GTA V Publisher Believes MicroTransactions in Games is the Future

In an investor’s meet, Grand Theft Auto V publisher Take Two, the parent company behind Rockstar confirmed that micro transactions in games are the future and they can’t avoid it any cost.

With game development becoming an expensive and risky business, as well as multiple studio shutdowns and lay offs, it is important to make more revenue out of the games like GTA V that they create rather than relying on the one-time price paid by the customer.

Gamers are already annoyed by the concept of microtransactions used in games like Middle Earth Shadow of War and Assassin’s Creed Origins. Electronic Arts, publisher of Star Wars Battlefront II had to pull off microtransactions following massive discontent among gamers.

However, Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick’s take on introducing microtransactions after GTA V, possibly in the upcoming GTA 6 game scheduled for launch in 2020 seems to be an early call to take. The situation in the gaming industry in the near future will determine whether it is important to impose more expenses on gamers after they pay the initial $60 for an AAA title.
