GTA Pwns the Universe September 4, 2008

Three pieces of Grand Theft Auto news today.

First, GTAIV has, to absolutely no one’s surprise, sold 10 million copies to date. That’s right folks – the combined populations of New York, Philadelphia, and Las Vegas could all potentially have played through hundreds of ways to jack your car or possibly save your life. With Take Two vowing to continue full promotion of GTAIV through the holiday season, expect those unit numbers, and the $433 million-plus dollars in revenue attached to them, to keep climbing higher.

Second, with that news in the can, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Take Two Interactive saw its third-quarter sales way up, boosted by *OMGRLY* GTAIV. Take Two’s net income for the quarter was over a cool $50 million, a heck of a lot better than the negative $50+ million they had this time last year.

Third, and why you care. A few sweet little nothings whispered by Take Two into the waiting ears of sandboxers everywhere: GTA Chinatown Wars out in Q4 2008.

Never! A game unveiled at E3 coming out in the same year as its debut showing? The devil you say. Apparently this is what they’ve been working on instead of the XBox 360 exclusive DLC Microsoft shelled out $50 million to acquire in 2007. I, for one, look forward to welcoming my new teeny stylus-controlled masters, er, pimps.
