GTA 5 is Rockstar’s pride ever since it was released. The Game has always topped charts with impressive sales, and player base. It was released on September 17, 2013, and to this day it is competing for the top 5 Steams player base chart. According to NPD Group, Grand Theft Auto 5 was the best-selling game of the past decade. However, Minecraft was reportedly also the best selling game, thus there is confusion.
“Together, both award-winning titles have attained incredible benchmarks for Rockstar Games, with collective lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 now totaling more than 150 million units worldwide,” Take-Two said in a statement. “Rockstar Games’ total online audience is now its biggest ever, having recorded its largest numbers ever throughout the fourth quarter of calendar 2019.”
Well, Take-Two owns Rockstar Games and 2K, thus this source is quite accurate. Furthermore, Take-Two is celebrating their massive success with free bonuses for everyone. Players who are currently playing GTA Online will get $1 million, if they play between January 30 and February 5. Afterward, you will get another $1 million for playing between February 5 and February 12. Well, you just have to log-in, roam around a little bit and enjoy the free money.
Take Two will also give bonuses to Red Dead Redemption 2 Players. If you play Red Dead Online between January 28 and February 3, you will get Gunslinger’s Cache, that further includes Free Schofield Revolver, Varmint Rifle, Ammo Bundle: 100x Split Point Revolver Ammo, 100x High-Velocity Pistol Ammo, 100x Express Repeater Ammo, 100x Slug Shotgun Ammo, and 20x Explosive Rifle ammo. That is a lot of ammo for sure. The Second phase rewards include Bounty Hunter’s Kit, that contains 25x Bolas, Free Bounty Hunter License, and 25x Tracking Arrows. You can get second phase rewards, by logging in between February 5 and February 12.
Take-Two further commented saying that GTA Online has constantly broken new records, and December 2019 was their largest month ever in terms of player numbers.
“After breaking records for daily, weekly and monthly average players in July and August consecutively following the release of The Diamond Casino & Resort, the December launch of The Diamond Casino Heist broke even those records, bringing players back in bigger numbers than ever before over the holiday period. The back-to-back release of these two colossal updates—the biggest GTA Online has ever seen—also made December 2019 our largest month ever in terms of player numbers,” it said.
“With two distinct worlds now alive and thriving, we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated fanbase that travels with us on this journey as both continue to expand and evolve with new types of gameplay, new stories and much more to experience over the coming year.”
