Take 2 FY13 Q3 results: Borderlands 2 sells 6 million, prepared for next-gen

Take-Two Interactive have released their Q3 results for this fiscal year and they’ve made a profit.

Almost 20% of the profit was through digital sales which was up by 240% year-over-year. They made  $415.8 million in profit which is almost quite good when you consider they had made $236 million in profit last year.

They also released sales data for their games and also revealed some information about GTA 5, and said they are prepared for next gen.

Borderlands 2 has sold 6 million units, while NBA 2k12 did 4.5 million.

“Take-Two’s positive business momentum continued in the third quarter, enabling us to deliver growth and profits that exceeded our outlook,” said Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO.

“Our results benefited from the record-breaking launch of NBA 2K13, along with continued strong demand for Borderlands 2, the successful launch of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and robust holiday sales of our catalog and growing portfolio of digitally delivered offerings.

“With consumer anticipation building for the launches of BioShock Infinite and Grand Theft Auto 5, we are well positioned for a solid finish to fiscal year 2013 and substantial revenue and earnings growth in fiscal year 2014.”

He also added that the company will have extraordinary offers for next-gen consoles. They made their majority of sales on the Xbox 360, followed by the PS3.

Here’s their release schedule for 2013: Borderlands 2: Add-On Content Pack – February 26, 2013; Major League Baseball 2K13 – March 5, 2013; BioShock Infinite – March 26, 2013; Grand Theft Auto 5 – September 17, 2013; XCOM – Fiscal Year 2014.
