Take-Two’s Cash-Cows Continue To Gather Profit

Take-TwoRed Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V both sell well.

Rockstar Games‘ two titles, as well as their respective online sections (Red Dead Online, Grand Theft Auto Online) still earn a ton of cash. Despite Grand Theft Auto V launching in September 2013 (on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 – the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions came 1-1.5 years later), it still sells like hotcakes. It has more than 120 million sales, and just in 2019, GTA V sold twenty million copies, mostly boosted by the Diamond Casino (which you can use with real money unless you live in a country where gambling is banned).

Red Dead Redemption 2 – which is now available on PC as well on both the Epic Games Store and Steam – has more than 29 million sales. That figure is almost twice as much as the first game’s sales, but the gaming industry has grown since, and thus, you can’t fairly compare a 2018/2019’s game results with a 2010 one (which also skipped the PC, as it was only on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360). Borderlands 3 is at 8 million sales, and The Outer Worlds is at 2 million.

Grand Theft Auto V has become such an evergreen title that in January, it was the best-selling PlayStation 4 title on the PlayStation Store in both North America and Europe. It underlines Grand Theft Auto V’s success. (It also „won” 2019.)

Meanwhile, Hangar 13, the devs of 2016’s Mafia III, will reveal their next game in the coming months. Karl Slatoff, the president of Take-Two, said it, and he added that their studio in the Silicon Valley will also do the same. (That studio is led by Michael Condrey, who was a co-founder of Sledgehammer, one of the three Call of Duty studios.)

Grand Theft Auto V will become a game that everyone owns…
