GTA 5 just sold another 5 million copies as GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition fails to stay relevant

Who keeps buying Grand Theft Auto 5? We don’t know, but there’s enough of you to keep the numbers up for Take-Two. Only a few months ago, we heard that the Grand Theft Auto series overall continued to sell like hotcakes: as of February 2022, unit sales for the series topped 370 million, with the latest mainline release – GTA 5 – sales sitting pretty at over 160 million units. Has everyone forgotten about Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition? Fast-forward three months, and the game has – somehow – sold even more. During Take-Two Interactive’s conference…

Now you can ride your real bike around Grand Theft Auto in multiplayer

One of the coolest mod ideas is GTBike V, which basically lets you turn Grand Theft Auto V into Zwift, pedalling a bike in the world world to ride a virtual bike around Los Santos. Now a new version has added multiplayer, letting you trundle around the same city independently or join up for group rides. It almost makes me want to get the kit to hook my bike up. Read more

Work on a new Grand Theft Auto “is well underway”, Rockstar say

Eight years after the launch of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games have finally confirmed yes, they really are making a new GTA. For eight years they’ve focused on adding new content to the MMO-y GTA Online mode, which seems a licence to print money by selling in-game cash for real cash. This has made some fans ornery, wondering if they’ll just keep on plugging away at GTAO forever, especially with GTAV coming to next-gen consoles this year. But no, really, Rockstar say they really have been making a new one. Read more

Bully 2 may have been killed by stretching resources too thin, layoffs – report

Crunching on other projects may have contributed to the Bully 2 studio’s downfall. Game Informer’s Blake Hester published a detailed report all about the Bully 2 that might have been and what led to the studio developing the sequel’s downfall. In short, Rockstar New England was pulled in multiple directions to the point where Bully 2 was no longer the focus of the developers who worked there. Rockstar New England, which was purchased by Rockstar when the former was Mad Doc Software and was responsible for the next-gen remaster of the first Bully at the time, had ambitious plans for…

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most watched game on Twitch in 2021

The statistic shows the massive tail that the game has. Kotaku reports that according to the latest year in review report from stream tools company StreamElements, Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most watched game on Twitch, dominating a chart full of games that have solidly lodged themselves at the top for multiple years running. It might sound slightly surprising that a game that’s eight years old is still topping the Twitch charts, but that’s because Twitch doesn’t differentiate between Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online, the source of the former’s extremely long tail and a seemingly…

Twitch’s Best Virtual Bartender Wants To Help Viewers With Addiction

It’s not every day that you hear about a VTubing bartender whose goal is not to encourage people to get shitfaced but rather to help them avoid overindulging their vices. But, then, Twitch streamer Takahata101 isn’t your average VTuber. Previously a gaming streamer, on New Year’s Eve of 2020 he debuted a new format, one that transformed his Twitch channel into a cozy, jazz-infused bar called The Weary 101. It’s a place where you never know who’s going to drop by, and where the bartender wants you to know that you don’t have to drink a drop to belong.

Rockstar are launching an actual record label called CircoLoco Records

What are Rockstar launching this week? No, it isn’t Grand Theft Auto V on another platform. It’s also not another nightclub inside of GTA Online, but that is warmer.

The label’s first compliation record, Monday Dreamin’, releases on July 9th but they’ve already debuted the first track off the album. Read more
