Take-Two Interactive “Impressed” With Nintendo Switch Sales Momentum


Take-Two Interactive has shared that they are “impressed” at the unrelenting sales momentum behind Nintendo Switch at the moment, although wouldn’t be pushed for hints as to whether they have any more games that are destined for the plucky portable home console.

The company has published NBA 2K18, WWE 2K18, and L.A. Noire on the platform so far, and, moving forward, will continue to consider whether their projects in development are a good fit for the console or not.

“In terms of bringing other titles to Switch, obviously we’ve done a few titles already. We’ve done NBA [2K18], WWE [2K18], L.A. Noire,” Take-Two Interactive president Karl Slatoff explained on the company’s Q3 2018 earnings conference call.

“We look at this like any other platform opportunity to the extent that we look at our development costs, is the game right for the platform, what does the audience look like, what’s the install base? So when we do believe that there’s an opportunity to do something on Switch, then you’ll hear from the labels.

“We are impressed with the growth, we’re impressed with the units that have been sold into the market so far, so we’re very sanguine at this point, but we’ve nothing more to announce specifically at this point.”
