Take-Two, the organisation in charge of labels like Rockstar and 2K Games, has already announced a couple of next-gen conversions: Grand Theft Auto 5 and Kerbal Space Program being the duo. However, as part of an investor relations report, it’s quietly confirmed that it has three more “new iterations of previously released titles” set to deploy by 31st March, 2022.
Due to the sheer size and breadth of Take-Two’s publishing portfolio, it’s hard to predict exactly what these could be. There have been recurring rumours regarding the PS2 trilogy of Grand Theft Auto games, but these are technically already playable on PS5, so maybe it’s time to bring Niko Bellic and GTA 4 to contemporary consoles?
Rockstar also could be looking to port Red Dead Redemption 2 to next-gen systems, although it seems unlikely so close to its high-profile GTA 5 adaptation. The reality is that the trio will probably pertain to 2K Games franchises, with Mafia: Definitive Edition, Civilization VI, and maybe even BioShock: The Collection getting the re-release treatment.
Interestingly, the document also reveals that Take-Two has one more unannounced “immersive core” title due out by the end of its current fiscal year, which could very well be the Marvel-themed XCOM strategy game that seemingly leaked prior to E3 2021. Hopefully, if it’s real, we’ll learn more about that soon.
