Published on 07/02/2023 at 22:48
GTA V is out for the first time in ten years. A game that holds almost all of the records and is on the verge of taking the top spot among the most successful games of all time.
More sales for GTA V!Layoffs are expected?
GTA V has always had more sales!
Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, has released its latest financial results. This is significant news since Grand Theft Auto V has once again broken a significant milestone! The game is now in second place among the best-selling video game titles of all time, with its 238 million sales.
A separate Rockstar Games creation is included in the Top 10 best-selling games of all time, namely Red Dead Redemption II. The 2018 game has just recorded a total of 50 million sales, which puts Take-Two's book in the seventh position among the best-selling titles.
Is there a chance of layoffs?
Take-Two claims to have achieved net sales below expectations despite these stats. Instead of $1.41 billion, the company "only" made $1.38 billion in net revenue for the quarter. The Midnight Suns' low sales would be more or less to blame.
Take-Two Interactive is planning to reduce costs in the coming months in order to save roughly $50 million per year, although Strauss Zelnick, the CEO, says the business does not intend to lay off employees on a large scale – good news.
