Take-Two has announced that a new title from one of 2K Games’s biggest series will release in the 2019 fiscal year (which runs from April 2018 to March 2019).
Strauss Zelnick, Take-Two CEO, delivered the news as part of a recent earnings report, but stopped short of announcing what that game might be: “Looking ahead, we expect fiscal 2019 to be a record year for Net Bookings and net cash provided by operating activities led by the upcoming launches of Rockstar Games’s Red Dead Redemption II and a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises.”
Given the bullish prediction, few possibilities regarding the game’s identity present themselves. Borderlands 3 is, perhaps, the most likely candidate, as a new entry in that series was confirmed back in 2015. However, 2K’s portfolio also includes Bioshock and Mafia, though new iterations in either of those series have not been hinted at to date.
Regardless, Red Dead Redemption II will be the biggest release for Take-Two when it releases in the northern hemisphere’s spring. That game recently received a debut story trailer, revealing some hints as to the plotline.
Persona 5 Royal Releases Early Next Year
Atlus USA has announced the western release date for Persona 5 Royal.
During the Atlus Art Show in Los Angeles, artist Shigenori Soejima discussed his work on both the Persona and Catherine series. Additionally, Atlus presented a short trailer with the release date of (the northern hemisphere’s) spring 2020 at the end. That means the game should launch at some point between March and May next year.
Persona 5 originally came out in western territories on April 4, 2017 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Persona 5 Royal will be an enhanced re-release with new content, including new scenarios, attacks, and music.
Persona 5 Royal will release on October 31 in Japan and Spring 2020 in the west for PlayStation 4.
