The lawsuit stated- “GTA Online is particularly noteworthy in that it has its own ‘economy,’ in which online goods can be purchased using virtual ‘currency.’ Real cash is used to purchase virtual currency, which can in turn be spent on virtual goods and services. These purchases have a nearly 100% profit margin, subject only to nominal development costs and app store commissions.”
The lawsuit has been filed by Benzies against Take-Two and in it Benzies claimed that the latter owed $150 million to Benzies in unpaid royalties. However, Take-Two Interactive retorted by dismissing the claims of Benzies.
The counter-suit filed by the company stated that the claims made by Benzies are completely baseless and it only reflects the selfish nature of the former Rockstar North President.
Since Rockstar is earning a huge amount of profit through GTA 5 Online, many believe that this is the reason why the company is so focused on the multiplayer version of the game. Not a single story-content for the offline version of the game has been released by the company since it was released.
At the same time, the company has released a number of DLCs for GTA 5 Online. Experts state that this is just a clever tactic that Rockstar uses to continue drawing players to GTA 5 Online which in turn will allow them to rake in huge profits on a regular basis.
Stay tuned for more update on GTA 5 Online.
