    It'll continue until Rockstar releases SP content again.

    I don't get it. Who the hell is Take Two? None of the games in the article have Take Two listed as their publisher.

    If EA or Activision popped out GTA V... they would 100% say it didn't meet expectations. laugh

    As far as im aware rockstar games has never been a stand alone company (plc) ever. Its always been a subsidiary of another.

    I’ve played it once for a couple of hours, then it went back on the shelf & hasn’t been touched since. Just couldn’t get into it

    Take Two is the parent company of Rockstar Games since 1998 and 2K Games since 2K Games's founding in 2005

    Correct, in 1998 Take-Two acquired BMG Interactive, and from parts of that acquisition it spun up a successor in Rockstar Games that same year.

    I had to look up Take Two on Wikipedia. That's just so weird. Why does everybody know about EA, Ubisoft, Activision, Bethesda, Capcom, etc., but not Take Two? Why doesn't Take Two's logo ever show up on any loading screens? I've never heard of them until reading this article. I always thought 2K and Rockstar were their own companies.

    Please tell me I'm not the only one who's never heard of Take Two until now redface

    Regardless of who owns what, i dont always love rockstars decisions but, i do respect talent and a very well driven company when i see one.

    Many very good game developers have vanished over the years but rockstar have been ticking boxes for a long time.
    Kudos.

    You know i really disliked the campaign but i think if they had released SOME story DLC i would have given it some slack. Gta V was my least fav gta since its reinvention.

    I don't believe you. Take Two's logo never shows up on any loading screens. Everybody blames Rockstar for their overpriced microtransactions, and nobody's ever mentioned Take Two while discussing them in any forums I've seen.
