Take Two has made a financially successful quarter, but the company has already devoted itself to the coming financial year in its current annual report. Since games like “Red Dead Redemption 2” and a still unannounced project will come to the market, it will be a record year for Take Two.

To which title is the second game, Take-Two did not want to betray, however, the assumption is quite close that “Borderlands 3” is meant.
The title has been confirmed in the course of the year, but the formal announcement is still missing with first information and games. The CEO Strauss Zelnick did not want to confirm today’s assumption, but he emphasized that “Borderlands” is basically considered a 2K brand.
