Publisher Take-Two Interactive is continuing to rake in success from Rockstar Games, but the company is looking to launch a broad range of games in the future.
As Take-Two Interactive shared in its Q4 2022 fiscal results, the company reported net bookings of $3.41 billion. Grand Theft Auto 5 crossed 165 million copies sold, empowered by the launch of an Xbox Series X|S and PS5 port in March 2022.
This is up from 160 million copies sold in the previous quarter, continuing the clockwork-esque sales of Rockstar Games' juggernaut title. Meanwhile, Rockstar Games' more recent title, the western adventure, Red Dead Redemption 2, is at 44 million sold.
While Take-Two Interactive didn't share sales figures for Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, CEO Strauss Zelnick noted in a conference call accompanying the financial results that the game "exceeded expectations" and that 30% of players had not previously played a Borderlands game.
Looking ahead, Take-Two Interactive plans to publish multiple games in fiscal 2023, including Supermassive Games' horror title The Quarry, a new Tales from the Borderlands game, and Marvel's Midnight Suns from Firaxis Games. The former is slated to arrive on June 10, 2022, while the latter has a Fall 2022 release window. In the more immediate future, the publisher is expecting to close its acquisition of Zynga on May 23, 2022. At he purchase is one of the largest video game acquisitions of all time, second only to Microsoft's pending purchase of Activision Blizzard for almost $69 billion.
Even further ahead, Take-Two Interactive plans to launch 69 games by fiscal 2025. The company is officially working on the next Grand Theft Auto game, which is likely Grand Theft Auto 6. The publisher also signed a deal with Remedy Entertainment to work on a remake of Max Payne and Max Payne 2.
