Take-Two Interactive is a pretty big fish to say the least, with such titles as Bioshock, Borderlands, Red Dead Redemption and, of course, Grand Theft Auto in its gaming arsenal. And just in case anybody was in doubt about their size, they recently proved themselves with their record-breaking deal to acquire Zynga for a cool $12.7bn. A record they held for all of a week until Microsoft swiftly stole that thunder by buying Activision Blizzard for $68.7bn.
But, record-breaking or not, the deal agreed in January was huge news. Zynga is the company responsible for such industry powerhouses as Farmville and Words With Friends, and their acquisition by Take-Two is a significant sign that Take-Two is about to take on the app gaming sphere in earnest.
This week, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick commented on the move by saying, “We are thrilled to complete our combination with Zynga. As we bring together our exceptional talent, exciting pipelines of games, and industry-leading technologies and capabilities, we believe that we can take our portfolio to another level of creativity, innovation, and quality.”
And sure, innovation is all well and good, but there’s one thing the people need posthaste, and that’s a mobile port of Take-Two’s most popular video game, Grand Theft Auto V.
People have been so desperate to get GTA V or GTA Online mobile that there are already multiple ‘third-party’ workarounds for those who are desperate to play the latest GTA instalment on their mobile screens. Which is why it would seem extra prudent for Take-Two to get to work immediately on releasing their own official port. That, and the extra mountains of cash that it will no doubt spawn.
We’ve already recently seen just how successful a simple mobile port of a popular IP can be in Apex Legends Mobile’s recent win. And stories such as that make us all but certain that we’ll be hearing news of a GTA Mobile port imminently – so watch this space.
