The extraordinary success of Grand Theft Auto V illustrates the positive momentum in our business and consumers’ enduring appetite for the highest-quality interactive entertainment.”
Those sales, along with BioShock Infinite and the Brave New World expansion for Civilization V, drove $1.27 billion in revenue for the publisher, a $288 million improvment year-to-year. Take 2 is now expecting to earn over $2.2B for the fiscal year.
