The Doomsday Heist is coming to Grand Theft Auto Online on December 12th.
GTA is one of the most popular series all time and very lucrative for its developer and publisher.
With GTA 5, there came GTA Online, a multiplayer add-on to the game with its open world map to be explored and with various tasks, challenges and missions to complete. It was popular and the gamers were instantly hooked.
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said in November 2015 that more than 8 million people were playing GTA Online every week.
A report now states that GTA Online micro transaction has grossed the impressive half billion dollars. Players are able to speed up their progress by buying in-game stuff with real money.
We can gratulate Rockstar for a good game and a very profitable business model.
Take- Two has announced that it has shipped 60 million GTA 5 copies to retailers. The series has now sold 220 million copies.
GTA Online has also generated revenue for the publisher, so it seems that gamers’ interest for the title is not lowering any time soon.

Lowriders are coming to GTA Online next week, on October 20.
Lowriders are coming to Grand Theft Auto Online!
Visit Benny’s website via the shortcut on your in-game phone to choose from a half-dozen select customizable vehicles – then bring them down to the man himself for an upgrade that unlocks new custom lowrider mods. Deck out your engine block with covers and air filters, coat your interiors with velour, leather and patterns, choose custom colors and designs for your dials, or add a new steering wheel and custom shift levers. Give your ride lift with hydraulics – the more powerful the pumps, the higher you can bounce. And boost your stereo’s performance with new speakers and subs in the back.
Players will be able to use the Player Interaction Menu while inside or outside the car to open up the vehicle doors, hood and trunk, switch on the engine to flash your neons and bump your favorite radio station for all to admire. Crew car shows are about to go next level.
Oh, and there will be new missions as well. Head over to Rockstar‘s page for more info on the Lowriders update: http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52515/gta-online-lowriders-coming-next-week-october-20th
