As part of their Christmas update, Rockstar and Grand Theft Auto V are offering numerous sales for the game itself, as well as numerous in-game purchases necessary to start your criminal empire.

It’s Christmas time, which means sales aplenty across the vast world of video games. And if you’ve been good this year, treat yourself to the game that rewards you for being bad.


There are a host of different sales available for Grand Theft Auto V, for both the game itself and some notable in-game purchases, so check out the comprehensive guide to those sales below.

RockstarThe GTAV deal on the Rockstar Launcher lasts until Jan 7.

Game sales

Grand Theft Auto V is on sale across all platforms during the holidays, with some pretty sweet deals involved. For PC players, you can buy the Premium edition for just $9.89 directly from the Rockstar Launcher. 


The launcher is required even if you buy from Steam, so if you want the best value, buying from the Launcher directly seems like the best option. If you’re still trying to use Steam, either because you have Steam funds or want some of the Christmas coins as part of Steam’s Holiday sale, GTAV costs $15 for the standard version, or $20 for the Premium version.

For those buying the Premium version, it comes with the Criminal Enterprise Starter pack, which is billed as everything you would need when you start GTA Online. It gives you $1 million cash as well as a collection of properties, vehicles, weapons, and outfits. It does not include the properties required for the Doomsday Heist or the new Diamond Heist.

Typically, the Premium version for GTA runs for $30 on the Rockstar Launcher, or $40 on Steam, so no matter which platform you buy it from on PC, you’re getting a good deal.


Console players have access to a good sale price as well. PS3 users can get Grand Theft Auto V for $10, marked down from its usual $20. PS4 players can grab it for $15, and that’s the Premium Edition that includes the Criminal Enterprise Starter pack. That sale is available until January 17th.

Rockstar / PlayStation Store

Xbox One players can get the standard edition of GTAV for $18, but if they take advantage of Microsoft and Xbox’s promotion of Xbox Ultimate Game Pass for $1 for three months, they can get the standard edition for $15.

Even if you don’t use the Ultimate pass for anything else, like the three months of Discord Nitro, the six months of Spotify Premium, or instant access to games like Gears of War, Halo the MCC, The Outer Worlds, and Minecraft, you can essentially get $2 off of GTAV for nothing.


In-game sales

If you already own the game, or are looking to spend some of that $1 million you get for acquiring the Premium version, there are a ton of worthy in-game purchases you can make that take advantage of some terrific deals.

RockstarPremium edition purchasers will be able to run heists right away.

Numerous in-game properties are 50% off, including Motorcycle Club clubhouses and businesses, executive offices, Bunkers, Hangars, and Facilities.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

Franklin from GTA V

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
