The firm also confirmed its upcoming release slate, which notes that WWE 2K15 will likely land sometime during the firm’s fiscal 2015, which starts on March 31, 2015. Visual Concepts is helping out with development.

The firm also has an unannounced current-generation game from Rockstar is planned for release by the end of March 2015, current-gen meaning PS4 and Xbox One.

No hint as to what it would be, but we’re hoping for a new Red Dead game, personally. Yee-haw!

    Rockstar’s current gen game could be AGENT or it could be a new Red Dead Game, or it could be GTA 5 – Remastered Edition. Or the unexpected Manhunt or Bully.

    As for Take Two they’re are doing all right with their games strategy.

    my 2 cents are going towards gta v for those consoles or a new midnight club, which could turn out nice. I really would like a open world arcade racer whit customization options like nfs underground 2.

    I’m leaning towards new Red Dead game, I think they want to move current gen (PS4/Xbone/PC) GTAV this year instead of 2015.

    They are the best publisher.

    I think Red dead would be great but if they can resurrect Agent that would be incredible.

    Just think how awesome Manhunt could be on the new consoles. You know, we may be able to decapitate someone and fuck their wound or take someone’s intestines out and throw it on another’s head to distract them, all with detailed graphics and animations. Just imagine all the possibilities.

    Impressive numbers! My money’s also on a new Red Dead in 2015.

    Hey Steph! “WWE 2K15 will likely land sometime during the firm’s fiscal 2015, which starts on March 31, 2015.”… It ends on March 31, 2015. We are already in fiscal 2015! ;)

    Red Dead, Bully, Manhunt, Agent… Any of these would go down pretty well. I notice nobody has asked for a new Max Payne though, ha ha!

    Call it new-gen then.
    I really really really hope it’s Midnight Club, but I know it’s not.
