Nevertheless, this hasn't stopped Respawn from developing exciting new additions to their Mech title.
As announced earlier this month, the update--"one of GTA Online's biggest and deepest updates yet," Rockstar said--is titled "Further Adventures in Finance and Felony."As the name suggests, it builds on the Executives and Other Criminals update, which came out in 2015."Further Adventures in Finance and Felony continues a player's mission to become the ultimate criminal kingpin of Los Santos and Blaine County in one of GTA Online's biggest and deepest updates yet," reads a line from the description.Players will be able to expand their criminal networks and become the CEO of what's being called a "Criminal Enterprise." As part of this, players can purchase a high-rise office and warehouses that can be used to sell and store "a range of contraband."The update also adds some new vehicles, one of which is the Pegassi Reaper (see it in the gallery above)."As a Senior Multiplayer Programmer you will influence the architecture and drive the implementation of all multiplayer technology in the Avalanche Apex engine."This is a great opportunity to work with some of the most complex and rewarding challenges in game development today; Open worlds, sandbox gameplay and highly destructible multiplayer environments."As with most multiplayer development, a keen sense of fun gameplay and that 6th sense for what gives the perfect "feeling" are both key aspects for this role."Perhaps it will be a new Just Cause sequel, or maybe something completely different.The news comes as one industry analyst predicts a 2020 release date for the PS5.The PS5 could already have its first blockbuster game, as Avalanche Studios hints at what's to come for the next-gen.
While the PS5 release date remains a mystery, Just Cause developer Avalanche has provided further proof that the next-generation of consoles is coming.Take-Two lawsuit revealed that the multiplayer mode has already brought in more than 0 million in revenue from microtransactions.Single-player DLC for GTA V is still under consideration, but the big numbers for GTA Online may explain why Rockstar appears to be prioritizing multiplayer content at this time.“And I think the natural extension of that is the PS4 Pro becomes the default PS4, and they just knock that price down to 0 when they can and they keep selling it - a ton of those.“The PS5 is probably going to be their real 4K device, and so it just feels to me that they're not going to launch the PS5 until sales momentum for the PS4 slows, and it just hasn't.In comments reported by PSU, industry analyst Michael Pachter said: "I think that's exactly when you'll see one (PS5) 2019 or 2020, and if I had to bet, it's 2020.
