Take-Two Interactive has officially released its Q2 FY19 financial report, showing some impressive numbers with $493 million in revenue, as well as impressive shipped and earning numbers for GTA 5, National Basketball Association 2K19, and the recently released Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar had previously announced that Red Dead Online would launch as a beta in November, but failed to provide any specific dates for the launch at the time. "Take-Two delivered better-than-expected operating results, including growth in net bookings, during the fiscal second quarter", Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said. Obviously, that isn't as specific as we'd all like, but it does narrow things down a bit nonetheless. This is more than what the original game sold in 8 years of release.
This development may come as a surprise, as Read Dead Redemption 2 saw the single largest opening weekend in entertainment history; the title actually beat out Black Ops 4's $500 million revenue in retail sell-through during its first three days, weighing in at over $725 million. It's going to be insane at launch with many players looking to get right into beta.
