Take-Two – the mum or dad firm behind 2K, Rockstar, and Private Division – has launched its newest monetary earnings report, and with it an replace to the checklist of titles the corporate has in manufacturing. In fiscal yr 2022, which ends on March 31, 2021, Take-Two will launch 4 new “immersive core” video games, and half of them will likely be from new franchises.

“In fiscal 2022, we plan to deliver an exciting array of offerings, including four immersive core releases, of which two will be from new franchises,” CEO Strauss Zelnick says in a press release. Take-Two usually contains sports activities titles in its ‘immersive core’ label, so it’s seemingly the two current franchises are WWE 2K and NBA 2K.

That leaves us questioning what the new franchises launched this yr will likely be, and there’s not a lot of a clue simply but. While “new franchise” suggests new IP, it’s doable that these will likely be licensed video games, which might nonetheless be a new franchise to 2K. The one thing we know for sure is that none of those 4 ‘immersive core’ video games will likely be free-to-play.

In fiscal years 2023 and 2024 – which means up to March 31, 2023 – Take-Two plans to launch 19 ‘immersive core’ video games. (I’ll hold placing that time period in quotes as a result of it’s nonetheless ridiculous.) Seven of these video games will likely be sports activities sims, and 4 will likely be free-to-play. Zelnick says that is the “strongest pipeline in our company’s history”.

The elephant within the room, in fact, is the GTA 6 release date. With Take-Two speaking so huge about its lineup for the following few years, it’s straightforward to speculate about Rockstar’s subsequent main challenge. None of the oldsters concerned have supplied any hints about what to anticipate from Rockstar subsequent, however loads of followers could have their fingers crossed for an ‘immersive core’ return to probably the most iconic open-world collection on the market.
