I don't know about those ratios, I remember COD:MW3 had something like 50 million development budget and 200 million marketing budget.

I seriously doubt you get a team of that many people building that much content for just 50 million bucks. I'd reckon in actual story missions alone, GTA is probably five to ten times bigger than CoD, and then you get the entire world which needs to be hand-built.

Many single-player games offer hundreds of hours of "content" and cost nowhere near even $50M, including marketing. I'm with the guy who thinks that if there is any reality to this figure at all (very doubtful) then 80%-90% of it is being spent on marketing. I'm also with the guy who thinks a company would be beyond foolish to spend this kind of money on development of a single game...;) Insane, maybe. A huge target for stockholder lawsuits, etc. It is likely not even close to being true, imo.
