Man, I was really hoping for Red Dead Redemption 3 but I guess this is it. RIP Rockstar, never milked a franchise :(

They haven't made a succesful game since Enter the Gecko, though that sold five billions so maybe they still have money for the next month?

Their games were too niche. Jack Thompson was right that they were also too violent, which I'm sure is what led to their games not selling enough.

Yeah, no. This is pretty impossible. GTAV online activity is still huge (last I heard). There’s no way that they are shutting it down anytime soon. Also the reasons its giving for it closing is basically the gaming industry bane of existence. Rockstar’s crunch time and environment seems pretty shitty, but I don’t know if it will just close and that’s it.

Imagine waking up on January first, and this is what you do. That's quite a way to get the year rolling for yourself.

I didn't believe it at first but the evidence definitely convinced me.

I guess Rockstar had a good run.

Yeah Rockstar was never going to take off. I mean who even buys games about cowboys? That's just gay, yo.

That's what happens when you abandon your best IP (Bully) and focus on the boring ones (GTA/RDR).

GTA 6 is rockstar's final score, after that they're off to Tahiti to become mango farmers.
