According to the latest Take-Two financials, Rockstar is still making heinous amounts of money from both GTA V and the Grand Theft Auto Online component. Who are we to begrudge them that success when they keep pumping out immense amounts of free content as well, continuing with the imminent arrival of GTA Online: Gunrunning. 

The massive update for GTA Online is arriving in June, kickstarting an illegal underground weapons trafficking business in Southern San Andreas. By underground, Rockstar means literally. Throughout Blaine County there are hatches hidden in the ground, leading to sprawling underground networks even purchasable criminal headquarters. Here you can load up with new military-grade vehicles and weaponry.

There’s also some serious cash to be earned from your risky escapades. Customers are willing to pay the big bucks for your illegal firearms, while there’s also the opportunity to unlock new business and research opportunities, a weaponized Mobile Operations Center, and new weapon upgrades. 

I’ll admit GTA Online has left me behind a little bit in the years since its launch, yet by all accounts the amount of content in there is staggering. Who’s going to give gunrunning a go? Can you see Red Dead Redemption 2’s Online component being the success GTA V’s has been? Let us know!

GTA online is a fine example of how multiplayer should be handled through out the course of the game life. Rockstar did a great job in keeping up the pace and not letting its fans down. :)

I wish they put more attention to sp mode, now you should be in mutliplayer mode to buy cars, that`s why i stopped playing as im more of a story and gameplay player.

I really need to start playing GTA V multiplayer... I almost uninstalled GTA V because I hadn't played it in a while and it's taking a lot of space on my HDD, even though I wanted to do the single player story one more time, but then I started watching the self driving neural network, named Charles (created by sentdex), on Twitch, and it really makes me want to play the game again and try online again.

Actually is not that bad. Indeed it's an old game but in other games these were dlcs. Here you have updates, not dlcs, the only thing why GTA V kept it's price for so long.

Makes you worry for the single-player component of GTA 6, given that GTA Online is where the real money seems to be.
I sincerely hope the star of RDR2 is the story mode, though. RDR is still, in my opinion, the greatest open world game ever made, and the multiplayer was barely a fraction of the experience.

Not interested in GTAO one bit but wondering if the vehicles and guns will be added to SP as well?

They haven't added anything from online to SP since high life, so I don't believe they'll add anything to SP now.

It looks cool, but GTA V is so old already I really don't plan to come back to it with so many good upcoming games. This is how I feel, all of those things come too late...
