GTA IV sells 15 million units

Meanwhile BioShock 2 sales hit impressive 3 million

Take-Two has released sales figures for key titles among its financial results for the first quarter of the year.

Grand Theft Auto IV has reportedly sold over 15 million units since its release in 2008, while BioShock 2 has already seen 3 million units shipped since its release on February 9. NBA 2K10 has shipped 2 million units and 2K Play's Carnival Games franchise has sold 6 million units worldwide.

This news came out as the company reported an increase in revenue of US$13.8 million, in part driven by sales of the above titles.

"Our first quarter performance was driven by the market dominance of NBA 2K10, successful launch of Borderlands, growth of our digital business and continued strength of our catalog titles," Ben Feder, Take-Two CEO commented.

"We are building upon this success with the global launch of BioShock 2, and have a strong line up of triple-A titles from our diverse portfolio of proven brands planned for release this fiscal year," Feder said, adding: "We will continue to ... maximize the value of our intellectual property by selectively engaging in strategic opportunities in emerging markets and new platforms."
