Throughout the year, Rockstar will continue to support Red Dead Online with new content in order to drive engagement, Take-Two president Karl Slatoff added.
“Following the massive content drop in May, later this summer, the world will evolve again with the introduction of specialist roles, including tracking down wanted criminals as a bounty hunter, searching the world for treasure and other exotic items to sell as a collector, or building a business as a trader,” Slatoff said.
In June, Zelnick gave the clearest indication yet that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on PC.
During Monday’s earnings call, Take-Two also said NBA 2K19 has shipped 12 million units, a record for the annualised basketball franchise, while Civilization VI is “the fastest selling title in the history of the series with sell in to date of more than 5.5 million units worldwide”, according to Slatoff.
The Borderlands franchise has shipped more than 48 million units worldwide, with Borderlands 2 accounting for 22 million units.
On Monday’s earnings call, Zelnick also said the video games industry is in rude health and predicted decades of growth for the sector. While the publisher is primarily focused on organic growth, the executive said mergers and acquisitions also form part Take-Two’s current strategy.
