Take-Two Interactive, the parent company for video game developers like Rockstar and 2K Games, announced that while the coming year will be light in terms of releases, it is planning to release 93 titles over the next five years, including games from across its many studios.
In a call with investors today to discuss its Q4 2020 results, Take-Two shared a bit about its “strongest pipeline in its history.” While the company specifically said that the coming fiscal year, which ends in March 2021, will be “light” in terms of new games, the company is planning a massive wave of titles starting in fiscal 2022.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/11/09/what-gta-6-can-learn-from-red-dead-2″]

IGN learned from an anonymous source close to Rockstar Games that the next game in the Grand Theft Auto series, most likely GTA 6, is currently in early development. Take-Two announced its planned 93 titles range from casual mobile games to triple-A releases, but did not mention if the next GTA game was part of the line-up. Though five years is a wide window.
In other Take-Two news, Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold 130 million units. GTA 5 is a staggering sales success and despite being on sale for the past 7 years, continues to sell thanks to the popularity of GTA Online. GTA 5 was recently offered as the Epic Games Store’s free game and it temporarily took the store offline due to demand.[poilib element=”accentDivider”]
