Rockstar Games preparing to announce new games 'Soon'

With E3 less than a month away, the Grand Theft Auto 5 developer could be preparing a bombshell or two for the show.

23

We already know Square Enix will be coming to Los Angeles with a stacked deck, and according to an earnings report from Rockstar parent company Take-Two, the GTA 5 developer has more than one ace up its sleeve, too.

"Rockstar Games is of course hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon," per the earnings report (via GameSpot).

That's projects, plural, and one of them is very likely a sequel or prequel to 2010's Red Dead Redemption. Another possibility: a game based on Judas, one of the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ who betrayed him and committed suicide out of guilt.

And while it seems way too soon for any concrete details, we might get a formal announcement of Grand Theft Auto 6, known to be in early stages of development.

      Whatever happened to that game they announced at E3 years ago that was supposed to be a PlayStation exclusive? Never heard anything about else about it.

            You play as wtf242 in Austin.


            Main quest:

            Nine years after a dreaded Shack meet in the town of Dallas, former code developer Shane has relocated to Austin under a new identity: wtf242. wtf242 is living a normal but boring life, until he encounters Evil Dolemite, a technician who seeks to elevate himself in the Austin area as an IT professional, and unexpectedly encounters Man Washer, a man who runs the business of washing other men. The three join forces to carry out a daring task of creating a company that washes men but requires an IT infrastructure with a coded website. However, the trio find themselves being taken advantage of by wtf242's wife and mother in law who are using the three to carry out their own agenda, as well as numerous confrontations with rival man washing stations. In addition, Man Washer discovers that Evil Dolemite is hiding a terrible secret from the dread Shack meet in Dallas. Despite this challenges, will the trio succeed in pulling off one of the biggest man washing businesses of all time?

            Side missions include:

            Flower delivery. Help your wife deliver flowers to customers. Try to beat the clock while avoiding enraged Austin taxi drivers.

            Romance quests: You can now have a romance with whistletits, manwasher, or EvilDolemite (there's also one secret character..I'll give you a hint, it could be briefcase dude). You have to hang out with them on several side missions that get crazier and crazier. One mission involves going to CASINO and ordering a burger. You have to wait for a burger in real time, and there's a 50/50 chance you will get a medium rare burger. Get a medium rare burger, and your rep goes up (along with romance options).

            BBQ: Try to make the perfect BBQ without enraging the wife. If you fail this mode, you toss the BBQ over the side of a cliff and lose money/reputation.

            New modes:

            Home base customization: This is a new mode where you can customize your home base with home construction. The only twist is that you have to complete side missions for the mother in law in order to gain more cash to do more home construction.

            Post on the shack: Try to get as many lol tags as possible. You do this by using several enraging keywords such as wife and house. This is done in the style of tetris.

      My wish list: Bully 2, Agent, and LA Noire sequel. I would love a RDR 2 as well but that game was so perfect, I almost don't want a sequel incase it gets ruined.

        If they did a remastered edition on PC, I would buy a copy. Or even just a straight port. I'm not picky.
