Having shipped 33 million copies of 'Grand Theft Auto V' on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Take-Two's CEO dropped a hint about Rockstar's first title for new consoles.

'Rockstar Games is hard at work on their upcoming lineup, and we're excited about what they have in store for the new generation of systems this fiscal year,' said Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Rockstar's publisher Take-Two.

'Grand Theft Auto V' and its multiplayer counterpart 'Grand Theft Auto Online,' released September 2013, played a significant part in generating $2.35 billion worth of revenue for Take-Two by the end of its fiscal year in April 2014.

That figure was nearly double 2013's takings of $1.2b, despite the absence of a big fourth quarter release to rival the previous year's 'BioShock Infinite.'

Further elaboration on Rockstar's slate was not forthcoming, but 'Grand Theft Auto V' is seen as a no-brainer given its performance on older consoles and the series' flagship status: the studio group has also produced 'Max Payne 3,' 'Red Dead Redemption' and 'L.A. Noire' in recent years, as well as mobile versions of earlier 'Grand Theft Auto' games.

Other top performers from the Take-Two stable included 'NBA 2K14,' which became the sports franchise's best launch, and 'Borderlands 2,' released 2012, which is now the bestseller on Take-Two's 2K Games label.

'GTA V,' however, was 2013's best-selling console game in North America, Latin America and Europe combined, announced Take-Two.

Upcoming releases from the multinational publisher include 'NBA 2K15' in October and strategy title 'Civilization: Beyond Earth,' multiplayer shooter 'Evolve,' 'WWE 2K15' and low gravity spin-off 'Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel' before the year's end.
