Take-Two's Q3 financial results are in and Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption has done the company plent of good, about 8 million units of good. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has praised Rockstar, saying that they've proved that they are more than capable of pushing out and sustaining hit titles.
"Strong holiday sales enabled Take-Two to continue to deliver better-than-expected revenue and earnings in the third quarter. Our results year-to-date clearly demonstrate the Company's ability to translate its world-class creative resources and diverse portfolio of triple-A franchises into meaningful profits," said Zelnick.
Net profits were up 7 percent to $40.8 million for the quarter ending December 31. The strongest contributors for Take-Two during Q3 were Red Dead Redemption and the Undead Nightmare, Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, and Sid Meier's Civ V.
2K Games, one of Take-Two's game divisions, recently announced The Darkness II for Fall 2011 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. No word on Max Payne 3.
