Whereas it is trying possible we’ll get to play Purple Lifeless Redemption 2 this 12 months, we’ll have to attend for some time longer for one more of Take-Two’s large franchises to get a sequel. We’re unsure what franchise that may be, nevertheless.
As a part of its quarterly monetary earnings report (wherein it posted sturdy earnings off the again of GTA On-line and NBA 2K19), the corporate laid out its expectations for the 2019 fiscal 12 months (which started in April of this 12 months and concludes in March of subsequent 12 months), which incorporates sturdy gross sales for Purple Lifeless Redemption 2, NBA 2K20, WWE 2K20, however doesn’t embrace a serious sequel in one in every of its key franchises.
The sequel, which had initially been deliberate to launch in the course of the 2019 fiscal 12 months, has been pushed again to the 2020 fiscal 12 months (April 2019-March 2020). The delay was made to offer the builders further time to work on the title. “We stay as excited as ever about this title, and count on it to reinforce our outcomes subsequent fiscal 12 months,” mentioned Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick.
Zelnick didn’t reveal which franchise he was referring to, but it surely’s potential it may very well be both Borderlands three (whose presence at E3 just isn’t trying possible), or the following entry within the BioShock sequence (which a top-secret studio is working on however nonetheless appears to be like to be a methods off). Both means, we’ll (most likely) know by March 2020.
