Rockstar Games, the subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive responsible for games like Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption, and L.A. Noire, will release a game for "next-gen" consoles during the company's current fiscal year. That means this game, presumably for Xbox One and/or PlayStation 4, will be released sometime before March 31, 2015.

Unfortunately, no other details about what this project could be were made available today. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said during a post-earnings financial call that he is "very excited about what [Rockstar Games] have in store for next-gen systems."

Could one of these projects be announced at E3 2014 next month? Historically, Rockstar Games does not attend the annual trade show, but Take-Two management didn't specifically say no when asked by an analyst today.

"At this point, Rockstar has not announced that they're going to be attending E3," Take-Two president Karl Slatoff said.

According to Take-Two, the Rockstar Games label will make up 45 percent of the company's total revenue in the coming year, which assumes the release of a major title. Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian believes GTA V will come to Xbox One and PS4 in 2014, but of course this is unconfirmed.

Take-Two posted record profit of over $500 million for its fiscal year ended March 31, helped by the massive success of GTA V, the company announced today.
