BULLETCAST, May 25 – What you need to know now
It’s a great morning. Especially if your last name is Houser. Here are your headlines. Good morning, campers.
- Take Two posted a full-year profit for its fiscal year ending March 31, bringing in a 49 percent net revenue uptake of $1.14 billion. Q4 revenue was down, though, despite strong contributions from NBA, MLB, GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.
- In addition, T2 also announced last night it had agreed new “long-term employment agreements” with Rockstar bosses Dan Houser, Sam Houser and Leslie Benzies. Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed that the publisher’s PS3 exclusive, Agent, was still in development, but nothing more was said on the title.
- Sony’s confirmed that the PlayStation Store will not relaunch today despite maintenance on PSN last night, as well as welcome back subscriptions for PS Plus for all PSN users activating.
- Ubisoft’s announced Ghost Recon Online, an FTP third-person shooter for the series’ tenth anniversary. It launches this summer.
- Duke Nukem Forever’s gone Gold. Nope, not shitting you. It’ll now actually release on June 10 internationally and June 14 in the US. Pigs are flying above us as we speak.
- Hideo Kojima has hinted at the possible cancellation of a project inside Kojima Productions. Protip: it’s definitely not Rising or MGS 3DS.
- CD Projekt’s to show a new project at E3. There’s confusion over what it actually is, but Witcher II producer Tomasz Gop has said that the console lot “might be interested in it.”
- Square’s to announce a new MMO by March 31, 2012, it said in its recent financials.
And that’s your bacon and sausage for this morning. Pat’s off to the UK this morning, so no audio for the rest of the week. Now, go kick Wednesday’s balls in. Hard.
