Take-Two Interactive, parent company of Rockstar Games, the developer behind the critically-acclaimed "Grand Theft Auto" franchise, has recently rolled out its latest financial report that details the success of the company during its first fiscal of 2017. Interestingly enough, though, the company has revealed something that will make fans curious, and it is about the things that gamers should look forward to on the road ahead.

"Rockstar Games also is hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon," Take-Two Interactive announced during its most recent investors' call for the first fiscal year 2017, according to the report from GameSpot.

Many fans got really interested because of this cryptic announcement that Take-Two made. There are, of course, many potential titles that fit the bill, but it seems like there is one that is likely to be revealed.

PC Gamer speculated that the much awaited next installment to the popular "Red Dead Redemption (RDR)" franchise seems quite inevitable.

Many reports and speculations have pointed out that "Red Dead Redemption 2" is bound to get released sooner or later. The most recent one was back in June, where past rumors claimed that Rockstar Games would make an announcement about the RDR2 at the massive Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) held that month. But Sony, unfortunately, debunked this rumor a few days after it hit the Internet, saying that the game was never added on the list of titles that the company had set.

Unfortunately, it would take quite some time before Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games officially confirm the projects that the latter has. There are also no indications, at least concrete ones, which may prove that RDR2 is in fact included in those future projects.

With all that in mind, fans are advised to take this with a pinch of salt and consider it as a mere speculation until both companies officially confirm the claims for "Red Dead Redemption 2."
