‘We’ll launch GTA V on other platforms if that’s where the consumers are’

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said, Grand Theft Auto V could come to other platforms, if that’s where the gamers are.

Strauss Zelnick didn’t state whether the game will arrive on PC and next-gen consoles, or not, which isn’t surprising as the firm leaves the marketing and announcement decisions down to other labels.

But when Strauss Zelnick was questioned about launching GTA V on other machines, he told MCV that the firm is in the business of releasing its games on the devices that its fans own – whether that’s PC, Xbox One, PS4, tablets or wherever these gamers may end up in the future. It depends on the public.


“If that is where consumers are, absolutely [we’ll release our game on that],” he said.

“But we wouldn’t drive them there, we would just be there if they are there. That is why we have a companion app for our basketball title, NBA 2K Everywhere. It is wherever consumers want to be.

“We are not in the hardware business, we don’t have any dog in that hut, we just want to be where the consumer is.”

In my opinion, no matter which consoles GTA V is on. People will buy it. Even if they already have it and have played it for countless hours. This game is one of the greatest games of our time. It was named ‘Game of The Year’ by countless websites and has won awards as well.
