So, Borderlands 3? It’s probably Borderlands 3, because it’s probably not a new Duke Nukem. It could be a new BioShock, maybe, but regular series developer Irrational Games closed up in 2014, and it’s definitely not a new Battleborn, and besides, Gearbox has basically already confirmed it’s busy with a new Borderlands game. It’s like the industry’s worst-kept secret by now.
Anyway, according to 2K’s recent financial report, the publisher is planning to cash in megabux with Red Dead Redemption 2 and whatever-it-is during fiscal 2019 for corporate drones, or sometime between April 2018 and March 2019 for everybody else:
That said, we still expect fiscal 2018 to be a year of strong earnings and cash provided by operating activities for Take-Two, despite an unusually light release slate, driven by new releases of NBA 2K and WWE 2K, our robust catalog led by Grand Theft Auto, and innovative offerings designed to drive engagement and recurrent consumer spending. Looking ahead to fiscal 2019, we expect to deliver both record Net Sales and record net cash provided by operating activities, in excess of $2.5 billion and $700 million, respectively, led by the launches of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 and a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises.
