Take-Two Interactive is Working on Sequels and New IP
"Sequels from our biggest franchises as well as exciting new IP" are in the pipeline at Take-Two Interactive
Take-Two Interactive owns notables developers and publishers like Rockstar Games, 2K and Private Division, and it has reported positive results for its performance in Q2 2019. While Take-Two’s financial results statement revealed things such as the release window for the Nintendo Switch port of The Outer Worlds, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick also teased what games are coming from his company in the future.
After highlighting how Take-Two Interactive’s “positive momentum continued in the second quarter” and listing off many of its successful titles like Borderlands 3, Red Dead Redemption 2, and NBA 2K20, he touched on what is in the pipeline. Interestingly, he claims that “Take-Two has the strongest development pipeline in its history, including sequels from our biggest franchises as well as exciting new IP.”
While the highly requested Red Dead Redemption and Borderlands sequels have come out within the last year, Take-Two has their hands in plenty of other franchises people would like to see more of. Grand Theft Auto, Mafia, XCOM, and BioShock all definitely come to mind. Tossing some new IPs in there as well is good to hear, and Zelnick elaborated exactly on what these aforementioned new IPs and sequels will be capitalizing on.
“We are actively investing in emerging markets, platforms and business models, and are exceedingly well-positioned to capitalize on the positive trends in our industry and to generate growth and margin expansion over the long-term,” he said. Of course, DualShockers will be sure to let you know when Take-Two decides to share more about the “strongest development pipeline in its history.
