GTAV will will be launching for the next generation of consoles, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, in the second half of calendar 2021. The next generation version will feature technical, visual and performance upgrades. A standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online will launch exclusively for the PS5 and will be free during the first three months.
Take-Two also announced Red Dead Redemption 2 sales have topped 32 million units, NBA 2K20 sales are over 14 million units, Borderlands 3 sales are over 10.5 million units, and. The Outer Worlds sales are now over 2.8 million units.
Take-Two announced GAAP net revenue for the quarter ending June 30, 2020 increased year-over-year by 54 percent from $540.5 million to $831.3 million, while GAAP net income increased 91 percent from $46.3 million to $88.5 million.
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick told GamesIndustry, "Look, our quarter's a little bit skewed, because catalog was 92% of our business, and obviously catalog skews heavily toward digital distribution, so 92% of our net bookings in the quarter were digitally-delivered. That's a pretty high number.
"I actually don't think there's an irreducible minimum of physical distribution. I think it depends on consumer behavior. And I've made no secret of my belief that over time, this is a digitally-delivered business. But right now, physical distribution is still a very important part of the business, and physical retailers are our partners and we see them as very important industry partners.
"But over time, I think if you look at every other entertainment medium, it's a matter of time before the business is entirely digital."
Take-Two expects digital revenue to account for 87 percent of its revenue for the year, which is up from 82 percent last year.
Take-Two increased its forecast for the full fiscal year. Net revenue forecast has been increased from a range of $2.63 billion to $2.73 billion up to $2.8 billion to $2.9 billion.
