Take Two Interactive , owner and publisher of 2K Games , Rockstar Games and mobile developer Zynga , released a new earnings report today.  Take Two, with a net income of $1.1 billion, had a successful profile in terms of revenue, but announced that it suffered a loss of $ 104 million due to the costs of acquiring Zynga (a purchase of $ 12.7 billion that will be partially paid over time) and other reasons .

At the current point , 94% of Take Two’s revenue comes from digital sales  and 75% from live-service style “recurring consumer spending”, which includes in-game sales. The most interesting statistic for gamers is that GTA V has sold “almost” a mind-boggling 170 million copies . The last information we learned about 18 months ago was that the game sold 140 million copies. So the game is still showing incredible sales success, and it won’t be hard to reach 200 million at this rate.

Take Two Expects Main Revenue From Zynga

Meanwhile  , Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 45 million copies , but that’s apparently not enough to convince Take Two that a next-gen console update or continued Red Dead Online support is worth it.

Despite the continued success of GTA V, Rockstar is currently the smallest part of Take Two. Take Two expects Zynga to account for 45% of revenues for the full fiscal year 2023. The rest of the pie chart is made up of 2K Games (37%), Rockstar (17%), and indie publishing company Private Label (1%).

While it is still unclear whether Take Two’s acquisition of giant Zynga will generate the revenues it expects, investors are still not convinced based on the company’s stock price.
