Video game publisher Take-Two Interactive posted their latest earnings report on Tuesday, which covered the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter ending March 31st. In addition to an impressive revenue climb of 10% to $839.4 million, Take-Two also laid out an extensive outline of upcoming titles to be published over the course of the next three years.
The company plans to unveil a staggering 62 games, which they compartmentalized into five different categories: Immersive Core, Independent, Mobile, Mid Core and New Iterations Of Previously Released Titles. There will be four “Immersive Core” games released in 2022 alone, two of which are perennial sports titles NBA 2K22 and WWE 2K22, as well as an offering from Civilization and XCOM developer Firaxis and Borderlands developer Gearbox Software, the latter of which is heavily rumored to be a spinoff to the popular shooter-looter game.
Although the prospect of new titles from Firaxis and Gearbox is certainly intriguing, Take-Two has yet to announce any of the games in an official capacity besides Olli Olli World, which would be identified under the company’s “Independent” category and is slated for release in 2022. In addition to the new titles from Firaxis and Gearbox, Take-Two has plans to release 20 free-to-play mobile games and nine “new iterations of previously released titles” (which includes the next-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V) by the year 2024.
Speaking of Grand Theft Auto, the highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6, which is rumored to be in development, could certainly fall under the “Immersive Core Releases” category, although it’s still too early to make a definitive judgement at this point.
