Rockstar is so reluctant to announce the next big chapter in the Grand Theft Auto saga. GTA 5, or specifically, GTA Online is just making too much money!

GTA Online took in $700 million this year, says analyst
Grand Theft Auto is a massive success in every sense of the word. Only the idiotic or uninformed would think otherwise but I’m not sure anyone truly realized how much of a money making behemoth the popular title has been for the developer, Rockstar. Releasing just over three years ago, GTA 5 was an instant hit and went on to garner many awards and accolades for its amazing open-world design and “crim-sim” gameplay.

Three years is a long time in this industry and there has been zero chatter from Rockstar about any sort of followup, perhaps GTA 6 or something similar. Likewise, information on much-requested single player DLC has been nonexistent, much to the continued chagrin of fans hoping for a few high-quality expansions like we saw with GTA 4.

Well, perhaps we now have a possible reason as to why Rockstar is so reluctant to announce the next big chapter in the Grand Theft Auto saga. GTA 5, or specifically, GTA Online is just making too much money! According to a well-known industry analyst, Daniel Ahmed, the game and it’s associated properties took in $700 million over the last twelve months, apparently even more than the previous year. A staggering amount by anyone’s standards, it becomes even more impressive when you consider there was no physical re-release of the title over that period so the majority is being generated by the continued success of GTA Online.
