiscal year.
Grand Theft Auto 5, required to play GTA Online, has sold over 115 million units and is one of Steam’s most popular games, with over 132,000 players at the same time.
For the coming months, Take-Two expects to continue to record equally impressive numbers and rely on GTA Online to earn more revenue from recurring spending.
