Since it has been almost three years since the initial launch of GTA V, the timing seems right for Rockstar Games to announce its next project, and the evidence points to it being none other than Red Dead Redemption 2.
Recent rumors regarding the latest Grand Theft Auto developments say that Rockstar - the company responsible for the franchise - has already begun working on the sixth installment and that the setting in this next game won't be in the US.
The open-world Western-themed game "Red Redemption" is reportedly getting a sequel due for release in 2017 according to speculations by fans and observers following Take 2 Interactive's statement that Rockstar Games is "hard at work" on a new project.
There are also indications that after Rockstar Games announces the game during E3 2016, the release date will be pegged as sometime in 2017.
Commenting on the release, Staruss Zelnick, CEO of Take Two, disclosed that the company is looking ahead to grow substantial Non-GAAP revenues and earnings in fiscal 2018.
"It's what we're working on in our development studios", said CEO Strauss Zelnick. The only one, which has arrived so far, came in the form of a leaked map for the game and it was reported earlier this year.
"Our results were driven by the continued extraordinary performance of Grand Theft Auto V, ongoing momentum in our National Basketball Association 2K and WWE 2K series, the successful launch of XCOM 2, and our highest-ever revenue from recurrent consumer spending". Additionally, Zelnick said that Take-Two has announced its complete slate for the current fiscal year and no Rockstar title is apparently on it.
