The following video is from Wednesday’s installment of The Motley Fool’s Weekly Tech Review, in which analysts Eric Bleeker and Jason Moser look at the biggest stories driving the tech sector this week.
The nature of hit video game franchises has changed. Activision Blizzard‘s (NASDAQ: ATVI ) main franchise, Call of Duty, is on yearly refresh cycles. In stark contrast, it’s been five years since the last installment of Take-Two‘s (NASDAQ: TTWO ) Grand Theft Auto. Will this long delay hurt sales, or will the wait only increase gamers’ interest? Also, has the difference in strategy between Activision and Take-Two led to better returns for investors in either company?
In the video below, Jason and Eric discuss Grand Theft Auto 5 and the state of investing in video game publishers.
