Grand Theft Auto Online Just Had Its Best Quarter Ever
Grand Theft Auto Online just had its best quarter, ever, for parent company Take-Two Interactive.
In its quarterly earnings release, Take-Two reported net revenue from digitally-delivered content grew 72% over the same period last year, with GTA Online leading the pack for "recurrent consumer spending."
Recurrent consumer spending refers to "virtual currency, downloadable add-on content and microtransactions," but it's not just GTA Online fans are spending real money on. NBA 2K17 also keeps bringing home the bacon for the company, both in recurrent spending and in over-all sales, with 2K17 now holding the title of Take-Two Interactive's best-selling sports title ever.

Take Two cancels plans to stop printing money via Grand Theft Auto Online
(credit: Rockstar Games )
When will Grand Theft Auto Online stop operating? The series' developers at Rockstar and its corporate parents at Take Two have hinted at an eventual cancellation , but we've finally gotten official word that the wildly popular online game's updates were going to be canceled... until plans changed.
In a note tucked into a very successful-sounding report for its first 2018 fiscal quarter, Take Two confirmed that the company will "extend the life" of both Grand Theft Auto V and its GTA Online mode—which implies that its lifespan had been finite. Neither Wednesday's quarterly report nor any other official Rockstar or Take Two announcements, including the past year of Take Two financial disclosures, spelled out a timeline for the GTA Online product, which continues to receive content updates for both its free and paid content.
Take Two's Q1 2018 financial report saw year-over-year net revenue grow by a whopping 31 percent, to the tune of $418.2 million. That jump largely came in the form of "digitally delivered net revenue," which grew 56 percent. Do the math, and you'll see a year-over-year net revenue jump of $106.8 million and a digitally delivered net revenue jump of $96.1 million. (This comes, by the way, in a quarter where Take Two's subsidiaries did not release a single new game SKU.) Take Two did not clarify exactly how those purchases are split between retail-game purchases via online retailers, and add-on or DLC purchases within a game's internal storefront, but it did indicate that GTA Online purchases led the charge for the publisher's revenue jump.
