GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a huge success for Rockstar and Take Two. During its latest financial earnings call, Take Two revealed that GTA V has now sold more than 140 million copies–a number that will likely only continue to grow when the game comes to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X later this year.
Despite being more than seven years old at this point, 2020 was GTA V’s single best year since launch. Take Two said “more copies of Grand Theft Auto V” were sold last year than any other year since 2013, when the title first launched on PS3 and Xbox 360. Recurrent consumer spending–Take Two’s terminology for in-game purchases–for Grand Theft Auto Online grew 28% year-over-year, outperforming the company’s third-quarter forecast.
Grand Theft Auto V continues to receive a regular stream of updates to its GTA Online mode. Back in December, Rockstar rolled out the big Cayo Perico Heist update, which introduced the titular heist as well as a new island location, a new nightclub, new vehicles and weapons, and more.
