Rockstar parent company Take-Two offered a non-committal response when asked about the potential for remastering older Grand Theft Auto games on Monday.
During the company’s third quarter earnings call, Take-Two revealed that Grand Theft Auto V has reached another major sales milestone.
“Grand Theft Auto V remains one of the most iconic titles ever released and it continues to exceed our expectations, having sold in over 140 million units,” Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said.
During the Q&A session of the call, an analyst suggested it was likely that a significant portion of GTA V players might never have played earlier games in the series. Given the huge appetite for GTA content, he asked for Take-Two’s perspective on potential Grand Theft Auto remasters.
“It’s a great and encouraging question,” Zelnick responded. “I’m kind of inclined to leave it more as a statement than a question and any update on our release schedule will come from Rockstar Games.”
Rockstar is set to bring an “expanded and enhanced” version of GTA V to next-gen consoles in the second half of 2021, including a standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online which will be free for PS5 owners for the first three months.
