Is it just me or does it feel like today was a bunch of news about delays? Even if indirectly here.

RacerX94d ago

Saddest news was that Take Two made RECORD PROFITS because of GTAV micro transactions.

Gamers aren't pushing back. Micro transactions are just our new way of gaming. Sad.

yeahokwhatever94d ago

Yeah. Not only that, but the MTs RUINED GTAV. It's entirely pointless to even log on. They insist on showing everyone on the minimap in order to PROMOTE griefing because everything of any value in GTA can be purchased with real $. Griefing leads to anger, anger leads to rage purchases and orbital strikes. The whole thing is stupid. I'm real iffy about even giving them money for RDR.

gamerzero95d ago

2020 eh... PS5 launch title?

KyRo95d ago

GTA6 for next gen. Timing seems perfect tbh.

MrSec8495d ago

PS5 will more likely release in 2019, so it could come in the first year of next generation.

YodaCracker95d ago (Edited 95d ago )

Fiscal year 2020, which runs from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020. I highly doubt the PS5 will release in that window. Fall 2020 at the earliest.

stefan_77195d ago

GTA is too big to skip a generation. I can see it launching at the end of this gen with a next gen version a year later

UltraNova95d ago


I do not disagree but why disturb the cash cow called GTAV online, that is already proven, up and running and most importantly has a huge fanbase that keeps spending on it?

It makes total sense to see GTA skip this gen. Rockstar is in a position to release one huge game per gen amd make billions. Why fix something that aint broken?

RedDevils94d ago

I kinda lol for those that own PS4pro and it Ps5 release next year. I think PS5 will release in 2020 at the earliest

Probably trying to curb disappointments from nothing at E3

3-4-594d ago

what other games ?

2018 will be loaded in the back half of the year anyways so some getting pushed to 2019 makes 2019 a stronger year than it already would have been.

You'd think they'd just make an online based new IP similar to the online in GTA Online so they can focus even more on the single player for games like GTA or Red Dead while the newly created game would rake in the multiplayer money. They could just continue that one IP for like an entire gen, updating it until next gen comes around.

The brand name goes beyond GTA, Red Dead and the's Rockstar. Put "Rockstar presents" before an announcement and you've automatically gained attention. They have the brand power, money and resources to make a massive online focused new IP game and to keep that game going for a full gen if they wanted. Just my thoughts,

Phunkydiabetic195d ago

Yeah you know what? I think they are doing pretty good, I doubt they need financial info from some random N4G user.

-Foxtrot95d ago

I doubt I have to listen to some off topic random N4G user...

ScootaKuH94d ago

Yeah you know what? Last time I checked it wasn't illegal for someone to be able to have their own opinion. At least he was offering something to the actual topic which is more than you did

WilliamSheridan95d ago

Im pretty sure that MP game you speak of already exists in GTAV Online

OhMyGandhi95d ago

and I am pretty sure you didn't read Foxtrot's comment.

No Way95d ago

I don't think most people do.

WilliamSheridan92d ago

Nope, I read it. Why would they make a new IP, when essentially GTA Online is its own thing already...

Kabaneri95d ago (Edited 95d ago )

Such a shame that we most likely wont get GTA6 this gen.

DivineAssault 95d ago

I think this pace would work perfectly.. These games cost a crap ton of money and take time to create.. Id rather have a red dead then GTA each gen.. That way it doesnt get stale.. If they could only chill on the MT tho

Prince_TFK94d ago

We used to have many other games in between from Rockstar such as Bully, The Warrior, Midnight Club, and Max Payne. I miss those kindda games from Rockstar.

The 10th Rider95d ago

Hell, at this point we probably get Elder Scrolls this gen either. I bet both will release cross-generation early in the next generation though.

Kabaneri95d ago

We definitely will NOT get Elder Scrolls this gen if all the rumors about Starfield are true.

Abriael95d ago (Edited 95d ago )

They're making way too much money with GTA Online, and will probably make too much money with RDR2 online going forward.

stefan_77195d ago

I think we will see it toward the end of this gen then a next gen port a year later

Razmiran95d ago

It might come out on mid 2020 and then be ported to the next gen in 2021 like they did with GTA 5

DivineAssault 94d ago

Thats probably whats going to happen.. If we do see it this gen anyway.. I thought there were leaks a while back for a new bully game too

Razmiran94d ago

Its weird, RDR2 is their first game in 5 years. But before GTA 5 they put out a game per year for a long time

Definitely Borderlands 3. Which is fine, though they'll be competing with Rage 2 next year. Both games will likely release between April and June to get away from the big holiday shooters.

IamTylerDurden195d ago

If it's BL3 then i really lost respect for Gearbox.

IamTylerDurden195d ago (Edited 95d ago )

Borderlands 2 released in 2012. If Borderlands 3 releases in 2020 (i know FY 2020 could be 2019) it will be 8 years since Gearbox developed a new Borderlands and the sequel that EVERYONE wanted. An entire generation might go by without a Borderlands sequel. Presequel released 2014 only on last gen and it was developed by 2K. The Remastered Collection was nice but c'mon. We got filler like an inferior spin off via a different developer , a remaster, and a Tell Tale game when we really just wanted BL3.

Gearbox lost touch with reality and disrespected the one thing that made them relevant, Borderlands. They didn't want to be known as the Borderlands studio and they poored everything into a weird moba shooter instead of doing BL3. They just really seemed like they wanted to separate themselves from Borderlands and it was disrespectful to the fans.

IamTylerDurden195d ago (Edited 95d ago )

Look at what Gearbox did after the massively successful BL2 in 2012.

2013 - Colonial Marines
2015 - Borderlands Remaster
2016 - Homeworld (published)
2016 - Battleborn
2016 - Duke Nukem 20th
2017 - Bulletstorm Remaster (published)
2018 - We Happy Few (Published)

They even pimped out the brand to Tell Tale and they let 2K develop a spinoff rather than actually make the sequel everybody wanted. With all that activity Randy couldn't sneak in BL3 to the schedule?

Do you really question why i have an issue with how GB handled the franchise? Seriously? People disagree? I love Borderlands and every year i hope to see BL3 at E3. Gearbox mismanaged the brand and lost some fans.

moomoo31995d ago (Edited 95d ago )

You hit the nail on the head with ur explanation

Unreal0195d ago


Yeah I agree. Great explanation.

Herbiwhore94d ago

Yeah we might have had BL3 already if they hadnt wasted their time with Battleborn

dumahim94d ago

So long awaited sequels lose respect for the developer? They sure do seem to sell pretty well when the developer takes their own sweet time and releases a kickass game like God of War or GTAV.

I mean, I get it. I want BL3 done too, but they wanted to work on other stuff. As long as the game is awesome when we get it, I'll be fine.
