Now Playing: GS News Update: Rockstar Will Reveal New Projects "Soon," GTA 5 Still Going Strong

Take-Two today reported the results of its first fiscal of 2017, which ended on June 30, 2016. Thanks to Grand Theft Auto V--and GTA Online--it was a relatively successful quarter for the company, though it still experienced a loss.

GAAP net revenue was on the rise during the quarter, growing 13 percent to $311.6 million (compared with $275.3 million during the same period last year). Take-Two identified GTA V, GTA Online, NBA 2K16, and Battleborn as the main contributors, although CEO Strauss Zelnick noted in a conference call with investors that Battleborn did not perform as well as expected.

No Caption Provided

Digital net revenue was also up for the quarter, from $154 million last year to $172.1 million this year. Similarly, what Take-Two calls "recurrent consumer spending"--things like DLC and virtual currency--was up 18 percent year-over-year, accounting for 31 percent of the company's total net revenue. Take-Two noted that GTA Online had record bookings but didn't specify exactly how much money it generated.

Take-Two did suffer a net loss for the quarter of $38.6 million, but that's almost half of what it lost ($67 million) during the same period last year.

As part of its earnings, Take-Two also revealed that the console versions of XCOM 2 had been delayed slightly. They will now launch on September 27 in North America and September 30 internationally.

It also touched on Rockstar's next projects, albeit as vaguely as it possibly could. It stated, "Rockstar Games also is hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon."

Finally, it noted that the Civilization franchise has shipped more than 35 million units.

It's 2 more GTA 5 add-ons. Don't get your hopes up since Rock* has to milk the cow dry lol. A new Midnight Club would be awesome though.

@sonypony4eva: Thats a good point. I think they might make a single player dlc, like they did with "The Ballad of Gay Tony". A "cheap" way of making a "new" game, using the same map/world just adding some "new" cars and such. And with a couple of "new" characters..

The long awaited Red Dead 2 would be awesome though.

@gotrekfabian: Since there hasent ever been a Read Dead 2, i would say that they would make the 2nd before the 3rd ;)

@doublem-k: Red dead redemption was the second game

Red dead revolver > Red dead redemption > Red dead (insert name or number here once rockstar have decided what to call it)

@normanislost: That is correct, i did forget about that. But still there hasent been a Red Dead 2 ;)

@doublem-k: "Red dead redemption was the second game", seemed to sum it up pretty well but I guess not. Since they don't go by numbers, but rather "R" words after "Red Dead", Redemption is, for all intents and purposes, Red Dead 2.

@deathlung217: The number 2 seemed to sum it up pretty well, buy i guess not. Since there hasent been a Red Dead with the number 2 behind it. You didnt seem you get my point either. Obviously from my other comment further up, i know that Redemption was the second game..

@doublem-k: Oh I got what you were saying, I was just telling you how dumb/unfunny it was. You didn't know it was the second, or you wouldn't have said "i would say that they would make the 2nd before the 3rd ;)". You conveniently "forgot ;)" after someone pointed it out to you. There has been a Red Dead with the number two behind it. An understood number two, understood by everyone but you. I get it, you mean literally, a game titled "Red Dead 2". I got it, it just wasn't funny, or remotely buyable that THAT was the joke you were making all along.

*But.

*Hasn't. Don't get so flustered you can't type

@deathlung217: As i said to the other guy in the comment, if you opened your eyes to look. And as i said to you, i agreed that there was Red Dead Revolver. So it kinda ends there, no need for you to write all that. But thanks for trying to be a "know it all, correct others mistakes" smartass anyway ;)

Edit: And i didnt know i was here to try to entertain you with jokes ;)

@doublem-k: Jesus, dude... I KNOW you said there was a Revolver, you just didn't know it before the first guy pointed it out to you. I clearly opened my eyes to read the whole thread, that's how I've been quoting the dumb things you've said (rhyme). You even tried to argue it after he pointed it out the first time. So NO you didn't know, you just had to agree when you probably googled it and realized he was right then act like you "forgot".

"And i didnt know i was here to try to entertain you with jokes ;)" Really?

"But still there hasent been a Red Dead 2 ;)" So if that WASN'T supposed to be a joke, but you're now also claiming you DID know there's been two Red Deads... what exactly was this comment?

@deathlung217: You are such an asshole :) I admitted i was wrong/forgot about the first game, to the other guy. But still you had to open your negative asshole mouth :) And take what i said to a whole other level.

