It might be best known for triple-A franchises such as Grand Theft Auto, BioShock and – in recent times – Borderlands, but Take-Two CEO Ben Feder has singled out casual franchise Carnival Games for special praise.
Carnival Games is our Energizer Bunny – it just keeps going and going,” Feder told MCV in an exclusive interview.
It recently passed 6m units sold worldwide. Carnival Games is also the third best-selling third-party title on the Wii behind Guitar Hero and Mario & Sonic.”
Nonetheless, Feder remained cagey when asked about what must surely be the inevitable follow-up.
We haven’t announced any new offerings for Carnival. However, it’s certainly the cornerstone of our casual business. We’ve been fairly active in the casual space, including launching titles for Xbox Live Arcade and iPhone. This year we’ll release Sid Meier’s Civilization Network – a social network game.”
