The company called the episode “terribly unfortunate” but continued to work on the game
At an investor conference held on Monday (7), Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Entertainment, said that all leaks of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 6 will not affect the development of the game.🇧🇷 In the same program, the company announced that GTA 5 sold more than 170 million copies, and Red Dead Redemption 2 – more than 40 million.
The company claimed that over the entire history of GTA 5, it has earned more than 1 billion dollars.
Zelnick told investors that the leak was “terribly unfortunate” but that the company knew how to handle the situation without disrupting the game.🇧🇷 In September, several videos and images of the next title in the franchise were released after Rockstar was targeted by a hacker group.
“As for the leak, it was very unfortunate and we take this type of incident very seriously.” There’s no evidence that tangible property was taken, which is good, and of course the leak won’t have any impact on development or anything. Similar, but it’s terribly disappointing and makes us increasingly vigilant about cybersecurity,” Take-Two’s CEO told investors.
Investors were presented with figures
A call to investors earlier this week served as Take-Two’s way to provide company details for the final few months of the current fiscal year. Besides revealing that GTA 6’s development will not be affected by the leak, the company also highlighted the financial success that GTA 5 has enjoyed since its inception.
That’s because the company claimed that GTA 5 has earned more than $1 billion in its entire history. At the current price, the number corresponds to about $5.16 billion. Unfortunately, Take-Two didn’t reveal how much the entire franchise has raked in since launch, but just the fifth title in the series already shows the high value the company has achieved.
Besides, GTA 5 is one of the favorite titles in a particular country. That’s because the game is the best-selling game in the United States for the past 10 years. Unfortunately, data for other countries was not disclosed by Take-Two in its presentation to shareholders this week. They also revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second best-selling US title in the last 5 years.
At the same meeting, Take-Two revealed that it has 87 games in production that will be released by 2025. That is, there will be almost 100 new games in just three years. Of these, 24 will be by Take-Two’s main studios: 2K, Rockstar Games and Ghost Story Games. However, the name was not released.
