Take-Two: “We’re Very Optimistic” About the Nintendo Switch and “Very Supportive of Nintendo”
Publisher of the 2K sports titles and GTA, Take-Two Interactive, remains very excited about the Switch and its projected sales forecast.
The publisher expressed its excitement for Nintendo’s new platform during the company’s conference call with investors. When asked about Take-Two’s perspective on the Switch since its launch this March and its potential for the future, the publisher’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, replied that they expect Switch sales to remain great. In addition, Zelnick stated that their initial excitement has only been reinforced by the strong reception of the platform.
“We were excited six months ago and supportive”, he said. “We're excited now. We have NBA 2K and WWE 2K coming for Switch. The sales have been great. We expect sales to continue to be great. We're very optimistic around the platform. We're very supportive of Nintendo. So, the only thing that's changed in the last six months is our initial belief, has been reinforced by the early very strong results.”
Nintendo launched the Switch back in March of this year, and the hybrid platform has been selling amazingly well ever since. Take-Two will soon publish NBA 2K18 and WWE 2K18 on the platform.
