Whether you love them or hate them, microtransactions are here to stay and it’s easy to see why, with GTA Online earning developer Rockstar a reported $500 million dollars.
The mind-blowing sum was revealed in documents pertaining to the lawsuit against Take-Two by former Rockstar North president Leslie Benzie, who claims to be owed $150 million in royalties.
The lawsuit states “GTA Online has the potential to achieve the greatest profit margin of any game created in the GTA franchise,” It also reveals that GTA Online has “nearly 100 percent profit margin.”
With over 8 million gamers playing GTA Online every week, and Rockstar hosting new events and content on a regular basis, we’re sure this number will rapidly increase.
