"Grand Theft Auto 5" has taken years to development, and it is just scheduled to hit gaming systems this year, but Take-Two is talking about the chance of the series releasing a new installment every two years.
According to a report from GameSpot on Thursday, Karl Slatoff, who is the chief operating officer, talked about why the company has chosen not to create a new "Grand Theft Auto" installment every two years.
"Often times people ask us 'Why don't you come out with 'Grand Theft Auto' every two years?'
"To us, that doesn't make sense, because 'Grand Theft Auto,' every single time it comes out, is a brand new experience.
"You can't possibly do that in two years. And if we did that, our product would fatigue and the franchise would degrade from a value perspective," Slatoff said.
Slatoff continued by saying people would eventually become sick of the series if they released one every two years.
"We could easily have churned out a new version year after year without really progressing as a franchise, but if we did that, eventually the fans would lose interest," Slatoff said.
It would be interesting to find out if gamers would want a new "GTA" every couple years or not because their answers may not parallel the ones above.
