Rockstar's output this generation has been atrocious.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Rockstar's output this generation has been atrocious.

Here's a list of rock stars releases last gen

2006: Rockstar presents table tennis 

2007: manhunt 2 (this is a cross gen title that released on ps2 and Wii at the same time.

2008: GTA 4

2008: Midnight club: LA

2009: GTA: Chinatown wars

2009: beaterator

2010: red dead redemption 

2011: LA noire

2012: Max Payne 3

2013: GTA V

Then moving onto the current gen

2018: red dead redemption 2

They have gone from making 10 games in one generation to just making 1. I understand that developing games is getting more expensive at takes longer, but going from 10 to 1 is just ridiculous. They also made more single player DLC in the last gen.

It's a bit unfair. GTA Online is pretty much a different game altogether and GTA V is cross-gen as well. But yeah, they have fallen behind massively.



You are missing Bully and Episodes from Liberty City, pretty big expansions tbh.

If we count cross gen, then last gen also gets bully. I don't keep up to date with gta online are the updates for that big?

Yeah, Bully came out on Xbox 360 and Wii in enhanced form, only PS3 didn't get it's version.

I left bully off because there was a gap between its ps2 release and its release on newer hardware. I decided to leave expansions off. But I did mention that they made a lot more single player DLC last gen.

If you included them then current gen list would look even worse... I mean we had story DLC's for GTA IV, RDR and L.A. Noire.



It's honestly really simple. GTA Online makes more money for them than pretty much all of those other games combined, so they don't really have the incentive to produce more games. It's sad and unfortunately another sign of the where the AAA video game industry is heading right now. It's all about these big live service/online games that they can monetize in perpetuity rather than actually developing new and interesting games.



yeah it's really a damn shame that GTA V is so successful. It's also not even close to being my favourite GTA game.
This games as a service attitude is completely killing creativity.



R* dont need to make any games with the ammount of money GTA5+Microtrans are making them.
