Borderlands 2 Is Take-Two’s Third Most Pre-Ordered Game Ever
Yesterday, Take-Two’s Q1 2013 financial release investor call opened with publisher boss Strauss Zelnick calling the results “below expectation.” However, the outlook for the rest of the year was more positive, with Borderlands 2 pre-orders being currently the third highest in Take-Two’s history, behind only Grand Theft Auto IV and GTA San Andreas.
Net revenue for the quarter was $226.1 million, down from $334.4 million in the same period last year. Take-Two recorded a $110.8 million loss for the period, widened from $8.6 million in Q1 2012. Executives attributed the slow figures on low sales of both Spec Ops: The Line and Max Payne 3.
