Company CEO Strauss Zelnick discussed the future of both beloved game series during the Cowen and Company Analyst conference (via GameSpot) saying:
I pretty much know the ones that I can assure you are permanent. It's obvious that GTA is a permanent franchise as long as we keep delivering this incredible quality; it seems quite obvious that Red Dead is a permanent franchise, again with the same caveat, or Borderlands, for example, and NBA and others.
We haven't given any colour on how you should think about [BioShock] yet except we do believe it's beloved; we think it's important [and] certainly something that we're focused on; something 2K Marin will be responsible for shepherding going forward. I think there's a lot of upside in that franchise. It hasn't necessarily been realised yet.
Are you excited at the prospect of more Red Dead and BioShock? Here's to hoping that Rockstar is already hard at work on another open-world game set in the west, and that 2K Marin is up to the task of following up last year's mind-bending hit, BioShock Infinite.
