With the phenomenal success of GTA Online, Rockstar fans are worried about Red Dead Redemption 2's future. Gamers fear that Take-Two Interactive will push Rockstar Games to create content for the online cash cow rather than DLC for the western-themed title.
Take-Two is still profiting from the success of GTA V and GTA Online years after the title's launch. Just recently, the game publisher revealed that most of its 2017 revenue came from Grand Theft Auto V. The fifth installment sold more than 90 million copies worldwide, reported Forbes. Paul Tassi, a Forbes contributor, credits Grand Theft Auto Online for most of the title's success.
According to Comicbook, Take-Two Interactive is confident that 2018 will be another exceptional financial year. The game publisher predicts that GTA Online sales will continue to soar and Red Dead Redemption 2's release in the winter will increase revenue even further.
After the Take-Two publishing team announced Grand Theft Auto V's record-breaking sales, they assured fans that RDR2 would not interfere with GTA Online after its release. Apparently, some GTA players were worried that Rockstar Games would shift its attention to Red Dead Redemption 2 after its launch. Take-Two CEO, Strauss Zelnick, made sure to address the gamers' concerns.
