Grand Theft Auto Online is still one of the greatest games on the planet – and it is becoming increasingly popular.
The online part of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5, that started six decades back at October 2013, watched consumer spending up 23 percent to a new album, Take-Two manager Strauss Zelnick said this week.
This increase was caused primarily from the July launch of this Diamond Casino & Resort upgrade, Zelnick clarified. The upgrade sparked record player participation across every day, weekly and yearly active consumers in July, and again in August.
It is a remarkable performance for a match which shows no indication of slowing down even though the launch of Rockstar’s very own Red Dead Online at November 2018. Plus it sounds Grand Theft Auto Online has amazed even Take-Two. It also said it expects the online style to grow in financial 2020. Quite surprisingly, Grand Theft Auto 5, which you have to play with GTA Online, has offered over 115m components. It’s now the most popular sport on Steam together with, in the time of publication, 132,000 concurrent players.
What about Red Dead Redemption Online, afterward? Zelnick said it “continues to gain momentum” and “grew sequentially during the second quarter”. Not as huge a victory as Grand Theft Auto Online, afterward, but can it be? Red Dead Redemption 2 has thus far sold nearly 26.5m duplicates – and it only launched on PC.
“Throughout the year, Rockstar Games will continue to support both Red Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto Online with many more updates in order to drive engagement and player growth,” Zelnick reasoned.
“We remain as excited as ever about the long-term opportunity for Red Dead Online to be meaningful driver of recurrent consumer spending.”
