All of these numbers ignore the fact that Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto 5 launched during Q2 2014. Take-Two is pushing these sales figures to Q3 2014, since that's when Grand Theft Auto Online launched. Grand Theft Auto 5 raked in $1 billion in retail sales in three days and has shipped 29 million copies.
Combine Grand Theft Auto 5 with holiday sales and Take-Two predicts non-GAAP net revenue in Q3 2014 to hit a high of $700 million, with the fiscal year ending at $2.3 billion on March 31.
"Take-Two is increasing its financial outlook for fiscal year 2014 to reflect its strong fiscal second quarter results and positive outlook for the remainder of the year," Take-Two says.
