Following the recent news that 2K Games would not have a presence at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, Take-Two has announced that none of their properties will be on the showfloor in any form. At the forefront is Grand Theft Auto V, one of the most anticipated games of this year; the list of no-shows also includes the recently-announced The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and WWE 2K14.

Take-Two’s president, Karl Slatoff, clarified that the teams behind the games would be at the show in some capacity, but that companies such as Rockstar Games and 2K Games would be focusing, “marketing and PR efforts on a series of events throughout the spring and summer.”

Grand Theft Auto V, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, and WWE 2K14 are all set to be released on multiple platforms between September and October.
