Sales of Max Payne 3 and Spec Ops: The Line have not met the expectations of Take-Two.
As part of the company’s latest financial results, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick expressed disappointed and said that sales of the two games were below what was anticipated. Overall, the lower sales figures of the two games played a part in Take-Two failing to reach their overall projections.
However, Zelnick remains confident regarding the company’s upcoming releases.
“Athough our first quarter results were below expectations due to lower than anticipated sales of Spec Ops: The Line and Max Payne 3, the outlook for our slate of upcoming releases is stronger than ever,” said Zelnick. “Early consumer enthusiasm suggests robust demand for our extraordinary lineup, particularly Borderlands 2, NBA 2K13 and BioShock Infinite.
“We continue to expect fiscal 2013 to be one of the best years in Take-Two’s history.”
The big question is whether or not Grand Theft Auto V is also going to be released in the same financial window as the above games. GTAV, sadly, was not mentioned at all in Take-Two’s financial results/expectations.
