New franchise â??can only truly be doneâ?? on next-gen console
Rockstar Games is developing a new title that will be exclusive to PS3.
SCEA’s Michael Shorrock revealed the news on the official US PlayStation blog on Friday. He wrote that Sony had ‘agreed to the PlayStation-exclusive rights of the next great franchise from the Rockstar studios’.
"Everyone knows to have success in this business you need to look ahead, identifying the talent and titles that are going to give consumers new kinds of gaming experiences that help set the bar for the rest of the industry.
"Rockstar has a heritage for doing just that. We have had incredible success with the GTA franchise and are happy to continue to offer those titles on our platforms, and even more excited about what’s to come from the current and future relationship between our companies.
"Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3, harnessing the power of Cell and Blu-ray disc and this deal lets them do just that."
