For a long time now, Take-Two has teased an upcoming game from one of 2K's "biggest and most beloved franchises," and it may soon be time that we find out what it is. As part of its earnings report, Take-Two reaffirmed that this unannounced game remains on track to release during the company's fiscal year 2020. More interestingly, Take-Two said 2K will have "more to share" on the game in the coming months.

During the call, an analyst asked about the game, and CEO Strauss Zelnick said the company expects the game to "stay on track" following its previous delay. He added that the company has "very high expectations" for the game, whatever it may be.

This unannounced game was previously scheduled to launch during fiscal year 2019, which runs April 2018 through March 2019. However, it was later delayed to fiscal year 2020, which covers April 2019 through March 2020, so that's when you can expect this new sequel from 2K.

Take-Two CFO Lainie Goldstein said the company has modelled some marketing spend for the new game during the current fiscal year, so that suggests the title may be announced before April 2019.

Speculation has suggested that the game may be Borderlands 3, or whatever the next title in the series ends up being called. Regardless, a new Borderlands is known to be in development. Another possibility is the new BioShock game that is reportedly in development. Back in April 2018, Kotaku reported that a top-secret new BioShock game was in the works at a studio in Novato, California.

It's also possible that the delayed game is something else entirely, though it is expected to be a sequel given that Take-Two said it is an instalment in one of its "biggest franchises."

In other Take-Two news, the company recently opened a new 2K studio in Silicon Valley that's headed up by Michael Condrey, who worked on Dead Space and multiple Call of Duty games.

Plot twist: It's both in one. Biolands, like Borderlands, but with the powers from Bioshock and set on earth. Borderlands could really be set in the same or a parallel universe to Bioshock.

Wont be it but if it was College Hoops 2K20 I will slap my momma. Day one purchase, NBA 2K will be killed and buried.

can we get a decent boxing game? EA is extremely busy with their UnFinished Carcass of a game. (though its enjoyable also for a time)

NFL lets go. Man Ill be pumped if its nfl loved the old ps1 days. But with decades out of the game and first attempt in making this game can the devs deliver to rival or get close to EA's mechanics and controls? I dont know if they can beat them but sure hope so. If its nfl could be another IP maybe

It would be nice if it’s NFL 2K20. They made the best football game.

That sounds about right. They would be able to pull the same stunt they did with The Handsome Jack collection by offering the game on current gen systems, saying there will be no next gen version, and then releasing one anyway.

Pretty sure the game is gonna be GaaS'y though. 2K was one of the scant few publishers to defend EA's lootboxes, plus they said something to the effect that many of their future titles would be GaaS'y going forward, so expect Borderworlds to be all Destiny-like.

2K needs something good anyway their recent releases have been pretty underwhelming or bad... Battleborn, Mafia 3 and the NBA games.

@gamingdevil800: they are owned by take two, though. gta online and red dead redemption 2/online, along with nba 2k series is more than enough to sustain them. i'm more confused as to what happened to ken lavine... last i heard he was starting up a small studio under 2k? it would be cool if he was assisting on a new bioshock game, even if he wasn't directing.

@Xristophoros: Thought he went totally indie tbh.

@gamingdevil800: The Outer Worlds looks pretty rad so far.

@Barighm: That's Private Division basically a different branch of Take Two.

Avatar image for Barighm

@gamingdevil800: Still a 2K game.

@Barighm: It's technically not a 2K game. 2K doesn't really have a say on the game. Private Division was created to help indie developers publish their games.
