TAKE-TWO WON’T RULE OUT GTA HD COLLECTION

Following last weeks news and subsequent re-release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Rockstar‘s parent company Take-Two has said that it has no plans to release a HD Collection of it’s previous GTA games, however they haven’t ruled anything out.

During the Take-Two earnings call the subject came up after Strauss Zelnick announced that the GTA V had sold 34 million copies of the game:

“In any given year we and our key competitors launch new intellectual properties and new iterations of older properties. And occasionally, when we see a platform shift, we will take an old property and create an iteration of that in a very similar form for next-gen,”

Zelnick then went on to say:

“And we wouldn’t rule anything out. That would be driven by the market opportunity that we perceive, and the potential for delivering a quality release. And that would be very much something that also would be driven by the passion of our labels.”(Label’s under the Take-Two umbrella are Rockstar and 2K)

Another subject came up during the earnings call, which was the reason as to why the PC version of GTA V is being released just over three months after the PS4 and Xbox One versions:

“When we move a title, it’s almost always the same answer, which is giving a title a bit more development time to make sure that it can be everything that it ought to be. And while we would prefer never to change a release date, it’s proven to be a good move for us in general. We have the highest Metacritic ratings in the business, and that correlates with revenue and ultimately, of course, profitability.”

GTA V will be available on 18th November on Playstation 4 and Xbox One, and 27th January 2015 on PC
