Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive said it was “highly skeptical” of subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and EA Play.
In a call to investors after the company’s earnings call, Take-Two chairman Karl Slatoff said that although the company was “open”, they didn’t think signing up would be “the only way or” the main way “that gamers will play in the Future.”
“I don’t think our views have changed much. We are open-minded,” Slatoff told a caller asking about the company’s views (thanks, GI.biz). “We highly doubt that subscriptions will be the only or primary way to distribute interactive entertainment.
“That̵7;s the way people consume it. And the price to own a title is, very reasonable and very, very low, on an hourly basis. “
He added that while the company has supported such services in the past – both GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 already exist on Xbox Game Pass – and hopes to continue to “play a role in the catalog “,” at the end of the day, the consumer will decide and where we will be the consumer “.
