Take-Two Interactive has already expressed its interest in creating content for the upcoming Nintendo Switch. No official statement and final decision have been made yet, but Take-Two president Karl Slatoff said that his company is "intrigued and excited" about the upcoming game console.

In a recent investor meeting, Take-Two Interactive, which owns Rockstar Games and 2K Sports, has praised Nintendo for its works on Nintendo Switch.

According to GameSpot, CEO Slatoff is optimistic about the console's potential and has discussed the company's approach in supporting Nintendo's upcoming game console.

As mentioned earlier by WWG, Karl Slatoff is the latest in a long list of executives that praised Nintendo for what it's done with the Switch gaming console.

Take-Two is the parent company of Rockstar Games and 2K Sports, which owns blockbuster properties like "Grand Theft Auto," "BioShock," "Borderlands," "Red Dead Redemption," "NBA 2K" and "WWE 2K." Take-Two Interactive is just one of a dozen of Switch's publishing partners Nintendo has mentioned during its Switch unveil in October.

But despite being mentioned earlier, Take-Two hasn't yet released any official statement about the said partnership. This means that Take-Two has not yet committed to releasing any games for the upcoming Nintendo Switch console.

Similarly, 2K Sports has not confirmed plans to bring an "NBA 2K" game to the Nintendo Switch. It has remained tight-lipped when asked about this.

At this time, Slatoff has not shared any detailed plans about how Take-Two will approach the new gaming platform. But the big man is viewing the console in a positive light.

In addition to Take-Two Interactive, Nintendo's other publishing partners also include Activision, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, Capcom, and Ubisoft.

Officially unveiled in October 2016, the Nintendo Switch is an upcoming hybrid video game console developed by Nintendo. It's currently set for release worldwide on March 2017.
