Rockstar Tease Impending Videogame Announcements
Rockstar Games, the developer behind Grand Theft Auto V, and Red Dead Redemption is “hard at work” on new projects, with an announcement coming soon, according to parent company Take-Two Interactive.
This filthy tease comes as part of Take-Two’s latest earnings report, and with E3 on the horizon, one would imagine that something massive is coming.
While Take-Two stopped short of sharing any real details, they did say:
Rockstar Games is of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.
Take-Two president Karl Slatoff did mention during an earnings call that the company is working on a new IP to diversify that sweet portfolio, but it’s not clear if Rockstar are working on that new IP, or a more familiar franchise.
It’s also worth noting that CEO Strauss Zelnick said on the call that Take-Two has announced its complete slate for the current fiscal year, and no Rockstar titles are on it. So whatever their new game is, don’t expect it for a while.
Zelnick has also recently teased big plans for E3, and back in April a map that was believed to be for a new Red Dead game leaked online.
I think it’s safe to say that a Red Dead sequel would fall under “big plans” and would likely win E3 hands down.
It’s also important to note that Take-Two mentioned projects, plural. So, it could be that they’re working on a number of sequels to familiar games and a new IP. Whatever the games turn out to be, I’m sure they’ll be awesome.
