Take-Two Interactive revealed in its Q1 FY 2022 financial earnings presentation this week that it had three “new iterations of previously released titles” in development that would be released in the current fiscal year.
While the names of these titles weren’t specified, Take-Two clarified in one of its slides that these upcoming titles aren’t sequels but either “ports or remastered titles.”
The pipeline details have refueled rumors of Rockstar Games developing a new remastered trilogy that comprises three of its most popular Grand Theft Auto titles: Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Take-Two’s porting initiative for FY 2022 already includes Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V: Expanded and Enhanced, the latter of which will release for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles on November 11, 2021 with “technical improvements, visual upgrades, and performance enhancements.”
The news of Take-Two releasing three new ports or remasters has also woken up Red Dead Redemption fans, many of whom have been clamoring for a modernized version of the 2010 original. Red Dead Redemption was never released on PC and only made it to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.
New iterations of prior releases: This includes ports and remastered titles. Sequels would not fall into this category.
