Take-Two disclosed its latest financial results, which are defined strong mostly thanks to microtransactions in Grand Theft Auto Online and More.
Is it just me or does it feel like today was a bunch of news about delays? Even if indirectly here.
At least 4 by my count.
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.
@racerx 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.
2020 eh... PS5 launch title?
GTA6 for next gen. Timing seems perfect tbh.
PS5 will more likely release in 2019, so it could come in the first year of next generation.
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.
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
Stefan, 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?
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
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 like...it'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,
Yeah you know what? I think they are doing pretty good, I doubt they need financial info from some random N4G user.
I doubt I have to listen to some off topic random N4G user...
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
Im pretty sure that MP game you speak of already exists in GTAV Online
and I am pretty sure you didn't read Foxtrot's comment.
I don't think most people do.
Nope, I read it. Why would they make a new IP, when essentially GTA Online is its own thing already...
Such a shame that we most likely wont get GTA6 this gen.
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
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.
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.
We definitely will NOT get Elder Scrolls this gen if all the rumors about Starfield are true.
They're making way too much money with GTA Online, and will probably make too much money with RDR2 online going forward.
I think we will see it toward the end of this gen then a next gen port a year later
It might come out on mid 2020 and then be ported to the next gen in 2021 like they did with GTA 5
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
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.
If it's BL3 then i really lost respect for Gearbox.
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.
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.
@Iamtylerdurden1 You hit the nail on the head with ur explanation
IamTyler Yeah I agree. Great explanation.
Yeah we might have had BL3 already if they hadnt wasted their time with Battleborn
@IamTylerDurden1 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.
Damn that sucks but I don't blame them GTA is still racking in tons of money for them so they can take their time with red dead redemption 2. Don't be surprised if ghost of tsushima or The last of us 2 release before the holiday season. If not dreams could be a perfect holiday release.
Red dead redemption was not the delayed game, this is about an unnanounced game that was delayed and how 2018 will be a record year due to RDR2
Lol oh I thought it was red dead redemption 2. Thanks for the heads up.
No problem, the title is confusing
It helps to actually read the article 😆
It could be that new Bioshock game 2K are rumored to be working on.
If Ken Levine isn't working on it, is that really highly anticipated?
If the delayed title is Borderlands 3, which it likely is, then damn is that game taking a while. Fiscal 2020?? No wonder randy came out and said no borderlands at E3. Also puts Rage 2 as a shoe-in to come out first.
So, nothing on Bully II, huh? Shame.
What were we Highly Anticipating ?
Great time to be a gamer...
It very obviously means it's releasing this gen. Any next gen won't be until at least 18 months after 2020.
This header sucks!!!!! I almost thought RDR2 is being delayed.
Most likely GTA VI!
Strong profits due to microtransactions and I see no one complaining.
2020? Not even 2019?!?!? Wow
An UNANNOUNCED game gets delayed, whats the big deal? Sony officially announces games at E3 that won't be out for two or more years after the announcement (e.g. Spider-Man announced 2016 rel 2018, Death Standing announced 2016 release 2019?, Days Gone announced 2016 release 2019 after a delay). What is the big deal about delaying a game a year, a game that hasn't even been officially announced by 2K? Even if it was, say Borderlands 3, (still not an announced game) no date was given to that rumored game anyways.
Again, people buying into micro transactions ruining gaming for the rest of us.
Only company I kno [email protected] can not release a game 85% into the current Gen and still ROCK 🤣🤣🤣
It's going to be insane how fast GTA6 is going to sell. Records will be broken that probably won't be beaten until GTA7.
In the next GTA game they're going to show off some new tech, and also going back to more urban area. Maybe even some form of AI, and for that they just need better hardware, especially the CPU. I hope for Vice City hahah
2025 = PS5
