Back in May, the total number of sales for GTA V is 95 million. In November last year, the game passed 85 million units sold and became the "all-time best-selling video game" ever in the US.

However, the total sales of GTA V are just one way of making money for Rockstar. As a game, GTA V has brought even more money for the company, due to its microtransaction system. GTA V's multiplayer mode dubbed GTA Online, have always exceeded Rockstar's expectation, with the revenue it brings getting even bigger and bigger. This microtransaction system, named "recurrent consumer spending" is one "significant revenue-driver" for Rockstar, according to Take-Two market research firm.

And that is not the end for GTA V.

According to Rockstar Games, they have "even more" contents planned for GTA Online in the future. That's a good signal because many gamers feared that with the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar's old games will receive less support from the company. Red Dead Redemption 2 will also feature an online mode, named Red Dead Online, which is set to launch in November.

GTA V was initially released for PS3 and Xbox 360 back in September 2013. More than one year later, the game got launched on PS4 and Xbox One, in November 2014. The game then finally came to PC in April 2015, with a huge boost in total sales.

So many people are expecting a sixth Grand Theft Auto game. A report from March 2016 stated that GTA 6 had entered production, and it's rumored to be set in the United States, just like the previous games.
