Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) today reported strong financial results for fiscal second quarter 2014, ended September 30, 2013. Rockstar Games specific news:

Rockstar Games launched Grand Theft Auto V worldwide on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The title received extraordinary reviews, including over 160 perfect scores worldwide, and already has sold-in nearly 29 million units, exceeding the lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto IV on console in less than six weeks after launch. We believe Grand Theft Auto V is the fastest-selling entertainment release in history*, grossing over $800 million in retail sales during the first 24 hours after launch and over $1 billion in only three days. Grand Theft Auto V became available for digital download through the PlayStation Network on the day of release and became the biggest release ever on the platform. In addition, the Games on Demand release of the title on Xbox LIVE became the highest grossing day 1 and week 1 release in the platform’s history.

Rockstar Games launched Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and persistent online game, which is free with every copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

Congratulations Rockstar Games on such an extraordinary feat!
