Despite showering the opposition in a truckload of bullet casings, Max Payne 3 only managed to shift 3 million units since launch across the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC back in May. Take-Two also reported that Spec Ops: The Line sold fewer copies than expected, leaving the company with disappointing first quarter results. CEO Strauss Zelnick is staying optimistic about the second half of the year.
"The outlook for our slate of upcoming releases is stronger than ever," Zelnick added. "Early consumer enthusiasm suggests robust demand for our extraordinary lineup of upcoming releases, particularly Borderlands 2, NBA 2K13 and BioShock Infinite. We continue to expect fiscal 2013 to be one of the best years in Take-Two's history." - Strauss Zelnick, Take-Two
Let's hope Borderlands 2 can deliver the sales that Take-Two need.
