In the latest fiscal report of Take-Two Interactive, parent company of “Grand Theft Auto” game developer and publisher Rockstar Games, it was revealed that the company had a good outcome in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017.

Take-Two Interactive was said to have seen a positive growth. According to CEO Strauss Zelnick, “Fiscal 2017 is off to a solid start, with first quarter net revenue up to 13 percent year-over-year.” Aside from its “GTA” franchise, “NBA 2K16” and the recently released “Battleborn” also contributed to impressive sales. However, the CEO admitted that “Battleborn” did not perform as well as they had projected.
During the recent conference call with investors, Take-Two Interactive also took the time to announce that Rockstar Games, the game developer for the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise and game “Red Dead Redemption,” “is hard at work on some exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.”
