Rockstar May Reveal GTA 6 and Read Dead Redemption 2 at E3 2016
Recently, Take-Two Interactive teased that Rockstar is working on some exciting new projects. These could be the Grand Theft Auto 6 and the Red Dead Redemption 2.
We already know that Rockstar isn’t gonna release Red Dead Redemption 2 until after the first quarter of 2017. But it is expected that the game could reveal at E3 2016, maybe along with GTA 6 too.
“Looking ahead, we expect to grow Non-GAAP revenues and earnings in fiscal 2018, based on our robust development plan that extends well beyond the current fiscal year. Rockstar Games is of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.”
– Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive said during a press release.
The CEO further hinted that the company has major AAA titles in development which would boost earnings for FY2018. Well, the possible AAA titles are Red Dead Redemption and GTA 6 – They’re the games that could boost their earnings significantly.
During the press, an analyst said during a Q&A session:
“You mentioned you expect growth on revenue and earnings for FY18, so what gives you the confidence to say that now?”
“It’s what we’re working on in our development studios.”
Take-Two President, Karl Slatoff further added:
“We have very good visibility into our pipeline, and based on what we see, it gives us high confidence for FY18 growth.”
According to some recent leaks, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be called “Legends of the Old West” and it’ll be set in a prequel timeline. The open-world map of the game will be huge, bigger than any Red Dead Redemption game.
Talking about Grand Theft Auto 6, not much information about it was revealed. But we could see it teased or maybe revealed alongside Red Dead Redemption 2 because Zelnick said “Projects” not “Project”, so we can say that we can see some major titles from Rockstar this year.
“We’ve got about 45 years worth of ideas we want to do. We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we’ve got some ideas.”
– Leslie Benzies, Ex-Rockstar President.
So yeah guys, according to Zelnick’s statements, we can conclude that Rockstar is working on something big, which is most probably Red Dead Redemption 2. GTA 6 can also be revealed or teased alongside RDR 2 to build up some hype. Rockstar has already confirmed that GTA 6 is indeed coming, so they could do something insane at this year’s E3 conference.
What Rockstar will do at this year’s E3? Time will tell, so just sit back and wait.
