Can We Expect a New IP from Rockstar This Year?

With the ongoing success of their latest Grand Theft Auto title, shipping more than 45 million units only on consoles with the PC version soon to follow, it’s only obvious that Rockstar would follow with a new title this year. Many are expecting a new Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption sequel to be the company’s next title, but Wedbush Securities’ Michael Pachter disagrees.

“I don’t think the sequel to Red Dead Redemption is the next Rockstar game. Remember when I said there was some new IP that they’ve been working on since at least ‘09? I think that comes before Red Dead Revolution. I think a sequel to Midnight Club comes before Red Dead Revolution, and it wouldn’t shock me if a sequel to Manhunt came before Bully or Red Dead.”

“I think Rockstar has a really amazing number of great games and great IPs, and I don’t think that Rockstar are motivated by money. I think Rockstar are motivated by high quality game experiences. And I don’t think that they’re willing to abandon those other brands in order to generate higher sales for their parent company. I think that they want to keep all those brands alive. So I think before Red Dead Revolution you will get Midnight Club sequel and a new IP.”

The prediction given by Pachter points to a new IP being revealed by Rockstar close to E3. However, since Rockstar is not keen on showing their work at the E3 event, Pachter says that the company might host their own event somewhere in May.
