When Grand Theft Auto V was released 4 years ago, it quickly became one of the best-selling games ever. We aren’t surprised by this, the amazing storyline, breath-taking graphics and the unique multiplayer experience is something that players are still enjoying now as much as they did in 2013 when the game was released publicly.
Take-Two Interactive have said that the continued success of Grand Theft Auto has been a shock to them as it continues to be a major part of the game publisher’s earnings. The game publisher released their quarterly earnings on Wednesday and announced that sales of the game were “exceeding expectations”.
Pressure also seems to be on for Rockstar Games, the developers of Grand Theft Auto V for the next game in the Grand Theft Auto series. Rockstar also, last October, announced the sequel to their western-world game Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 to be released in Spring 2018 after intially being planned to release in Autumn 2017.
Take-Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnick did not give any information about what players can expect in Red Dead Redemption 2 but he did say that the company is just as confident with the Red Dead series as they are with Grand Theft Auto.
