Rockstar parent 'sceptical' over bringing mature games to Wii U

But next-gen transition "a great opportunity," says CEO Zelnick

Take-Two Interactive - parent company of Rockstar and 2K Games - has expressed scepticism over the possibility of moving the company's big-name mature titles onto Wii U.


Take-Two will make sports and family titles for the Wii U, reports Gamasutra, but so far its bigger core franchises have been notably absent from Wii U's partner list.

CEO Strauss Zelnick told Gama: "We haven't announced anything," adding specifically on the possibility of moving the company's mature titles onto the Wii U: "I'm sceptical."

Scepticism shouldn't be mistaken for a pessimistic attitude towards next generation consoles however, as the Take-Two boss sounds eager to kick off the next cycle.

"For a company like ours, it's a great opportunity," he says. "[New console launches] separate the winners from the losers -- and we fully expect to be one of the winners."

EA's another publisher yet to announce a significant number of Wii U titles, although it told us at E3 last week it's "holding fire" on its Nintendo announcements until its titles are more polished.

"We'll have a bigger line-up for Wii U than we did on the Wii," Labels boss Frank Gibeau said.
