Take-Two Interactive Profits See Big Increase
Take-Two Interactive finished with a strong third quarter ending Dec. 31, 2012.
The company had a net revenue of $415.7 million, up 75.9 percent from last year. However, net income, or its profit, was up to $71.3 million, up a whopping 405.9 percent from 2012.
A lot of the numbers come from Borderlands 2, which is close to shipping 6 million units. CEO Strauss Zelnick said the shooter may become @K’s best seller.
“Building on its extraordinary launch in September, Borderlands 2 continues to expand its audience and remains on pace to become the highest-selling title in 2K’s history,” Zelnick said. “It has also been the largest contributor to our digitally delivered revenue this year, driven both by strong sales of full game downloads, and high attach rates for the title’s add-on content, especially the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.”
It was also added that the XCOM shooter is set to launch during FY 2014, between this April and March 2014.
