Something to look forward to: Take-Two Interactive, Grand Theft Auto’s best known publisher, has announced that sequels are in the works for some of its biggest games.
In its earnings call for the second quarter of the financial year, the company said it had the “most successful development pipeline in its history, including sequels from our largest franchises as well as exciting new IP.”
While one of these sequels might be GTA VI, a new BioShock game is more likely to be a name. Kotaku reported early last year that work had begun on another entry in the series, while BioShock 3, which could be a live service game, is rumored to have a 2 K job listing for an End Game Design Lead.
Since the 2014 BioShock Infinite expansion Burial at Sea, we haven’t seen a new BioShock release, so fans are clamoring for a return to the fantastic world of the franchise.
Mafia 4 could be another sequel. It’s been three years since Mafia 3’s launch, which arrived with some very average-to-poor reviews after a lot of pre-release hype. Rumors say that the latest addition will be set in Las Vegas in the 1970s, and developer Hanger 13 will certainly try to correct the previous game’s mediocre.
As for GTA VI, we’ve learned that Rockstar Games has started working on the game very early, but it’s unlikely to be released for a while, particularly with the online mode of GTA V Multiplayer and Red Dead Redemption 2 keeping the company busy.
Expect some of the unannounced games from Take-Two to also appear on Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles, which arrive late next year.
Take-Two’s report also revealed that GTA V has sold more than 115 million copies now, while Borderlands 3 has sales of 7 million.
