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

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

The publisher boss would not be drawn on 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 the individual labels.

But when asked about launching GTA V on other machines, he did tell 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.

"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."
