With much of Hollywood out of action and SAG-AFTRA video game actors negotiating with publishers over a new union contract, the legitimate possibility of a voice actor strike continues to loom. But it’s not something that’s keeping Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick awake at night, as he confirmed during an earnings call that the upcoming GTA 6 is “completely protected” from any potential issues.
Asked during an earnings call whether the open world sequel, which is scheduled to be officially revealed in December, could be delayed due to a strike, the executive first suggested that he believes a resolution will be found. “Negotiations are expected to resume next week,” he said. “We're optimistic. We value excellent labour relations, and we're looking forward to reaching an agreement that serves everyone well.”
