There’s no denying that Grand Theft Auto Online is an absolute mammoth in the video games industry. With GTA 5 selling over 90 million units, pulling in over $6 billion dollars and continuing to see daily user figures of between 50,000 to 100,000 users six years after launch, Rockstar have practically reinvented the wheel when it comes to online gaming.
Like all games, however, GTA Online is not perfect.
As online services continue to grow in the market, it’s time to have a look at where this monster of a game could potentially be headed in its next iteration.
Rockstar's attempt to replicate all this success with Red Dead Online has led to a fairly deflated, tepid response, but given GTA Online's current status, a fully-fleshed online component for Grant Theft Auto 6 is certain. About as certain as death, taxes and Game of Thrones' final season being talked about for the rest of time.
It'll take something mighty special to continue the momentum of GTA Online as it stands, but if anyone can pull that off, it's Rockstar.
