This was said by COO of Take-Two Interactive Karl Slatoff at the Wedbush Transformational Technologies Conference.
"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."
This goes along with Rockstar North’s comments made in Nov., by Leslie Benzies: “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.”
The latest entry in the series, “Grand Theft Auto V,” is due in stores on Sept. 17 across the world. It will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
