Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, has stated in no uncertain terms that it will not release games like GTA 6 on PS Plus or Game Pass from the start. At least not on the first day of the earnings call.
The launch of GTA 6 on PS Plus or Game Pass would make no financial sense.
Zelnick dismissed the notion and said that Game Pass is too small a business for Take-Two to market games on it. However, the company does not mind supporting PS Plus and Game Pass by releasing other catalog titles on them.
Zelnick said (transcribed by SeekingAlpa) that his frontline titles are not available on a day or date. "We're delighted to be in business with subscription services for our catalog titles at the appropriate time. We think that's the right way to support subscription, and subscription is still a relatively small business."
Zelnick continued, saying that he isn't concerned about subscription services "cannibalizing" the traditional business of selling games at full price. This is certainly true at this point.
