Recently, Rockstar has reported an increase in GTA V’s overall performance. Indeed, the recent Epic giveaway certainly contributed to the game’s financial power. In contrast with the skepticism of many, CEO Strauss Zelnick displayed a new sales record for the game.
Currently, the first quarter of the new financial year is over in the US. Therefore, companies present some performance indicators to show how well they did. Rockstar is no different with announcing greater GTA V sales than the last period. Many thought the Epic giveaway would affect the game’s revenue negatively. However, the game managed to push its lifetime sales to 135 million.
Conversely, Rockstar isn’t going to call curtains for GTA V any time soon. The studio will upgrade the game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Furthermore, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to access GTA Online as a standalone game for free during its first three months.
