News: Sony strikes a deal with the GTA maker.
Sony's official PlayStation.Blog has the scoop that Sony and Rockstar Games have made a deal for Rockstar to create a brand new franchise exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
The news comes from Michael Shorrock, the Director of 3rd Party Relations at SCEA. Sadly, this is all we know at this time as Sony and Rockstar aren't ready to talk about the game yet. He was also clear that this not L.A. Noire, a previously announced PS3-only game from Rockstar.
"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.. This is really a win-win situation for both companies. As Jack mentioned in the interview with Geoff, this franchise is not LA Noire, but something all new. We agreed with Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive Software that we wouldn't disclose anything more about the deal or title at this time, so stay tuned, we'll share more info as soon as we can," Shorrock said.
We'll have more on Rockstar's next rollicking adventure soon.
