GTA IV sales bolster Take-Two

Profits up

Announcing their second-quarter financial results today, Take-Two reveal that Grand Theft Auto IV has now shipped 11 million copies, with a whopping 8.5 million sales amassed since the game's launch.

Take-Two also told investors that sales of BioShock have now passed 2.2 million copies, which we think counts as more good news.

Net profit for the quarter, which ended on April 30th, was 98.2 million USD. Revenue was also up 160% on the year earlier.

Finally, we also hear that GTA IV accounted for 78% of the publisher's sales during quarter-two.
