Take-Two Interactive is one of the largest publishers on the market and it is very well known to all, with giants such as Rockstar Games, 2K Sports, 2K Games, and many other studios that continue to bill billions for the American company every year. However, after the announcement in May 2020, Take-Two Interactive has returned to reiterate in the past few hours that it is working on the simultaneous creation of 93 games and that these will be released in the next five years, also revealing some more specific details.
The colossal set of investments ranges in fact in almost all genres of the video game market, passing from new IPs to the creation of the great colossal that have made the company famous such as Grand Theft Auto and Bioshock.
Of the 93 titles discussed, the US giant has stated that 63 will be hardcore experiences, 17 defined as Midcore and the remaining designed for a casual gamer audience. Furthermore, 47 are IPs already known to the public, while the other 46 are all-new intellectual properties.
It also seems that Take-Two also wants to expand the market to all possible platforms and forms of distribution available, given that 72 titles will be available on classic gaming devices such as PCs and consoles, the rest will be dedicated to mobile gaming with smartphones and tablets; and again, 23 will use the free to play formula, while the others will normally be sold in the stores.
Unfortunately, despite the specific numbers of the genres, we still know almost none of the upcoming names and we can only speculate the arrival of more conscious titles. For example, it seems like an eternity since Grand Theft Auto 5 hit the market way back in 2013, guaranteeing billions for Take-Two and Rockstar.
Still, rumors of GTA 6’s arrival have been countless over the course of all these years, with some insiders recently saying on Reddit that the title will be set in Miami and the game’s debut could be in 2023. Another title that has held sway over the past few years is certainly a sequel to the BioShock series, which with the first two chapters set in the sunken city of Rapture and the third set in the flying Columbia has bewitched millions of players and created in us the desire to see a new chapter as soon as possible. It seems, however, that we shouldn’t have to wait indefinitely as the project has already been officially announced in 2019.
