Not even for that. Imagine the GTA developers doing a crowd funding project. I am willing to bet they would get more money than they got from publishers.

GTA 4 costs $100 million ...



But how much of that is marketing? And how much for music licensing?

I don't doubt it's an expensive genre (at all), but I think it could be done cheaper with a lot of the gameplay intact.


Their music licensing bill for Vice City was absurd. I can't remember what it was exactly, and trying to find it now just gets you to the "Vice City removed from steam because of music licensing issues!" but it was somewhere in the 30 to 50 million bucks range.

If they got Joco to do some songs and didn't have an ad on every single major advertisement slot on TV for six months, I'm pretty sure their total bill would be quite a bit lower.
