Take Two’s earnings report will have investors pumping fists and high-fiving, as the company had some ridiculously good sales figures to share.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the hottest ticket in town right now, having broken records everywhere except in a diminishing retail sector. In just eight days it’s managed to sell 17 million copies, which is more than Red Dead Redemption managed to date. If it keeps this up, there’ll be more people playing Cowboy than there are people with a Nintendo Switch in a matter of days!
Also bordering on the obscene, the perennial Grand Theft Auto V has now passed 100 million copies sold. It’s easily third on the list of all-time best selling video games, with only Minecraft on 154 million and Tetris’s many combined releases at around 170 million listed ahead of it.
So yeah, looks like Take Two employees are getting some healthy bonuses this Christmas…
