GTA won't follow Call of Duty model

Take-Two has stated that the Grand Theft Auto franchise will avoid releasing yearly titles like the Call of Duty games to keep interest high. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Quality takes time and effort.

#2 reason why I love Rockstar
#1 is GTA.

#2 is Red Dead Redemption

They could release Yearly Episodes similar to GTA4 Liberty City Episodes... it doesn't hurt.
MurDocINC  +   1169d ago
Dunno why people disagree with you. 1 year is enough to add a quality story to an existing city.
BioDio  +   1169d ago
Beats me too... I wouldn't mind a 5-10 hours content DLC for like.. 10 euros...

@BioDio
And all that manpower could be utilized in contributing to other IP. Notice how R* is closing it's other branches other than North? If the GTA series start to stagnate, they can no longer support themeselves.

Good. Open world games on a yearly release schedule just isn't a business model I would recommend following. Just look at how it's messed with the Assassin's Creed series. If Ubisoft hadn't insisted on a holiday 2012 release for AC3 and waited until 2013 then the game probably wouldn't have felt so rushed and buggy.

I love R* and I really Respect T2.

In my humble opinion they have published the best value for money multiplat games this gen.

They seem to understand gamers better then most of the others and they seem to really give their devs time to create quality games.

Must respect to you.

Thank god for that I have total respect for rockstar/T2

Well isn't it obvious? GTA V is half a decade later.
SuperSonic266  +   1170d ago
wished they would release it every 2 years :( it will be 5 years when gta 5 is out
Moncole  +   1170d ago
Everyone already know this.
Sniperwithacause  +   1170d ago
Exactly. How many times must R* and T2 repeat themselves? We needed an article for this?
andron666  +   1170d ago
Good to hear. Just look at AC and Cod, the annual releases really makes me spend less and less time with each new entry.

Better to really wait some for a really awesome game than have a ok one every year...
sdozzo  +   1170d ago
Not many games can do yearly releases. How is this news. I don't think anyone expected a yearly release of GTA anyways.
Unlimax  +   1170d ago
Who is Call of duty Compared to GTA history .. Seriously !?

Oh People this gen are making me sick for real -.-" .

Old news.
It's not like Rockstar is even capable of releasing a GTA game yearly.
attilayavuzer  +   1169d ago
Didn't vice city and san andreas come out roughly a year apart?
TheModernKamikaze  +   1169d ago
They said they CAN do it but choose not to.
KrimsonKody  +   1169d ago
Really guys?
Comparing GTA to CoD?
I mean, what's next?; Who's the better platformer, Mario or Kratos?
BioDio  +   1169d ago
Mario is the best platformer for sure, but, Kratos has better combat =)

/sarcasm
KrimsonKody  +   1169d ago
Lol!
Well, the combat could be arguable;
Kratos relies on the gods to grant him power,
Mario will slay you with a turtle shell.
PhoenixRising37  +   1169d ago
Now I need to hear that multiplayer won't have class loadouts and pointstreaks and then i'm the happiest man alive!
SageHonor  +   1169d ago
I'd like to see a Bully sequel sometime soon
gamernova  +   1169d ago
Rockstar revolutionizes their gta series far more than any game anyone ever made in a series. It is no wonder they take time. Not to say call of duty bo2 sucks because it really doesn't but gtas quality is beyond anything. I would even say beyond skyrim as well.
Valenka  +   1168d ago
Well, now that the obvious has been stated...

Rockstar has never released yearly Grand Theft Auto titles, so why would they start now? Same goes for loadouts and kill-streaks.
