Rockstar's output this generation has been atrocious.

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

That's the best case for quality>>>>quantity, it's like PlayStation first party's produce this gen when compared to the last that I saw discussed in another thread. It's a good sign, we don't need games like NBA2K which releases a "new" iteration every single year just to add more casino element.

Riding that nonstop gta v wave. Pretty lazy.



Just an old man, a family man, and a gamer. My family is more important to me then life itself. 

I don't care as long as they make kickass energy drinks.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

They could probably keep GTA Online going indefinitely as a platform, cease all other game development, and still make more money than they did in the days of Bully, GTA SA/4, The Warriors, and Red Dead Revolver. I remember that there were quite a few times in the late 2000s where they were bleeding money in between GTAs (probably making the next GTA) to the point where EA was eyeing them as a potential takeover target.

NBA 2K is their other big moneymakers. I looked it up and was surprised to find out there were years within this generation where NBA 2K sold more copies than Madden did.



Why make other games when you can just pop out a Casino (yes, a freaking casino !) in your game to prey upon people addictive personalities who got mental health issues to deal with this kind of behavior.

That's geniously evil ... yet disgusting. Of course, they're probably preparing the next GTA games to release cross-platforms in like 2 or 3 years to make sure their bank will roll smoothly as ever.

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.

This.

I remember when Blizzard came out with WoW.  Before WoW, Blizzard used to make a lot of amazing games.  After WoW, the Blizzard pipeline slowed to a crawl.  I think the same thing has happened with Rockstar and GTA Online.



It takes a lot of time and work to pull a open world game today because every new iteraction of a rockstar open world game is bigger and has more features than the previous one. So GTA6 will probably take more time to make than GTA5, but will also be bigger and have more stuff to do.



Worst part is, RDR 2 isn't even a good game.

Yeah Sony 1st party studios really decreased the number of games they launch compared to PS3 era due to same reason as Rockstar: more time dedicated to develop a game.
