Take-Two is one of many publishers to get interested in Nintendo Switch as a console. After releasing WWE 2K18, NBA 2K18 and L.A Noire on the Switch, Take-Two is now revealing that they’re impressed with Nintendo’s system and intend to treat it as a latest-gen console for their releases as it should be.
In their latest financial call, Take-Two President Karl Slatoff shared the company’s opinion regarding the Nintendo Switch, when asked whether or not Grand Theft Auto V will get released on the console. He said:
“In terms of bringing other titles to Switch, obviously we’ve done a few titles already. We’ve done NBA, WWE, L.A. Noire. We look at this like any other platform opportunity to the extent that we look at our development costs, is the game right for the platform, what does the audience look like, what’s the install base? So when we do believe that there’s an opportunity to do something on Switch, then you’ll hear from the labels. We are impressed with the growth, we’re impressed with the units that have been sold into the market so far, so we’re very sanguine at this point, but we’ve nothing more to announce specifically at this point.”
As it seems, Take-Two intends to release more games on Nintendo Switch in the future if there’s a title that fits it. There’s no news though if the rumors about Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption will eventually hit the console. However, fans think that the possibility of seeing GTA V on the Switch is pretty slim.
In related news, the controversy-riddled trademark for Manhunt has been renewed by Take-Two Interactive, perhaps suggesting something in the works behind the scenes. Take-Two Interactive might be thinking of bringing out a third installment or maybe the renewal of the trademark was simply to protect its intellectual properties.
