Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick has revealed that Grand Theft Auto 5 developer Rockstar Games will continue to invest in both single-player and multiplayer games going forward, despite the massive success of GTA Online.
Here’s what Zelnick had to say during Take-Two’s latest earnings call:
The folks at Rockstar Games intended to create a powerful single-player experience and story-driven experience. And Rockstar has always been known for great stories and great single-player experiences and then developed in addition, a massive multiplayer opportunity over the past years.
Zelnick also addressed the notion that single-player gamers are slowly going the way of the Dodo, stating “there was an argument just a couple of years ago, not around here, not in this shop, but in some of our competitors’ offices, that single-player is dead, that it’s all about multiplayer. We didn’t believe that I said specifically and publicly that we didn’t believe that, our labels don’t believe that.”
Rockstar Games is heavily rumord to be working on Grand Theft Auto 6, although an official confirmation has yet to be announced.
