GTA release May delay, but take-two interactive are market strategy kings



May 16th, 2024, is a big day for investors closely following their stake in Take-Two Interactive.

The company releases its fiscal report for Q4 of 2024 on the day, along with an outlook report for 2025.

Gillian Mercylin, an author at, thesolitaire, said, “Even though Take-Two Interactive didn’t perform well in the market during the end of last year, hope lies in recent strategic moves.

“With the acquisition of Gearbox for a whopping $460 million, the creative capabilities of Take-Two Interactive are set to explode. The possibilities may seem endless, but still, worry lingers.”

Perhaps the outlook of the May 16th report is already estimated to be in the red? The answers we seek lie in the historical market position and investor temperament.

Historical market position

It’s already apparent that the last quarter poses bad news for Take-Two Interactive’s shareholders, with an estimated drop of 15% in value. However, over the last five years, Take-Two had an average return of 40% of stock value.

Last year did not yield a profit for investors of Take-Two. However, in the grand picture, the company can show off its 15% average revenue growth each year over the last five years.

The share valuation of the company has not been great, but the stock valuation has been killing the competition. The CEO gets paid less, but the investors ignore it. One thing is for certain: strategic positioning is the name of their game.

The secret possibly lies in the perception of the investors. Investors in the video gaming industry look for what is to come in the future. With Take-Two, their highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto release, and the acquisition of Gearbox are the keys this time.

Grand Theft Auto delayed

Rockstar Games, Take-Two Interactive’s publisher of Grand Theft Auto, announced the release of GTA 6 with a trailer. Sam Houser, Co-Founder, stated, “Grand Theft Auto VI continues our efforts to push the limits of what’s possible in highly immersive, story-driven open-world experiences. We’re thrilled to be able to share this new vision with players everywhere.”

However, concerns linger about a pushback to the highly-anticipated game. When news like this circles, it causes alarm for investors. However, not for Take-Two Interactive. Almost immediately, highlights regarding the PS5 Pro release slated for 2025 have made the rounds. Bravo, Take-Two! Another crisis averted with these strategic projections.
