Take-Two – the parent company behind 2K, Rockstar, and Private Division – has released its latest financial earnings report, and with it an update to the list of titles the company has in production. In fiscal year 2022, which ends on March 31, 2021, Take-Two will launch four new “immersive core” games, and half of them will be from new franchises.
“In fiscal 2022, we plan to deliver an exciting array of offerings, including four immersive core releases, of which two will be from new franchises,” CEO Strauss Zelnick says in a press release. Take-Two typically includes sports titles in its ‘immersive core’ label, so it’s likely the two existing franchises are WWE 2K and NBA 2K.
That leaves us wondering what the new franchises launched this year will be, and there’s not much of a clue just yet. While “new franchise” suggests new IP, it’s possible that these will be licensed games, which would still be a new franchise to 2K. The one thing we know for sure is that none of these four ‘immersive core’ games will be free-to-play.
