What made it so expensive?

The 200-man team from Rockstar Studios spent around 5 years to develop the game. They did extensive research on the setting of the story which is in São Paulo, Brazil. To make it as natural as possible, they researched on the culture, police, weapons, and even the local gangs and their choice of firearms. The release date was delayed from the original plan of 2009 to 2012.

According to a report from an analyst, it took Rockstar around $105 million dollars, not counting the cost for the years of delayed launch.
