On a conference, the boss of the big publisher Take-Two explains why it can be good with the release of continuations of great title to wait a little longer. As an example of such a row of play, he calls GTA among other things. There, the players are waiting for GPA 6. But Selznick says when you rest a row, the release will feel like a big event later.
Who speaks there? The boss of the publisher Take-Two, Harry Strauss Selznick (64), talked to the conference Jeffries Virtual Global Interactive Entertainment Conference.
Large gaming hen must rest, this increases demand
This is his thesis: Strauss Selznick said, sometimes it was good to wait for a great game series with the release of a new title. It could be advantageous to deliberately delay the release to let the series rest so that the fans are delighted even more.
This is mainly for the most valuable rows, of which there are only a few.
According to his view, such important ranks are about:
GTA — he calls first Red Dead Redemption NBA Borderlands Bios chock Civilization
Selznick says, with these titles one must also be ready to let the rows rest something so that the impression arises: Wow, that s rare.
I ve always said that if you drive non-sports title every year, you run danger that you burn the line, even if you are good.

GTA like the James Bond series
How does he justify that? Selznick says, if you do something, then it must be incredibly good. You leave track also with intention, so that the demand for the title rises, and it becomes a special event.
Selznick uses as a comparison the James Bond series. He says when he sees a bond movie, then he knows that no further bond film comes out in one or two months. He will watch every bond movie, but if one is bad, he sees that almost as a personal insult because he finds the turn so well.
That s exactly how it is at Rock star.
GTA online creates the same situation for GTA like War zone for Call of Duty
That s behind it: It looks a bit absurd because the release of GTA 5 is already 8 years ago: The title would actually be rested. But GTA 5 is in a special situation.
Selznick does not call the series on behalf, but there is a big series that bakes non-sports title annually and is actually Call of Duty.
Since Call of Duty: War zone now a call-of-duty offshoot is permanently playable and expanded, the interest in the new title Call of Duty: Vanguard is significantly lower than on earlier parts of the series.
Here ACTIVISION Blizzard actually runs the risk of burning out what Selznick announces as a danger to annually appearing titles. Also, Ubisoft said that titles such as The Division 2 or Ghost Recon Wild lands came to their predecessors too early. This contributed to the fact that the succession titles were commercially flopped.
Rock star is with GTA Online in a similar situation like ACTIVISION Blizzard with Call of Duty: In itself, the series GTA rests for 8 years, and it would not be an issue. But because GTA online is so popular, Strauss Selznick could see that as a problem.
Apparently, GTA 6 simply does not hurry up with Take-Two, which seems absurd. The release of GTA 5 is already 8 years ago and the demand for a new GTA is immensely high. But you can not see that with Take-Two as a problem — also because GTA online even years after releasing a lot of money plays:
GTA 5 Online now had his strongest month for 2 years — why?
