GTA Online sees brisk microtransaction purchases

This previous year saw the highest profits for GTA: Online since the GTA V persistent multiplayer mode was introduced, and with over five million copies of Rockstar's flagship franchise shipped since May, it looks like there's no stopping it.

Another day, another Grand Theft Auto 5 sales milestone.

Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto V has carved its place in history, with sales in North America reaching 85 million copies.

Grand Theft Auto Online has apparently had its most profitable quarter as well, likely due to "recurrent consumer spending" which saw an 84% increase for Take-Two year-over-year. The game, originally released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, has also been rolled out to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game now has Metacritic scores that range from 96-98 across all the platforms and has earned over 150 Game of the Year Awards.
