Borderlands 2 has turned out, as expected, to be a resounding success, Take-Two has announced.
In an official statement Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two said:
Take-Two’s second quarter revenue and earnings exceeded our outlook, driven by the breakout success of 2K’s Borderlands 2 and robust demand for our catalog and digitally delivered offerings.
Our business continues to fire on all cylinders, led by terrific early results from 2K’s NBA 2K13, and the outlook for our upcoming releases such as BioShock Infinite is stronger than ever.
As a result, we continue to expect to deliver revenue growth and Non-GAAP profits in fiscal year 2013. Moreover, with Grand Theft Auto V slated for spring 2013, we are poised to generate substantial revenue and earnings growth in fiscal year 2014.
The firm also highlighted its digital output as a powerful business-driver, making known that online sales equate to $288 million, resulting in $10 million in profit.
