Last night's Take-Two financial report has thrown up a few interesting titbits of news. In addition to the XCOM FPS delay noted yesterday, the publisher has also revealed healthy sales for Max Payne 3 and a firm release date for NBA 2K14.
According to the report, Max Payne 3 shipped a whopping 3 million copies during launch on consoles. While not necessarily a reflection of sales, that’s a healthy number and good news for a company that recorded a $107.7 loss for FY 2012.
“Fiscal 2013 kicked off with the successful launch of Max Payne 3,” said CEO and chairman Strauss Zelnick, “which received outstanding reviews and promises to be another hit for Rockstar Games.
“We have a fantastic lineup of upcoming releases for the balance of the year and the strongest development pipeline in the company’s history. ”
Take-Two will be hoping that one of those titles is NBA 2K13. The report also put a firm date on the licensed basketball sim. It’s confirmed for October 2nd, 2012.
