They also announced they have 93 games planned for release by 2025, including 15 ports of existing games. 47 of the 93 are from existing franchises, the other 46 are new IP.

That sure is alot of games over the next 5 years. Yearly sports stuff like WWE, PGA Tour, and NBA accounts for 15 of those. They must have alot of other games planned.

Those are SKUs that they are planning to release, thankfully.

In Sports games must account to 50 SKUs on them alone, so it's not THAT many games.

Wouldn't the number be too low if it was SKU's though? They have 3 sports licenses now which they will presumably be releasing yearly, NBA, WWE, and PGA Tour. With 3 SKU's per game, PC/Xbox Series X/PS5, we'd already be at 45 SKU's, and we can't forget that sports stuff will be cross-gen for the first few years, so that would mean 5 SKU's, 6 if any of this sports stuff ends up on Switch. They say that they only have 47 releasing from existing franchises, so sports stuff alone would take up all 47 if it was SKU's. We know they have non sports games releasing in the next 5 years, like the new Bioshock they are making.

Makes far more sense in my head than having 94 new or remastered titles. I mean, that's 2 games per month almost.It's far too much, even for Take Two and it's vault of money.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I'm kind of surprised at NBA 2K20 sales.

After selling so many copies of GTA V (seriously, those are trully impressive numbers), and the success of GTA Online, I wonder if their deal with Epic to give away the game for free is a way for the execs of Take Two to see if a free to play GTA game with heavy focus on the multiplayer would be a better business model.

I'm sure they'll take a closer look at all the new players and see how much they spend in GTA Online compared to those that bought the game.

Not that they're doing bad, tho, those are very good numbers.

what in the world? They would never ever make it F2P lol. The game has made like 6 billion in revenue off retail sales alone.

GTA:VI Free? FREE? G. T. A. FOR FREE? From the start?

No chance that leads to way, way, way more people playing it...

No way an online MTX model leads to an even bigger mountain of cash...

I could totally see it, though I don't necessarily think they'll do it. At least probably not full blown. You never know though.



Damn, that EGS exclusivity on Borderlands really hurt them a lot.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Wonder what that number is when you take into account Game Pass for OW? Myself and many others only played it via that.
