Take-Two has enjoyed a great start to the year, reporting its GAAP net revenue for Q3 2014 at $1.86 billion. This is up a massive $415.77 million from the same quarter of last year.

The reason behind this is because of some big-selling titles such as Grand Theft Auto 5, NBA 2K14, and WWE 2K14. GTA 5 may have launched in Take-Two's Q2 2014, but it pushed its results to Q3, because of the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online. GTA 5 has shipped a massive 32.5 million copies, and NBA 2K14 has become 2K's most successful basketball game to date, with over 5 million units shipped.

 

Take-Two's digital content sales grew 42% year-over-year to $132.8 million, but we still have no word of GTA 5 for the PC or next-gen consoles, but Take-Two CEO Strauss Zeknick did tease: "Looking ahead, we have a robust pipeline of both new intellectual properties and offerings from our proven franchises in development, including more than 10 unique titles for the next-generation consoles".
