Take-Two Q3s: Red Dead Redemption sells 8 million

Tuesday, 8 February 2011 21:23 GMT By Staff

Take-Two’s announced its Q3 financial results, confirming that Red Dead Redemption has sold 8 million units.

Take-Two Q3 financials

Red Dead Redemption has sold 8 million units.

NBA 2K sold 4 million units making it the best selling game in the series ever.

Team Bondi’s LA Noire releases on the week of May 16 in the US, Europe and UK. First gameplay footage hits Wednesday.

2K will release Duke Nukem Forever, developed by Gearbox, on May 3 in US and May 6 internationally.

2K announced The Darkness II earlier today. It’ll launch this autumn for PS3, 360 and PC.

The firm expects Top Spin 4, which is out in March, to set a new standard in the tennis game genre.

The Rockstar western went on sale last May for PS3 and 360, with major DLC expansion Undead Nightmare releasing last fall digitally and at retail. However, Take-Two would not go into specifics regarding the sales split between the disc version of Undead Nightmare and the retail version.

Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO of Take-Two said Rockstar has proved it knows how to make hits, continue to make hits and continue supporting it’s games post release.

For the third quarter ending on December 31, net revenue was down 7 percent year-over-year, compared to $334.3 million, which is better than the company’s expected $290 to $315 million for the period. Net profits were up 7 percent to $40.8 million for the period.

The strongest contributors to net revenue and profitability in the third quarter this year included NBA 2K11, Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, and Sid Meier’s Civilization V.

Catalog titles that contributed to the strength in the recent period were led by the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Digitally delivered content also continued to be an important component of Take-Two’s sales, particularly driven by strong sales offerings for Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands and Sid Meier’s Civilization V.

Nine-month revenue up 80 percent

For the nine-months ending on December 31, net revenue increased 80 percent year-over-year to $954.6 million. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations increased to $108.8 million, compared to a loss of $67.5 million for the year-ago period.

Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO of Take-Two said it was the fifth consecutive quarter the firm has met its financial expectations: “Strong holiday sales enabled Take-Two to continue to deliver
better-than-expected revenue and earnings in the third quarter. Our results year-to-date clearly demonstrate the Company’s ability to translate its world-class creative resources and diverse portfolio of triple-A franchises into meaningful profits.

“We have no update on Max Payne 3 at this time.”

“Looking ahead to the balance of the year and fiscal 2012, I have never been more enthusiastic about our diverse line-up of upcoming releases. In addition to producing triple-A titles focused on the traditional console market, we are also actively pursuing opportunities to grow our revenues by leveraging the strength of our brands in emerging markets and across new platforms and distribution channels. These include opportunities in Asia and Latin America, evolving downloadable content models and online multiplayer experiences.”

As far as the new handhelds were concerned, Zelnick said the firm is looking hard at NGP and 3DS, but is not ready to announce anything for either until it is “ready to do so.”

Take-Two’s COO Karl Slatoff said the market is continuing to grow, whether it be the installed base of consoles or digital content, and Take-Two plans to continue to be part of both in the future.

Current games slate for Take-Two:

  • Top Spin 4 – Xbox 360, PS3, Wii – March 15, 2011
  • Carnival Games: Monkey See, Monkey Do – Kinect for Xbox 360 – April 2011

    I know the gaming Industry so well I can tell who is going bankrupt and who is making money. I can tell you why this game is better than that game. I can tell why this game is popular and why this other game is not.I know all the trends in the gaming Industry. I can back this up with proof by links or video.

  43. Crysis

    “I can tell you why this game is better than that game” No, no you cannot, since that would be just opinion & an opinion proves nothing. R* makes popular games, no one cares that YOU hate them, heck i could bet that all your trolling is coming from the fact that R* doesn’t support the pc much, if you can go into details on EXACTLY what makes R*’s games ‘bad’ I’ll concede that R* is the Satan of gaming developers.

    @42

    “I know the gaming Industry so well I can tell who is going bankrupt and who is making money.”

    Holy shit, can you really? You should be a stockbroker or something, instead of wasting your days trolling the high holy heaven out of these forums.

    “I can tell you why this game is better than that game.”

    You can form an informed and well-written opinion can you? An objective one at that? Don’t kid yourself.

    “I can tell why this game is popular and why this other game is not.”

    The self-congratulatory patting on the back for carrying out such basic human functions continues unabated I see.

    “I know all the trends in the gaming Industry.”

    You don’t though, do you? You’re so pro-PC and fuck all else that you quite literally know… fuck all else.

    “I can back this up with proof by links or video.”

    Spamming the You-Tube Borg video from TNG doesn’t count you tool and any muppet can pick and choose videos from less-than-reputable sources to try and convey the failed notion that they know what they are talking about.

    Doubtless, you will reply to this with some kind of verbal excerement mired in the afterbirth of whatever generic trolling replies you can muster and as such, I really couldn’t care. Go ahead and do so.

    The only thing you and your trolling bretheren should be thankful for is that Pat keeps you on the forums and is sadly oblivious to just how well cunts like you drive away folks who have actual opinions and *gasp* some degree of objectivity.

    You and your tiresome, pathetic trolling ilk are a blight on this forum.

    Nobody respects you, wants to hear what you have to say or pays attention to any of your rantings.

    Long story short; You sir, are an oxygen thief and in lieu of being able to ignore cunts like you (either passively or through an ignore feature which I severely doubt will ever materialise) I would ask that you scrape together some fucking integrity from wherever you can and leave.

If you notice I just love to give links.Your looking at the who made Peter Molyneux. I am not surprised if the who gaming Industry knows my name.

    In fact I am so well know in the gaming Industry some game devs give personal beta invite for some games.

    @45 After that post, I think we can safely say that you’re actually a smart and intelligent troll, and that this personality of PC fanboyism is nothing more than one giant charade.

    It would be nice if Pat or someone else bothered to check the IPs of some of these posters, see if they match anyone else.

    so your resort to name calling when people don’t agree with you. Your right I am smart and I am a gamer not a fanboy the reason you resort to name calling is because I don’t agree with you. By the way when I shot down there was not big name Industry agreeing with me but also the media why I can prove it with links

    there is a reason why a lot of gamers don’t respect a lot of gaming sites like ng4,game spot or IGN. I would hate to see vg247 go down that route. vg247 is a respectable honest gaming site.

    It the very reason I come here every day for my gaming news. Must of the time I have a lot more info than vg247 does.

    these days it’s good to have “creditability” then to have “false” information and “fanboyism” for a gaming site. Real gamers can tell and people can tell.

    I was just thinking to myself that Theirs not as many freaks on the streets ranting about the end of the world & Jebus nowadays. Then I realised their all on the internet, ranting about real gamers & which plastic box of electronics is best.

    I was right about Infinty ward with call of duty. I bought GTA but I am not a big fan GTA games I fine them boring personaly. However there is a lot pc gamers that love rockstars but I see rockstar treat them like dirt.

    frankly there are some game devs that treat their fan base like dirt. Personally I don`t why people want to support game devs like that.

    I would rather buy a game from game devs like the guys who made border lands than rockstar. the game devs that made border lands love their games and fanbase.

    I would rather spend money on publisher like THQ because they respect their fan base.

    You want to know why blizzard,Valve,bio-ware,arena net,Dice is so loved by pc gamers because those game devs remember their fans. Those game devs got their back even when they are making the big money

    This is off topic, people are not going to see the world as you do. it`s a hard truth.
