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.
“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
