A few months ago, Rockstar Games said they intended to make $1 billion in revenue before the end of March 2013. A nice figure but one that because their recent release, the rather excellent Max Payne 3, didn’t sell all that well, is surely only realistic with the release of Grand Theft Auto V within the next seven months.
As Grand Theft Auto approaches its 10th anniversary, Rockstar Games is revving up to celebrate this iconic game and show appreciation to its dedicated player base. Ten years is an insanely long time for a game to remain relevant within the current gaming world. But Rockstar has proven that through constant updates and listening to fans, their games can last a generation.
Grand Theft Auto 5 became a behemoth title for Rockstar Games, and now GTA 5 turns 10 years old. As we all wait for GTA 6, the game's legacy is complicated.
