Game developer Rockstar Games, of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption fame, is currently working on new games, parent company Take-Two Interactive has confirmed.
Rockstar Games has released a huge library of great games over the years, and Take-Two has confirmed that this year will be no different. "Rockstar Games is of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon," Take-Two said in its earnings report this year.
Whether or not it's another Grand Theft Auto title, there were no other details given. The game, however, was mentioned as one of the reasons of Take-Two's increased revenue this year.
"Our results were driven by the continued extraordinary performance of Grand Theft Auto V, ongoing momentum in our NBA 2K and WWE 2K series, the successful launch of XCOM 2, and our highest-ever revenue from recurrent consumer spending," Chairman and CEO of Take-Two Interactive Strauss Zelnick has confirmed.
Zelnick went on to confirm the future of Take-Two, citing a diverse lineup of upcoming games. 2K Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive, recently released first-person shooter Battleborn on May 3. NBA 2K17 will be released in September, while Mafia III, Sid Meier's Civilization VI, and WWE 2K17 will all be released sometime in October. No Rockstar titles were mentioned, which means whatever game Rockstar is developing right now, fans might not get their hands on it until sometime next year.
Zelnick has also said that Take-Two will have a major presence on the upcoming video game trade show E3. "We will be there in a big way," Zelnick told MCV. Speculations include a Red Dead Redemption prequel, fueled by a 'map leak' as reported by TechRadar last month. There were also rumors of a Bioshock collection in the works, but this was never confirmed.
Whether it's a full-blown Red Dead Redemption game or a GTA V DLC, people will find out in a couple of weeks.With E3 just around the corner, and with other major game developers gearing up for their own announcements, it's just a matter of time before Rockstar Games releases new information.
