Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, in an interview with Gamasutra, has his doubts when it comes to the core games on the Wii U. However he does feel there is great opportunity when it comes to new hardware.
"We haven't announced anything," says Zelnick about releasing core games on the Wii U. "I'm skeptical." However he did add that "For a company like ours, it's a great opportunity. [New console launches] separate the winners from the losers -- and we fully expect to be one of the winners."
The start of a new generation he says is the best time to launch a new IP. "I don't want to minimize the challenge of creating titles for new technology or the economic challenges of doing that, but if you get it right, it's a terrific time to launch a new IP," he continued.
Zelnick did make one more key point. There is a risk when it comes to overexposure of a studios key franchises. He believes it is a bad idea to have a new release annually on non-sports titles. "I don't aim to annualize our non-sports titles because I think you run the risk of burning out the consumer -- even if its very high quality [product]," he says.
