November 17, 2006 - It's no surprise that Take-Two is planning to support the PS3. However, few expected this morning's announcement that 20 PlayStation 3 games were in development. The majority of these games remain secret, but several are already known.
Highlighting the list is Grand Theft Auto IV, which ships on October 16, 2007. Other high-profile games include L.A. Noire and The Darkness. The newly released NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7 were part of Take-Two's 20-count. 2K games has at least eleven more games in the hopper, including Major League Baseball 2K7, The Bigs, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, NBA 2K8 and NHL 2K8.
"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."
Take-Two did not give a time frame for the release of all 20 titles, but at least half are expected in 2007.
