Take-Two Interactive Software (TTWO) has surged this year as the organization conveyed impressive results determined by the robust interest for Grand Theft Auto V, the record-breaking dispatch of NBA 2k14, emulated by successful release of WWE 2k14. Going ahead, there is more development in store for Take-Two.

GTA V's success

GTA V had pounding success as it has sold more than 32.5 million copies work now and it expects to sell a lot of people all the more in the impending months. The amusement was the fastest selling title in the history of diversion products that grossed over $1 billion in the first three days. I feel this is an outstanding performance since the amusement is just accessible on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and is yet to hit the PC and new-era consoles.

In any case, Take-Two Interactive has to verify that it keep on performing great in the advancing years to keep pace with its peers such as Electronic Arts. Also Sony and Microsoft have together sold give or take 10 million units of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One. Then again, Take-Two expects more noteworthy sales from cutting edge consoles and Pcs that will be propelled in June 2014. Separated from GTA V, the organization's NBA franchisee is also doing great as NBA 2k14 was one of the highest selling games in the month of February.

More Catalysts

Take-Two also benefits from the presence of famous studios such as Rockstar Games, as it offers almost 250 million games around the world, spanning a scope of hit games till date. Once more, its NBA 2k14 has also turned into the fastest selling release in the history of NBA 2k franchise, that surpassed sales of 5 million units across consoles and Pcs.

Moreover, Take-Two owns the WWE franchise that can positively boost its sales in the gaming business. The amusement has performed better in the last year and surpassed expectations. The organization is also supporting substance, including a season pass that features several WWE superstars and legends, and thus expects better operational and money related performance in the progressing and advancing quarters. This is undoubtedly a decent strategy as extra substance helps gamer engagement to enhance, driving extra revenue and profits.

Consequently, Take-Two has released downloadable substance for several games such as Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2 and Sid Meier's Civilization V. The organization, so far, has released nine downloadable offerings in the past 16 months and is wanting to release a greater amount of it in the nearing months which will certainly have an extraordinary effect on its sales that it anticipated that will surge in the remaining quarters of fiscal 2014.

Conclusion

As far as what's to come is concerned, Take-Two has a robust pipeline for both new intelligent properties and games from its well known franchises being developed, including more than 10 remarkable titles for the following console era. The organization is also profiting from the starting success of the Xbox One and Ps4.

So, energizing times lie ahead for Take-Two and investors should keep holding the stock.
