In response to investors’ questions about how a publisher decides when to release games like GTA VI, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick reiterated that Rockstar Games strives for excellence, and when it feels it has achieved the creative ideal, then it will release game _

He assured that both the developers and senior management have a financial incentive to ensure the project’s production is completed on time. Zelnick noted that there is a potential conflict between releasing a game and trying to achieve perfection, but Rockstar Games is leaning toward the latter.
