Take-Two has announced that a new title from one of 2K Games’s biggest series will release in the 2019 fiscal year (which runs from April 2018 to March 2019).
Strauss Zelnick, Take-Two CEO, delivered the news as part of a recent earnings report, but stopped short of announcing what that game might be: “Looking ahead, we expect fiscal 2019 to be a record year for Net Bookings and net cash provided by operating activities led by the upcoming launches of Rockstar Games’s Red Dead Redemption II and a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises.”
Given the bullish prediction, few possibilities regarding the game’s identity present themselves. Borderlands 3 is, perhaps, the most likely candidate, as a new entry in that series was confirmed back in 2015. However, 2K’s portfolio also includes Bioshock and Mafia, though new iterations in either of those series have not been hinted at to date.
Regardless, Red Dead Redemption II will be the biggest release for Take-Two when it releases in the northern hemisphere’s spring. That game recently received a debut story trailer, revealing some hints as to the plotline.
