Take-Two Delays 'Highly-Anticipated' Sequel To Fiscal Year 2020

Whereas it is trying seemingly we’ll get to play Purple Lifeless Redemption 2 this yr, we’ll have to attend for some time longer for an additional of Take-Two’s huge franchises to get a sequel. We’re unsure what franchise that could be, nevertheless.

As a part of its quarterly monetary earnings report (by which it posted robust earnings off the again of GTA On-line and NBA 2K19), the corporate laid out its expectations for the 2019 fiscal yr (which started in April of this yr and concludes in March of subsequent yr), which incorporates robust gross sales for Purple Lifeless Redemption 2, NBA 2K20, WWE 2K20, however doesn’t embrace a serious sequel in certainly one of its key franchises.

The sequel, which had initially been deliberate to launch through the 2019 fiscal yr, has been pushed again to the 2020 fiscal yr (April 2019-March 2020). The delay was made to present the builders further time to work on the title. “We stay as excited as ever about this title, and anticipate it to reinforce our outcomes subsequent fiscal yr,” stated Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick.

Zelnick didn’t reveal which franchise he was referring to, however it’s potential it may very well be both Borderlands three (whose presence at E3 isn’t trying seemingly), or the subsequent 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.

Our Take
I am betting that is Borderlands three, however possibly Take-Two is overestimating the thrill round a possible Duke Nukem sequel?
