Kotaku reports which according to the last year in the transmission tools company review report StreamElements, Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most-watched game on Twitch, dominating a list full of games that have been solidly at the top for several years in a row.
It may sound a bit surprising that an eight-year-old game is still topping the Twitch charts, but that’s because Twitch doesn’t differentiate between Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online, the source of the extremely long tail of the former and a Seemingly endless source of content for the streaming giant and its users. Other games that have staying power in chat include League of Legends, Fortnite, and Valorant.
Elsewhere in the report, the most viewed new IP was ranked 18th on New World, Amazon’s popular MMORPG. And you can also see a good dose of mobile games that register high numbers, such as Call of Duty: Mobile and PUBG MOBILE.
Even away from Twitch, Grand Theft Auto Online remains a phenomenon with regular updates. However, that doesn’t stop fans from asking where the next entry in the series is. It’s not that developer Rockstar can’t go wrong with the series though, as the failed release of the GTA Trilogy led to him giving away a free game like an olive branch to dissatisfied gamers to make up for things.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is now available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. Grand Theft Auto Online is also available for the same systems.
