Just like the “Super Mario,” “Minecraft” and “Pokemon Go,” the Grand Theft Auto is one of those series that is evergreen and will always be.
The game is so influential that it can move the market serious time even if the studio (ROCKSTAR GAMES) teases a new game and this is something happened in the past few days.
A recent article published on Business Insider says, “On Sunday, at 9 a.m. ET, Rockstar Games’ social media channels all published a single image: a blood-red Rockstar Games logo with a faded/worn-looking outline. Video game fans pounced — could it be? Finally? The long-awaited sequel to 2010 Rockstar hit “Red Dead Redemption”?”
This color and unique style is lined up, and it has been over six years since “Red Dead Redemption” launched Xbox 360 and PlasyStation3. This was a formula popularized by “Grand Theft Auto” series a kind of Western take on the third person.
Well, “”Red Dead Redemption” was more serious in tone than the “GTA” games, and is widely lauded for some of the finest storytelling that video games — as a medium – offer.”-Business Insider
Once again on Monday morning right at 9 a.m. ET they (Rockstar) teased another image.
Business Insider say, “‘Grand Theft Auto’ is so influential, the company’s stock just exploded after teasing a new game Ben Gilbert 1h 2,815 FACEBOOK LINKEDIN TWITTER EMAIL PRINT The “Grand Theft Auto” series is among the likes of “Super Mario,” “Minecraft,” “Pokémon,” and “Tetris.” It’s such a big deal, culturally, that it’s a market-moving event when the studio behind “Grand Theft Auto” — Rockstar Games — even teases a new game. Such is the case with the past few days. On Sunday, at 9 a.m. ET, Rockstar Games’ social media channels all published a single image: a blood-red Rockstar Games logo with a faded/worn-looking outline. Video game fans pounced — could it be? Finally? The long-awaited sequel to 2010 Rockstar hit “Red Dead Redemption”? Rockstar Games Rockstar Games The color and the style certainly lined up. It’s been six years since “Red Dead Redemption” launched on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 — a Western take on the third-person, open-world formula popularized by the “Grand Theft Auto” series.
“Red Dead Redemption” was more serious in tone than the “GTA” games, and is widely lauded for some of the finest storytelling that video games — as a medium – offer. On Monday morning, again at 9 a.m. ET, Rockstar teased another image: Red Dead Redemption 2 (teaser) Rockstar Games Gunslingers against an artfully setting sun — with the same blood-red color in the original tease, which is a signature color scheme of the previous game. Keep in mind: Rockstar’s still not said a word (or responded to request for comment). These images were published without any text, though the second image is admittedly more straightforward than the first.”
Still, Rockstar’s parent company — Take-Two Interactive — is enjoying a massive spike in its stock price:” Here is the proof through graph.
It clearly shows that Take-Two Interactive’s (TTWO) stock price has boomed on Monday morning from $42.50/share to a whopping $45.50/share just from the tease of a game. What could be the possible rise if the game is actually released or there is a news? Also this must be noted that we aren’t here discussing about Rockstar’s marquee franchise (“GTA”).
Surely they will reveal about this in the upcoming days and we will keep you updated regarding this and it could be a happy news from the Take-Two stockholders. Can’t wait for this new beauty to enter the market.
