Take-Two Numbers Fall, Red Dead Hits 13 Million Sold

With no big-name titles, the numbers typically take a dive.

Take-Two Interactive has announced their third-quarter financials, and their net revenue was down to $236.3 million, which is a 40% drop from last year's nice $334.3 million.

Unsurprisingly, Take-Two attributed the fall-off to a lack of high-profile titles; during the previous third quarter, Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete were still selling quite well. Furthermore, they say the NBA lockout affected sales as well. So net income came in at only $29 million, which is way down from the $49.5 million Take-Two enjoyed the previous year.

The biggest contributors to Take-Two's bottom line were NBA 2K12 (4 million units) and L.A. Noire (5 million), and they offered updated lifetime sales of Red Dead: 13 million. Take-Two added that digital content comprised 11% of the company's total net revenue; this was led by Grand Theft Auto III for iOS and Android devices. Add-ons for RDR, GTA, and L.A. Noire helped, too.

Take-Two was forced to adjust their predictions for the fourth quarter and fiscal year (for the latter, instead of around $1 billion, they only expect between $790 and $840 million). Max Payne 3 was supposed to have arrived in March but with its delay, Take-Two had to rethink things. However, with MP3 coming later in the new fiscal year along with Grand Theft Auto V and Bioshock Infinite...well, maybe now's the time to pick up some TTWO stock.

Profits may have fallen, but I think they are still good numbers generally. Any developer would be happy selling $13 million of anything really. With "GTA V" around the corner, they will be making that many more millions...

looks like it will be delayed till after GTAV, which is just stupid considering it was announced so much earlier!
