Rockstar Games strongly believes in single playerassured Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick during the recent financial meeting with investors during which impressive sales figures for the company also emerged.
On the other hand, it is not surprising trust of Rockstar Games in the single player genre, given the numbers it continues to grind: we remember that GTA 5 is at more than 160 million copies, Red Dead Redemption 2 at 43 million, to which must also be added a title that seemed subdued like GTA Trilogy, however, managed to reach 10 million copies despite the problems within a few months.
In light of these findings, it is clear that Rockstar Games has plans to continue investing on single player games as driving forces, although they have also been specializing for some time in multiplayer live services such as Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online, which for some time now represent important pillars for Take Two’s economy .
In any case, the gaming experiences are always initially driven by the single player, in the experience of the team in question: “There was a time when some of our competitors had taken a position where they gave the single player for dead by now. “, said Zelnick,” We have never shared that position, we have always known that there is a place for single players and I believe that this role will always remain in the future. “
“There are certain games that are designed to be multiplayer experience, but Rockstar is known for its ability to to tell and also for its fantastic open worlds“.
