Take-Two Prepares 20 PS3 Titles
We've known for quite some time that Take-Two Interactive is planning on supporting the PS3, but did we really expect the announcement that 20 games were in the making?
Obviously, the massively anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV tops the list, but some other potentially top-notch titles include L.A. Noire and The Darkness. The freshly released NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7 were part of those 20, and 2K Sports has at least 11 more games in development: Major League Baseball 2K7, The Bigs, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, NBA 2K8 and NHL 2K8, etc.
"We applaud Sony for helping raise the bar in the next generation of gaming," said Paul Eibeler, Take-Two's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As the hardware transitions to the next generation, Take-Two is working hard to position itself to emerge as a leading next generation publisher, with our focus on delivering quality titles and harnessing technologies like Sony's cell processors and Blu-Ray storage capacity, as well as its proprietary SixAxis wireless controller. We're not asking gamers to wait until we can evolve into the technologies. From day-one, our development team will astonish gamers with the fullest, deepest and most entertaining titles on the market."
The company did not announce release dates for any of the twenty titles (except for the two that are already out, obviously), but we do expect to see at least half of them in 2007.
