Rockstar Games is one of the latest games companies to reveal it's supporting COVID-19 relief efforts, announcing that 5% of all in-game revenue in GTA Online and Red Dead Online will be donated through April and May. The company released a statement via its website indicating the following:
"Starting April 1st and continuing through the end of May, 5% of our revenue from purchases in our online games, GTA Online and Red Dead Online, will be donated to COVID-19 relief efforts. These funds will be used to help local communities and businesses struggling with the impacts of COVID-19, both directly and by supporting some of the amazing organizations who are on the ground helping those affected by this crisis. As things progress, we will share more on these efforts."
Needless to say it's a great gesture, and while it might sound like a relatively small percentage, the sheer volume of purchases made via GTA Online and Red Dead Online will likely result in a very big total come the end of May.
