That Evolve delay came out of f*cking nowhere.

 

Probably for the best, I guess. Way too many releases in October already.

im having a good laugh at you lot sitting around the radio listening to this conference call with hope in your hearts.
You do know its just a formality to the shareholders right? Zelnick and his Take Two cronies drone on and one about nothing essentially, they present some cooked books about BS revenue projections, then call it a day and continue their stock fraud scheme while continuing to creatively restrict Rockstar for the sake of profit.

We pretty much were just guaranteed that it won't be delayed until 2015 and for several of us, thats enough to to waste five minutes listening.

Anyone with half a brain could have told you it wasnt going to be released in 2015.
Ah, good to know you're still a Rockstar employee. The only way to know for sure would be to hear it from Take-Two or Rockstar which we just did.
It's common sense, business wise. This is the last milking they can get from GTAV singleplayer until their hand is forced and they have to release the DLC.
I have to say I did have a good time laughing and reading the comments of disappointed n00bs who were expecting something from this charade. Probably more fun than they had listening to it.
You're acting as if the game won't be released at all. Like, you don't know anything...

Like, except I've been around here a LOT longer than you, and like, this isnt like, my first take two conference call. Like, I know more than you.

Mhm. I hope this means more room for GTA V, as well as more work being done one Evolve. Since, as awesome as it looks, I think it doesn't really have too much to offer in terms of game modes. This is from what they've shown off so far, anyway.

 

But hey, the public (loose term, since the invites are scarce) Alpha is still going on. That's good. Outside help is always great.

If they release it for example on the 23rd or 26th of september it would still contribute to both the earnings of the 2nd quarter as the earnings of the whole fiscal year of 2015. And it's also an outlook. I know the chances seem slim, but don't say it's ruled out.

A September release is definitely ruled out, in my view. The second quarter starts on the 1st of July and ends on the 30th of September. Take-Two predicted to make 95 to 110 million dollars in the period, that is not even remotely enough room for a big release like GTAV, even if it's just the remastered edition. It's still the game that is considered the biggest entertainment release in history, and it will likely sell millions on day one again.

 

I think September is extremely unlikely, and I wouldn't expect anything before October at earliest. We learned one thing from today's conference call and the financial report: the game is definitely coming out this year.

Andreas thank you for your reply, the key words that i like very much in your reply were: In my view. That's what changes the whole tone of a certain reply. What i do wonder is what produced so much revenue for them in the 2nd quarter. I don't think GTA V sold that much again.

Andreas, And if you think about it: 

 

The 2nd quarter ends on the 30th of september, they have an initial outlook of 95-110 million dollars net revenue for that period. July has just ended. What have they sold in the past month and what will they sell in the upcoming months to generate that net revenue of 95-110 million dollars. A Bioshock rerelease on Ipad? Don't think so. GTA V sales? Meh. Tales from the Borderlands? It will generate revenue but not that much i think.

 

Althought Tales from the Borderlands will be release on NG and LG and PC I don't think it will generate such an amount of net revenue. But that's my opinion.

 

EDIT: Tales from the Borderlands doesn't have a release date yet, so that won't probably earn that net revenue for them.

GTA$ will generate big part of this revenue.

There are still almost two months left until the end of the second quarter so it's not for certain if they will meet their own predictions, but it's very possible. GTAV and Online are still the main reasons for the huge success - but they aren't the only ones, since there are also AAA titles from 2K Games and catalog titles from both, Rockstar and 2K. It has been almost 11 months since V launched, but it still sells pretty well, and I'm fairly certain that it will contribute the most to these 95-110 million dollar.

 

Look at it this way: V made $800 million dollar on day one on the PS3 and X360, and it will release for three more platforms in fall. Do you think that the re-releases will make less than one eighth of the income on day one compared to the PS360? Take into consideration that this scenario is only valid, if the release were to happen on September 30!

Do you really think GTA$ will generate so much with all the glitches that have been going on etc.

And still for anything certain we will still have to wait.

Well we can't be certain about that, but we are talking NG atm, there aren't a lot of NG systems around, atleast not as much as LG systems back then. Anyways i hope it will be september, if not, oktober, if not november, if not, somwhere in my life. XD But yeah i wonder how R* is lauging at this forum about us speculating etc. A september release would make us all very happy. If it doesn't release in september, well, i think i've contributed a lot to support my statements in the last few months, so i hope you guys respect that and i respect your statements too. Let's keep it at that! :)


OH OH and my theory could only be possible if they released the versions seperately! So if they release the PC version in september and the rest whenever they like, then i'm happy! But that would be very selfish of me, so i hope for the best for all of us!

GTAO-The 2nd BIG Money Maker after it Parent Franchise,GTA...It generated $66ml in revenue for Take2 in just February alone,and 70% of gamers (33ml GTA5 owners) plays it or have access it now it coming to NG/PC,imagine how much it would boost in terms of Revenue...tbh GTAO was a great thing to be created in the GTA franchise,and it will be their cow to milk for years to come.infact the Dlcs and all for it,then the GTA$ (Cash Cards) is bought by many players even though it not forced upon and all them countless now-defunct money glitches.I am happy for Take2 and it two publishing labels-R* and 2k (infact every game company doing well this year) hope it continues in future.

They are expecting $1.35 to $1.45 Billion for Fiscal Year ending March 31st 2015.
 
Spoiler


Spoiler


They may be predicting V to take in over $600-700 Million in sales.

My prediction for Take Two revenue: (Based some off of previous sales)- 2K14, Civ V etc.

GTA V - $600-700 Mill
NBA 2K15 - $150-200 Mill
Borderlands - $130 Mill
Civ:Beyond Earth - $60 Mill
WWE 2K15 - $90 Mill
Evolve - $140-150 Mill

How much did they predict for V release back in september? I can't imagine them predict $800milion on 1st day and a billion in just 3 days, it would be interesting to know that.

What current projects does T2 have that could actually make those $95 - $110 million? Noting launched recently and unless that is all from GTAO, I'm not understanding how they predict so much money without anything visible. It's not a billion prediction but come on, unless they release some very interesting DLC's for multiple games I don't understand how they can predict so much money till the end of September, what are they basing these projections on?

I don't know, but IMO $95 - $110 million would be WAY too little cash from GTA V

 

I think GTA V will give at least $400 million revenue

 

That's why it won't be released in September

Alright, I think there is no point in keeping this open any longer. Cast your votes for the release date/month, guys.
 
Guess the release month for the PC version and Guess the Release Date [PS4/X1] for the PS4 and Xbone version.

 

Cheers!
