Management says it was pleased with the launches of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which grossed $ 84 million the month it was released, and the recovery of WWE 2K22 that exceeded expectations, such as Red Dead Redemption 2. Keep in mind that the wrestling game hit a 2020 low before taking another year to rebuild. As a result, WWE 2K22 achieved the most franchise launch in the United States. Take-Two Interactive recognized, however, a decrease in players ’recurring investment in the first months of the year, either due to intense competition or after the impact of incarceration.

Grand Theft Auto 5 won’t be slow to release it on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. So the game went on a small quarterly run and added 5 million copies from a total that now reaches 165 million copies distributed worldwide (375 million for the franchise). Grand Theft Auto 5 has been the best -selling game in the United States in the past 10 years, both in volume and in dollars. Red Dead Redemption 2, another mainstay at Rockstar Games, sold an additional 1 million copies between January and March, bringing its total to 44 million (67 million for the franchise).

At the same time, Borderlands 3 has surpassed 15 million copies since its launch and contributed to the franchise’s impressive total sales: 75 million, more than Civilization (61 million) and BioShock (39 million). NBA 2K22 is worthy of its predecessors by surpassing the mark of 10 million copies, while the franchise now has a total of 123 million games sold. With 3 million copies sold worldwide, the PGA Tour 2K21 is already the third best -selling golf game in U.S. history.

For the new financial year, Take-Two Interactive expects a record turnover of at least 3.5 billion euros while net profit will drop in contrast to about 230 million euros. These purposes do not take into account Zynga’s acquisition, even if it is due to end on May 23, 2022.

Just to mention the titles already announced, the fiscal year schedule includes The Quarry (June 10, 2022), Marvel’s Midnight Suns, NBA 2K23, WWE 2K23, PGA Tour 2K23 and the Tales from Borderland in the Gearbox development . As for the delay, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on iOS and Android is still waiting for the release date and Kerbal Space Program 2 is already expected in early 2023 on PC (and later in 2023 on consoles). The game’s creative director posted a message for the players, knowing there was talk of a series that was originally intended for release in 2020.

In total, Take-Two Interactive plans to release 18 new games between April 2022 and March 2023. Among them, at least 8 mobile games, it is known that the new- Zynga’s release is still not being considered. And since the round ball question will inevitably fall during the presentation of the results, no, Take-Two doesn’t intend to reach for a FIFA license and go and look for Electronic Arts on the well-guarded lawn. “We are clearly interested in expanding our sports opportunities, and FIFA is a great brand with tremendous influence, but for now we have no plans to discuss“, replied CEO Strauss Zelnick. Recall that the boss of FIFA, he says that an opponent of EA Sports FC is on the market from 2024.
