This is due to the limited number of next-generation systems that are being installed in homes. Zelnick adds "It's always a crossover between taking the time to make sure that the name is impressive and being mindful of the existing base." "The installed base is expected to be smaller than it was at time of the end of 2021's calendar."
Take-Two as well as other publishers won't see the next generation consoles as major contributors to their profits within the next few years. This is because their release schedules don't line up with the PS5 or Xbox Series X. Zelnick is confident about the potential they will bring to the gaming market.
However, he does observe that both hard drives could be smaller than expected. Take-Two is yet to have had much excitement about cloud gaming. This could be an issue for the company and its customers.
