- Revenue: $930.1 million
- Profit: $163.6 million
- GTA 5 sales: 120 million copies.
- RDR2 sales: 29 million copies.
Take-Two Interactive has published a financial report which includes updated sales results for Rockstar Games. Grand Theft Auto V has sold over 120 million copies. It is worth recalling that in May last year, the game sales exceeded 110 million copies, so for the last nine months it found an additional 10 million buyers.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is also doing very well. Over 29 million copies of this production have already been sold. In the report for the previous quarter, the result was 26.5 million, but since then the game has debuted on PC.
The excellent results of both titles are no surprise. Especially GTA 5 is still very popular and last December was the best month for the game in two years. The Take-Two Interactive report also includes information that the past quarter was a record-breaking one in terms of revenue for Grand Theft Auto Online.
In the third quarter of the financial year, i.e. from October 1 to December 31, 2019, Take-Two Interactive's total revenue amounted to USD 930.1 million, 300 million less than in the corresponding three months of 2018. The profit closed at $163.6 million, a decrease of $13.3 million.
Worse results are no surprise. In the second half of last year, the company released such popular productions as Borderlands 3, NBA 2K20, or The Outer Worlds, but these titles cannot compare to how successful Red Dead Redemption 2 was in 2018.
37% of the company's revenue in the past quarter was generated by the so-called recurring consumer spending, in other words microtransactions. Interestingly, the leader in this category was NBA 2K20, not Grand Theft Auto Online.
