The game is constantly struggling with various types of problems and controversies. Nevertheless, according to the CEO of Take-Two Interactive, the game is more successful than GTA Online at the same point in time after its release.
The information was provided during the quarterly investor call (via Seeking Alpha). Strauss Zelnick doesn't specify what is the measure of this success - we don't know if it's about the number of players, earnings or any other kind of statistics.
