It’s either that, or Bioshock.
While this year is going to be a quieter year for Take 2, after the delay of Red Dead Redemption 2 into next year, it sounds like 2018 is promising to be a pretty big and eventful one for them. Not only is Red Dead Redemption 2 going to be out then, but it sounds like Take 2 is teasing another ‘huge title’ for next year, too.
“Obviously fiscal 2019 will look much better with the launch of Red Dead 2 and a huge new title from 2K, as well as the 2K Sports titles, catalogue, recurrent consumer spending, NBA2K Online in China, Social Point and the like,” Take 2 Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick told GamesIndustry during an interview.
The question is, what Take 2 game qualifies as being ‘huge’? The Rockstar properties, obviously- but Red Dead is already accounted for in that statement, and it is all but impossible that Rockstar also launches a brand new GTA game next year. Their next biggest properties are Bioshock and Borderlands– and with the former franchise being on somewhat of a hiatus, doesn’t it now sound likely that Borderlands 3 is what is being teased for a release next year? Especially since we already know that the game is under development currently?
