Take-Two Interactive Software disclosed its most recent financial achievements in a new quarterly report.
Thank god currency cards are a proper replacement for the additional single-player content nobody wants to this day ..
Rockstar talks more about DLC and digital spending than the library of upcoming new titles In fact they only have one upcoming title announced thus far. How does that even happen
When they made well over $500mil USD in microtrans with nearly 100% profit margin seeing as how microtrans dlc cost next to nothing to produce... Anyone expecting RDR2 to be any different (or any future titles tbh) needs to wake up... Pretty sad smh but at the end of the day these companies are in it for the $$$
You're really low balling it with the 500 million figure there.
@baba Haha sad but true
Of course they are in it for the money, every business is in it for the money. Are they supposed to be a non-profit organization?
It was reported end of last year they average 500-700 million every year in microtransactions
Yeah but a publisher as big as Rockstar should still have more titles in the pipeline. It’s not like they’d have everybody working on DLC and one new title.
And how do you know that they don't, just because you haven't heard anything yet means nothing.
Because when you have a staff that large you need to have them working on many things. The DLC they’ve produced doesn’t look anything more intensive than Episodes from Liberty City or Undead Nightmare, so there's clearly staff members that are open right now. This isn’t just one development team, this is a huge publisher we’re talking about.
And people still expect this company to treat RDR2 with ANY care whatsoever? Give your heads a shake folks.
I'm expecting a great single player game and an online mode thats MT's will put battlefront's to shame.
Good god, who are these idiots buying this stuff? I never understood how anyone could buy into practices like this... not DLC per se (eg GTA IV's two episodes, which were amazing), but this microtransaction pay-to-win crap.
You know, I paid more for gta4 and the paid dlc then I have for any extra content or updates in Gta5. And I might point out that I been playing Gta5 since day one. I haven't had to spend any money on shark cards, not a penny.
Then he is not referring to you is he. Microtransactions are becoming a cancer to those who value single player experiences. Especially those from Rockstar as they have seemed to nearly abandon them for online content.
Well there is way more replay value in Gta5 free online updates content then there ever was with the two single player gta4 dlc expansions. So my point is valid.
Obviously GTA online is the Arab princes, tax dodging celebrities and money grubbing politicians game of choice... What everyday joes in amassed numbers could even possibly generate that amount of money, even in four/five years.
Man...this is terrible news. Its literally impossible for me to find the time to play enough of this game to even get close to buying the vehicle in the thumbnail right now. Its why I stopped playing the game. Game is great and fun but man these microtransactions.
