Fresh statistics from the NPD Group suggests that the gaming market is still suffering from a lack of equipment. More specifically, we are talking about consoles.
Sales of game consoles and other gaming equipment in February fell by 27% in annual terms. In comparison, game sales sank only 6% to $4.67 billion.
In terms of specific games, February is worth highlighting with the release of Elden Ring. Despite the relatively niche genre, the new From Software project became not only the best-selling game of February and the entire 2022 as a whole, but also showed a very impressive result in general. It turns out that in terms of its first month of sales, Elden Ring was the second-best-selling game of the past year, behind only Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Why GTA VI with such success of GTA V? The game has sold over 165 million copies.
Against the backdrop of active mergers and acquisitions in the gaming market, the corresponding question was asked by Take Two Interactive, which is primarily known as the owner of Rockstar and, accordingly, the GTA franchise.
Judging by the answer, now the company is not considering the possibility of selling itself to anyone.
We are a public company and we are here for the shareholders. However, our track record of creating value as an independent business is amazing, especially if we exclude the last three months. We think there are many great times ahead for us and we enjoy being an independent company.
One of the main reasons Take Two Interactive is unlikely to want to sell its assets to anyone is the success of GTA V. The company said that it sold another 5 million copies of the game in the last quarter, so now the total circulation is an incredible 165 million copies.
Speaking about the finances of Take Two Interactive, we can note the report on the results of the 2022 financial year, which ended on March 31 for the company. Revenue was $3.5 billion, up 4%. Net profit decreased from 589 to 418 million dollars.
