Publisher Take-Two has announced that Rockstar Games is working on an unannounced next-gen title.
Take-Two confirmed its existence during an investors publisher call yesterday, and revealed that it would be arriving before the end of March 2015…
There was no indication as to what the product might be, leaving tongues wagging as to whether it’s the fabled next-gen GTA 5 remake, a sequel to a current franchise, or indeed a new IP entirely.
Since Grand Theft Auto V shipped in September 2013, a small contingent of Rockstar has been working the Grand Theft Auto online, while the rest have no doubt shifted their attention to this as-yet-untitled new project.
During the same call Take-Two posted record annual profits of $510.7 million, thanks in large part to the success of GTA Online, Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite, and NBA 2K14. Intriguingly Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed that he expected Rockstar to single-handedly account for 45% of the firm’s revenue for the upcoming fiscal year.
This suggests that Take-Two of course has big plans for Rockstar, lending weight to the credence that the superstar developer is working on a follow-up to Red Dead Redemption, which was itself recently rumoured to finally arrive on PC.
Other than the big two there is still the mysterious Agent. Announced in July 2007 as PS3 exclusive, Agent has yet to see the light of day. By now it will have course shifted focus to the next-gen, but after such a protracted development it’s difficult to anticipate when it will surface.
