Strauss Zelnick likes the question and says it's an "encouraging" thought.
During an earnings call on Monday, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick was asked if the company sees an opportunity to remaster prior GTA games to cash in on the huge appeal of the franchise. The question specifically pointed out that the GTA V audience might not have played earlier games in the series, so remastering older entries could be a way to appeal to them and sell more units.
In his trademark fashion, Zelnick said official announcements about future Rockstar products will come from the developer itself. But he did say he likes the question and he find it "encouraging," which is an intriguing response.
"It's a great and encouraging question. I'm kind of inclined to leave it more as a statement than a question," Zelnick said. "And any updates on our release schedule will come from Rockstar Games."
