Despite being a remnant of last-gen machines, GTA V has continued to regularly chart in video game sales charts thanks to the game’s online mode, GTA Online. You’d think that after almost six years of being on the market that Rockstar would start winding down support for the game, especially considering that Red Dead Redemption 2 has released with its own multiplayer suite, Red Dead Online.
That isn’t the case, though, and it doesn’t look like Rockstar will be putting GTA V out to pasture anytime soon. Speaking on the Take Two Interactive quarterly earnings call, Take Two stated that GTA V and GTA Online continue to be a big driver for the company, and that Rockstar Games will continue to support both GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2/RDR Online with more meaningful content updates in the future. GTA V isn’t going to be dying anytime soon, then, and that’s good for those who are invested in GTA Online, though many are still sour over the lack of single player DLC. No, it’s never coming.
Fair play to Rockstar for keeping the cash cow running for so long, but how long can it run for? The big question a lot of us are asking is: When’s GTA 6 coming?
