According to Take-Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnick during the company’s recent investor call (Take-Two is Rockstar’s parent company), he more or less confirmed that future titles released by the company are expected to feature microtransactions. Zelnick revealed that microtransactions account for 42% of Take-Two’s “net bookings” in the past quarter, so it’s not surprising that they would want to increase that amount.
Zelnick was quoted as saying, “We aim to have recurrent consumer spending opportunities for every title that we put out at this company.” he said. “It may not always be an online model, it probably won’t always be a virtual currency model, but there will be some ability to engage in an ongoing basis with our titles after release across the board.”
The CEO doesn’t name games specifically, but given that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be one of the company’s upcoming titles, there’s a chance that we could see the game adopt microtransactions, especially with games such as GTA V already adopting it. That being said, Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently set for a release in 2018.
