In the first quarter of the current fiscal year, Take-Two recorded a decline in revenues, albeit not too worrying. GTA V, GTA Online, Red Dead Redemption 2, Red Dead Online and Borderlands 3 continue to go strong, and the rewards have also come from Civilization 6 and NBA 2K21, which have sold over 11 million copies each.
Take-Two therefore expects a rosy future, and expects total revenues of 3.14-3.24 billion dollars at the end of the current fiscal year, which will end on March 31, 2022. In addition to mere numbers, the last meeting with shareholders of Strauss Zelnick’s company also gave us an overview of the games in development at Take-Two subsidiaries and due out before the end of this fiscal year.
By March 31, 2022, Take-Two plans to release a total of 21 games:
- 4 games from 2K Games: NBA 2K22, WWE 2K22, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and an as yet unannounced 2K game;
- 1 independent Private Division game: OlliOlli World;
- 10 free-to-play mobile games: not yet announced;
- 6 new interactions of previously released games: next-gen GTA 5, GTA Online Standalone, next-gen Kerbal Space Program and 3 unannounced games.
Our attention was caught by the last entry, in which we start with three ports / remasters not yet announced. Our thoughts immediately went to the next-gen version of Red Dead Redemption 2, long awaited but not yet officially presented: is it included among those three mysterious games? We consider it highly probable. The announcement could take place after the launch of Grand Theft Auto 5 set for November 11, 2012, after which there would be many months available to make it arrive on the market before the end of the current fiscal year.
