More Take-Two VR Games May Be Coming

Take-Two Interactive Strauss Zelnick has stated that more Take-Two VR games may be on the way in the future, noting that he's sure "we'll have more VR titles in the future as well."

A few years back, Rockstar Games worked with Video Games Deluxe to release L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files. That partnership then moved forward with a mysterious new project that was later revealed to be a VR version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the Meta Quest 2. Combine that with Rockstar's recent reveal of a remaster trilogy for the 3D era GTA games and it's clear that things have been pretty great for Rockstar Games fans as of late.

There are sure to be more games coming from Rockstar in the future. What's much more surprising, however, is that some of the company's upcoming projects have a good chance of being VR games.

What Will Future Take-Two VR Games Look Like?

As UploadVR reports (via Reddit), Take-Two Interactive's CEO Strauss Zelnick appears to have warmed to virtual reality. His previous commentary indicated that he was skeptical of the tech, but the experience with L.A. Noire and GTA: San Andreas likely contributed to a change of heart.

"We’ve always said that we want to be where the consumer is," Zelnick said in response to a question during an investor call regarding his thoughts on VR. "And when VR first emerged as a potential technology, while I expressed some skepticism about it becoming a very broad-based consumer application, I also thought it was really exciting technically and said that we would participate."

"Rockstar has already brought L.A. Noire to VR. NBA 2K has come to VR," he added. "I’m sure we’ll have more VR titles in the future as well."

The big question, of course, is what those future Take-Two VR games would be. VR ports of GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 would be natural choices due to their popularity and integrated support of first-person mode, but there's always the possibility that Rockstar Games makes something solely for VR. Perhaps we could finally get a Rockstar Table Tennis remaster.

However it turns out, it sounds like Rockstar Games is going to lean into VR in the coming years. While we can speculate on what that might look like, Rockstar is notoriously good for playing its cards close to the chest; odds are, we probably won't learn anything about these upcoming projects until it's ready to reveal them to the public.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
