NBA 2K19 dunks past 9 million copies
The NBA 2K franchise continues to set new records for Take-Two Interactive. The publisher announced that the latest version of 2K Games’s basketball sim, last year’s NBA 2K19, is now at more than 9 million copies sold.
Regardless of its accomplishment - as well as ongoing sales of Red Dead Redemption two, and player spending in Red Dead On the internet and Grand Theft Auto On the web - Take-Two missed analysts’ expectations for its fourth-fiscal quarter earnings (ending March 31, 2019). But 9 million is not too shabby, because it implies that NBA 2K19 is accountable for roughly 10% on the franchise’s total sales of 90 million. And that is significantly less than a year after its September 2018 launch.
As in previous entries, NBA 2K19 has a big set of single-player and on the internet modes. It also has a selection of microtranscation bundles that players can obtain, which include applying true income to acquire a lot more cash within the game (called Virtual Currency). Recurrent spending (which Take-Two defines as in-game money, downloadable content, along with other added purchases) grew 20% general for the publisher.
The NBA 2K series has been the most dominant basketball game on consoles and Computer to get a even though now. Its only true competitor, publisher EA’s NBA Live games, have failed to maintain up.
In January, the NBA and Take-Two extended their partnership, together with the publisher promising to pay the pro basketball league $1.1 billion more than the following seven years.
