During the scheduled financial meeting, Take-Two president Karl Slatoff revealed that 2K would be announcing another franchise that will launch this fiscal year:

“Later this month, 2K will unveil details of another exciting new franchise planned for launch during this fiscal year,”

So, when and where will this new franchise be announced? Well, it could happen at this year’s Gamescom 2021, which is set to be an all-digital event. Hosted by Geoff Keighley, the event kicks off on the 25th of August with its Opening Night Live Show, followed by the main event on the 26th and 27th.

Of course, it’s not all good news for Take-Two, 2K’s parent company. The publisher also disclosed that it had delayed two of its “immersive core” titles until later than originally planned during the same financial meeting. Back in May, the publishing powerhouse said it was planning to release 21 games during the current financial year, including two “proven” franchises and two brand new experiences [via VGC].

Here’s hoping we hear about 2K’s brand new franchises soon. While the company’s most recent announcement is pretty exciting, Gearbox Software is apparently also working on a brand new game and the next instalment of the Borderlands franchise, which is apparently going to be the “big one”.
