Take-Two Financials

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Reports Strong Results for Fiscal Second Quarter 2019. "In addition, the Company provided its initial financial outlook for its fiscal third quarter ending December 31, 2018, and raised its financial outlook for its fiscal year ending March 31, 2019." They offer details on the big bucks they raked in, and say their increased optimism for the year is fuelled by the success of Red Dead Redemption 2. Here's more:

“Take-Two delivered better-than-expected operating results, including growth in Net Bookings, during the fiscal second quarter,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. “This outperformance was driven primarily by Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, as well as the successful launch of NBA 2K19.

“On October 26th, Rockstar Games launched its highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2, the label’s first game built from the ground up for the current console generation. Red Dead Redemption 2 has received outstanding reviews, with numerous critics awarding the title a perfect score. The title is now tied with Grand Theft Auto V as the highest rated title on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a 97 Metacritic score. A massive commercial success, Red Dead Redemption 2 has set numerous records, including achieving the biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment, with over $725 million in retail sell-through during its first three days. Red Dead Redemption 2 sold-in more units in its first 8 days than the original blockbuster Red Dead Redemption sold in its first 8 years and, as of today, the title has sold-in over 17 million units worldwide.

“As a result of our strong second quarter performance and outstanding early results from Red Dead Redemption 2, we are raising our financial outlook for fiscal 2019, which is also poised to be a record year for Net Bookings and Adjusted Operating Cash Flow. Looking ahead, we have a strong development pipeline across our labels and are exceedingly well positioned for long-term growth and margin expansion.”

And bringing it to PC means another easy billion. No way they're passing up on that again.

So much for EA saying single-player is dead. How out of touch can you be?
It's a lot easier to cash in on some cheap MOBA, though ….

still playing through the first before i dig into this one. havent even heard or seen anything since release, just the trailer that came out a couple weeks before. Sounds like they pulled off a monumental success with those sales numbers though. Holy cow.

I rolled credits on RDR2 last night... so good. I kinda wanna go back and replay the first one again, but I'm not sure how it will hold up. I've started Horizon Zero Dawn this evening and even that pales a bit in comparison, technically.

I think they are tied with Blizzard.
