Take-Two Interactive has assured investors that quality won’t be an issue for future Grand Theft Auto games. Following the disastrous launch of GTA: The Trilogy - Definitive Edition, the publisher sought to ease fears during a third-quarter earnings call, stating it's “exceedingly confident” about future GTA releases.
Covered by VGC, CEO Strauss Zelnick acknowledged that GTA: The Trilogy launched with numerous issues. Stating the game has since been patched with more updates to come, Zelnick promised that future GTA games would be focused on quality, calling this "an isolated case."
Take-Two is “Exceedingly Confident” in the Quality of Future GTA Games
Here is the full quote from Zelnick:
Very occasionally we fall short, and I think the trilogy was an example of that, and the title was launched with some issues. We’ve addressed many of them, there are more fixes to come. Going forward, we remain highly focused on quality, and we are exceedingly confident in all of our upcoming releases.
We’ve had precious few quality lapses at this company, so any time that we’ve fallen short from a quality point of view, it has been an isolated case and we aim to keep it that way.
With GTA 6 being officially confirmed and rumours of Bully 2 still being in development, a lot of eyes are on Take-Two and Rockstar Games. It's a fair assumption that they wouldn’t want to make the same mistake twice, and we'll keep you updated if anything changes.
