Take 2 Q3 FY 2012 financial results: Borderlands 2 sells 6 million

Take-Two has released its financial figures for Q3 FY 2012 and the results are quite good. They have made a profit of $436 million up from $236 million year-over-year. The company has also released figures for key titles like Borderlands 2 and NBA 2k12 and has also commented on their plans for next-gen.

They said that they are prepared for next-gen systems and will offer great content once the systems are out. He also said that GTA 5 will blow people away.

“GTA 5 will blow everyone away and not one gamer will hold out on it waiting on something better to come along. Assuming next-gen consoles are coming – and some of us think they are, Take-Two will have extraordinary offerings,” Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick said.

Borderlands 2 sold 6 million and NBA 2k12 did 4.5 million. They have also revealed their games release schedule for 2013.

“Take-Two’s positive business momentum continued in the third quarter, enabling us to deliver growth and profits that exceeded our outlook,” he said.

“Our results benefited from the record-breaking launch of NBA 2K13, along with continued strong demand for Borderlands 2, the successful launch of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and robust holiday sales of our catalog and growing portfolio of digitally delivered offerings.

“With consumer anticipation building for the launches of BioShock Infinite and Grand Theft Auto 5, we are well positioned for a solid finish to fiscal year 2013 and substantial revenue and earnings growth in fiscal year 2014.”

Here’s their release schedule:

  • Borderlands 2: Add-On Content Pack – February 26, 2013
  • Major League Baseball 2K13 – March 5, 2013
  • BioShock Infinite – March 26, 2013
  • Grand Theft Auto 5 – September 17, 2013
  • XCOM – Fiscal Year 2014