I hope there will come some real joy into your life, not this "joy" you probably get out of being a total dick to on the internet ;) Take care though

Avatar image for deathlung217
DeathLung217

@doublem-k: And you truly are an objectively stupid person. You never admitted you were wrong, you lied about "forgetting" about a game you'd clearly never heard of. "Take what you said to a whole other level" you mean call it out on its BS? There are plenty of things I get joy from in life, and this is not one of them. I know you can't fix every case of stupid, but sometimes the fact that people like you will someday (cause let's be honest, you're not old enough to yet) vote and drive in this country is just too much to keep my mouth shut.

What you don't seem to get is that I don't CARE that you'd never heard of some video game. What I hope for you is that there will come a day when you can say, about ANY topic, "you know what? you were right, I was wrong. I didn't know what I was talking about and you did, I learned something new"

TAKE CARE THOUGH :) ;) :) ;)

DeathLung217

@doublem-k: My god you are stupid! Go back and read what you said (seeing a theme here?). You called it Red Dead 2. You never said Red Dead Redemption 2. I never said it WOULDN'T be Redemption 2. I said it wouldn't be "Red Dead 2" and it still isn't, there will always have been a Revolver, and this will ALWAYS have been the third (3) game to bear the title Red Dead, which is all I tried to tell you all along. You still have no idea what you've been arguing about, and you're still trying to change what said all along to make yourself right. Glad you've been thinking about me for 2.5 months and that I was your first thought when they announced the game though. Have you ever been in a classroom with more than six chairs in it?

"I hope there will come some real joy into your life, not this "joy" you probably get out of being a total dick to on the internet ;)" Funny when the tables are turned and you (incorrectly) think you're right you can't even live by your own words though :);)

@doublem-k: That is pretty much the definition of "ignorance", proving once and for all what I have been trying to tell you this whole time: you are ignorant. What "shit" coming out of my mouth do I have to believe exactly? You've just been hurling random, generic, mediocre insults about me being "up my ass" and narcissistic, but about WHAT exactly?? YOU started this conversation over again to "rub it in my face" that you thought you were right (incorrectly). I once again proved you wrong and now you're just making shit up to insult me, and failing badly. Make a point for once, and actually stick with it.

Or, better yet, just give up.

@doublem-k: BTW, the insult is "so far up your OWN ass". I know it basically means the same thing, but adding the word "own" is just how it's done. "So far up your ass" just sounds weird in English without "own".

You're welcome ;)

Avatar image for deathlung217
DeathLung217

@doublem-k: Clearly you are, that's why you keep hurling zingers like "asshole douchebag" and "so far up your ass". Try those same lines two or three more times, maybe next time they'll actually work and bother me haha.

I know that "reading/writing english skills" aren't doing shit to you. That's what your problem has been this whole time. You can't accept... nah I'm not even gonna bother. I've said it like four times now. You're just wrong dude. Have been this whole time

Avatar image for doublem-k

@deathlung217: Haha you are really still so far up your ass. You dont seem to realise that your very childish and very ignorant, "reading/writing english skills" "insults" arent doing shit to me :) Giving me a headache hehe, not even close there ;) It just keeps showing how much of a douchebag asshole you are ;) Child kid, yes i am so bothered haha :P

Avatar image for deathlung217
DeathLung217

@doublem-k: One or two whole lines longer than your comment, yea, REALLLLL long haha. I guess when it gives you a headache to read basic English, even four or five lines is a lot ;) "(but i guess its hard to hit that face all the way up there in the dark;)" WHAT? My god that was pathetic, that doesn't even make sense! HAHAHAHAHA! You're right, I can't let the child or kid words go, when they're clearly bothering you so much that you have to steal them, why should I?

"and i got another long ass comment back, so it worked pretty well ;)" Gotta love that one. "I got you to reply, you suck!" Says the person replying back just as much.

Edit: ;0

@deathlung217: Well actually i was copyng you bcz i see you just cannot let the child or kid words go :) So i saw a chance of throwing it back in your face (but i guess its hard to hit that face all the way up there in the dark;), and i got another long ass comment back, so it worked pretty well ;)

Avatar image for deathlung217
DeathLung217

@doublem-k: No, kid, they're insults. Considering I called you kid first, and now you're just copying me, i think I'd know hahaha. And you haven't made one remark on any of my comments, you just keep hurling new insults each time without even reading HAHA. "so far you think that its an insult if i use different insults". Uhhh... what? Wanna try that one again? "Again with the schoolgirl tee hee" I guess I need to remind you AGAIN that when I say tee hee I'm just making fun of what a little girl you sound like when you say "he he he"? Dude, it seriously shows that you taught yourself English. Your reading comprehension is pathetic hahaha. Go take a class with a real teacher

