Take-Two Interactive’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, has shared his thoughts on the possibility of mid-generation console upgrades for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Zelnick believes it’s quite likely that updated consoles will be released, adding that the previous generation’s upgraded consoles did not have a significant impact on the gaming industry’s business. He also affirmed that his company, Take-Two, will continue to support last-gen hardware, as well as the new rumored Nintendo console expected to launch next year.
It’s been over two years since the current generation of consoles was released in November 2020. In comparison, the Xbox One X mid-generation refresh was released four years after the console’s initial launch, while the PS4 Pro was introduced three years following the release of the PS4. These consoles focused on providing native 4K gaming experiences and also introduced performance and quality modes that prioritized either frame-rates or resolutions.
While current-gen consoles have begun to offer more limited graphical options for new video games, titles such as Gotham Knights must be played at 4K and 30fps on console. The 60fps mode of Redfall will only arrive in a future update. According to Digital Foundry analysis, returning to 30fps games is inevitable in the current console generation. It’s worth noting that Sony recently filed a patent application for a new disc drive, which has fueled rumors that a PS5 with a removable disc drive is in the works.
Take-Two expects to have a very profitable fiscal year in 2025, with the much-awaited launch of GTA 6 next year. This game’s launch is predicted to help the company make an astronomical amount of cash.
In conclusion, mid-generation refreshes for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S are highly likely to be released according to Take-Two’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick. Additionally, it’s anticipated that the limited graphical options available for current-gen video games will become more common, and the PS5 with a removable disc drive is rumored to be in development after Sony’s recent patent application filing. Lastly, Take-Two’s highly anticipated release of GTA 6 next year is expected to bring in a lot of revenue in 2025.
