Why Grand Theft Auto Won't Be Annualized

Take-Two is hoping that one day it's known more for its high-production, big-budget titles and less about its legendary game delays and long development cycles. The company has recently been aiming to streamline production without sacrificing quality.

Take-Two Chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick spoke at the UBS Annual Global Media and Communications Conference in New York City today and explained why Take-Two doesn't follow Activision in releasing major, annualized titles such as Call of Duty.

take 2 plz dont make of our favorite franchises a complete glitchy mess with uninspired and repetitive gameplay and stpid AI that gets released annually even if a bunch of ignorants still may buy it... thank you

I agree that GTA shouldn't be annualized. But waiting 4 years between GTA's is just too much waiting.

Take 2= Best publishers right now, they understand needs and likes of gamers, they strive for quality and they actually respect both gamers and franchises. Gotta love them.

T2 has enough open world game series already. No need to whore out GTA every year like COD.

Its hanging out with Resident Evil Portable, Eight Days, Getaway 3 and Final Fantasy VII Remake in some bar...

Glad that DNF got out of that place cause its starting to rot.

I have a feeling that Agent isn't going to be talked about in terms of when it's releasing first, but rather have a huge reveal with gameplay footage right off the bat. We're owed that at this point in time.

that's great... WHERE THE HELL IS GTA V??????

Also instead of an annual GTA, they should remake those glorious GTA of past into HD gems

This is how all gaming companies should work.

Stop trying to cheat people out of their money by releasing a game of a franchise year after year with minor updates.

Instead release a game whenever, but it has to have major changes and be polished.

Don't blame the publishers blame the whack ass people who go to the store and pay $60 every year for a annual release title. If people don't buy the games they won't get released. Look at Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero people stop paying for that trash so they stopped being released annually. Blame the consumer, not the business man. If you wanted to give me millions of dollars every year, I would take it, every year.
