Next-generation gaming is just on the horizon and gamers will expect significant leaps in technology and visuals. That’s according to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick who says this doesn’t mean higher costs for developers.
CVG reports that, when asked during an earnings briefing about the cost of next-gen games, Zelnick responded, “We don’t have a ramp up of operating expenses for next generation.”
There’s a huge expectation for significant technological progress expected for Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox 720 (so-called) – despite this, Zelnick believes it might be cheaper to develop next-gen games.
“We believe that it may somewhat be easier to make titles for next-gen depending on how the technology comes together,” he says.
We’re expecting to hear about the PlayStation 4 or the next Xbox sometime next year, and hoping to see the release of at least one of them by the end of 2014.
