Take Two Interactive May Just Dominate 2013 Start To Finish

2K-Games-2013

2K Games or Take Two Interactive have enjoyed success in the past with enormous franchises like Grand Theft Auto, BioShock, the NBA and MLB 2K sports sims. The newest addition, WWE 2K14 has been given a October 2013 release schedule as well.

2013 is shaping up to be Take Two’s largest release schedule ever. We’ve already received sales figures from the 2K investors call that took place yesterday. Strong numbers were reported for two principal IP’s:

  • Borderlands has sold 6 million units
  • BioShock Infinite is nearing the 4 million mark

Those figures account for late 2012 and early 2013. Take Two still has a stable that includes some of the largest titles in gaming on the bench awaiting 2013 release dates.

  • Grand Theft Auto 5, September 17th
  • NBA 2K14, October 1st
  • WWE 2K14, October 29th

I can’t recall such a stellar and diverse release schedule in recent memory. Take Two’s 2013 schedule is comprised of sports simulators as well as first person and third person shooters. It’s likely that Take Two Interactive will post their largest profits to date with their 2013 selection.

Besides release dates, details of NBA and WWE 2K14 are few and far between. Something we do know off hand is that the NBA 2K series boasts the highest sales figures of any 2K sports franchise.  Here’s hoping that we see a strong showing from these anticipated titles, and that 2K games delivers on their packed 2013 portfolio.
