Rockstar asked about GTA remasters
The cries from fans for a sequel to Grand Theft Auto V will likely go unanswered for a couple more years as Rockstar confirms it has now shipped a ludicrous 140 million copies of the game.

In the US, anyway
Grand Theft Auto V is the best-selling game of all time, according to American sales tracking organisation NPD. Now there are some caveats here: this only applies to the United States, so there may be titles that have historically performed better – though it’s perhaps worth noting that Rockstar’s opus finished second in...
Sequel surpasses 54 million sales
Franklin, Michael, and Trevor should jack in their thug lives and learn to become game developers instead – after all, Grand Theft Auto V proves that there's more money in this industry anyway. As revealed by Rockstar's parent company Take-Two during a financial call overnight, the fifth instalment in its sandbox...
But the executive apparently misspoke
So, remember back when Rockstar Games said that Grand Theft Auto V would be getting some story-based DLC? Yeah, like a super long time ago? Turns out that never happened. Crazy, right?

Dollar bills, y'all

Taking BAWSAQ by storm
Publishers must look at Grand Theft Auto V and weep, as the blockbuster sandbox game has now sold an absolutely staggering 45 million units. To be clear: this statistic is accurate as of 31st December, and represents the number of copies offloaded to stores, not necessarily in consumers' homes. Of course, it's still a...
Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.
All the classic hallmarks of the groundbreaking series return, including incredible attention to detail and Grand Theft Auto’s darkly humorous take on modern culture, alongside a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer.