;) :0 :* ;>

@deathlung217: i wasent insulting you "per say", if you pull your head out of you ass for 2secs, you would be able to see that i am making "remarks" or whatever you want to call them, to whatever last comment you wrote.. You are really far up your ass, so far you think that its an insult if i use different insults he he :) Again with the schoolgirl tee hee, so i am leaning towards kid :) But so what if i am wrong he he

@doublem-k: I guess you forgot the fact that this conversation had died almost 3 months ago but that you had to start it over again? There is no "reasoning" other than my own... these are FACTS. Three Red Deads, child: fact. I think you need to look up or google translate what "narcissistic" means hahaha ;) And no, sorry buddy, you didn't insult me. I'm fuckin hilarious, I know I'm a joy to be around. Just not for idiots who need to be told to when to shut up :0

Avatar image for doublem-k
DoubleM-K

@deathlung217: Again, you are only proving how much of a asshole douchebag you really are. Totally unwilling to see any other reasoning than your own. A pure joy to be around i am sure. You are so much up your own ass that you dont see that you got personal from the start pretty much. Oh no i didnt insult you? Idiot :) "Ability to stay on topic", again your head is far up your ass. You have a narcissistic personality ;)

@doublem-k: "Looking forward to seeing your long tiring "rebuttal" :)" I'm sure you are, that's why you wrote back ;) Yes, "off-topic bcuz it's personal", that was my whole point. It was a personal insult, but it was a really dumb one, so don't "flatter" (you're welcome) your own ability to insult people that much. I never got personal with you, I simply pointed out a fact you were wrong about. I never once made any comments about your personal life outside of your reading comprehension and your ability to stay on topic, which I think we've proven are pretty piss poor :). You yourself admitted English isn't even your first language... <@;0

@deathlung217: I am flattered (thanks for the help of spelling it;) I was pointing out, that you must be a total douchebag on daily basis ;) "Totally off-topic" bcz its personal, so what is it when you got personal pretty much from the start? You are just proving how much of a asshole douchebag you really are ;) Looking forward to seeing your long tiring "rebuttal" :)

Avatar image for deathlung217
DeathLung217

@doublem-k: Totally off-topic, generic insult. I'll take that as "I couldn't actually think of a good response to his point cause he's right, so maybe this will get him ;)!" And yea, most of my friends family and coworkers all seem to think so. But they're all smart enough to keep up, for you it probably wouldnt be so fun.

@doublem-k: No, it's just pure truth. Why bother listening to criticisms and corrections when you can just hide behind "I'm not a native speaker"/"I've never heard of that game so you must be wrong"/"No I know that's what I meant all along", and just never learn anything new or admit you were wrong? ;)

@deathlung217: From someone that learned english totally by myself, being teased on spelling or grammar dosent work at all. It only makes you look like a "correct others" douchebag.. Hehe well i dont really care if you think i am having fun or not. Im fine he he ;)

DeathLung217

@doublem-k: Yes, tee hee. I'm making fun of you saying "he he he" like a retard, idiot. I didn't go back and read anything, I remembered it cause I actually read it the first time.

"Flattered"

"Bent"

"But i havent, i just remembered this asshole "you obviously"", that one doesn't even make sense.

I wasn't "bend" about anything pal, just trying to correct a retard. Guess they haven't gotten to numbers in remedial math yet. Just give up.

EDIT: Shit, I almost forgot: ;) :). Do you really think if you add smiley faces after everything it'll make people think you're actually having fun and that you're not mad bro? Cause it's not working.

I am flathered that you took the time to go back and read all what i wrote 3.5 months ago. But i havent, i just remembered this asshole "you obviously", that was all bend over me putting a 2 at the end of a game that no one knew what would be named yet.

@westsiderz28: they've said a couple times theyre not gonna do a manhunt 3 until they can come up with an idea that would bring the franchise back to the quality of the first game. and considering all of their less successful franchises that havent been around for a while (hint: the last successful manhunt game was on the original xbox and ps2, although it was later ported to the ps3 and 4) received full remastered versions as test-balloons to see if there was public interest (bully), I'd look for a remaster or remake of manhunt 1 before getting any hopes up about a manhunt 3

the point isn't that it won't happen ever, just that it won't happen any time soon.

Gotta give props to Rockstar for designing GTA 5 with the future in mind, ability to add content. Easier said then done- the game engine needs to support adding content and they knew it'd need continued support long after launch.

Hate all you want but gta 5 has some great tech and support
