The lights are on
During a financial call with reporters and investors, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick talked about the company's next-gen plan, which currently does not include a next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V.
According to Gamasutra, Zelnick said that the company has an "extensive pipeline of unannounced titles."He also said that the company doesn't feel that the budgets for its games will skyrocket in the next generation of consoles, and that all its upcoming projects will meet four requirements: "strong owned intellectual property, strong creative teams in-house, strong technology, and a strong balance sheet."When asked about possible dual launch Grand Theft Auto V for next-gen consoles and current consoles in September, he replied, "There is not one gamer who is going to sit out of GTA V hoping that something that is going to come along down the road that's better. It's going to blow everyone away, and it's going to be in the market in September."

It would have been nice to have it on the new consoles
Take-Two awesomeness September it is and Great Article.!
Great! Good to know that a new console isn't necessary for the full GTA V experience.
I'm still waiting for news on Agent, so come on Rockstar.
Debunk ALL the rumours!
I'm getting it for Xbox 360. If it does launch with the 720 or the PS4, I will get it for one of those also.
Not a hard decision.
I'd prefer it for this console generation, so that's good to hear.
Makes sense . More likely to have a next-gen IP a la Red Dead or LA Noire. Either way, I'm sure their first next gen project will turn heads.
He's right. Even if it were announced for a release 6 months down the line or a year later on the next gen systems, I wouldn't wait. I doubt I will brave a midnight release, but I will be there when the store opens on Sept 17.
Hahaha! Well done!!
He also said that the company doesn't feel that the budgets for its games will skyrocket in the next generation of consoles, 887
Nothing unexpected, the install base for current consoles is huge and a next-gen port seems like a big undertaking for that would yield far smaller profits than current gen.
All I want is another 80's Vice city :(
