Apart from game sales, GTA V generates revenue through subscriptions and in-game purchases, making up a huge portion of its total earnings. Here’s a snippet from Take Two Games’ Fiscal Year 2023 Financial Highlights that shares the data:

“Recurrent consumer spending (which is generated from ongoing consumer engagement and includes virtual currency, add-on content, in-game purchases, and in-game advertising) increased 84% and accounted for 78% of total GAAP net revenue.

Digitally-delivered GAAP net revenue increased 62% to $5.09 billion, as compared to $3.15 billion in fiscal year 2022, and accounted for 95% of total GAAP net revenue. The largest contributors to GAAP net revenue were NBA 2K23 and NBA 2K22; Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V; Empires & Puzzles; our hyper-casual mobile portfolio; Toon Blast; Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online; Words With Friends; and Merge Dragons.”

All of this made the title one of the most financially successful entertainment products of all time. The game itself costed $200 million to make and with revenue generated close to $8.5 billion, the profits have been massive.
