This week, Take-Two Interactive released its fourth quarter and full year results, showing significant annual growth, and a stronger bottom line for the full year.

Though the focus of the fiscal 2019 report was Red Dead Redemption 2, the final results for the year may say more about Grand Theft Auto V and the NBA 2K series.

The expectation was that Red Dead Redemption 2 would almost single-handedly drive the company’s profits as the game has sold an impressive 24 million units worldwide. Take-Two’s report surprisingly showed that, toward the end of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2’s sales had slowed, whereas Grand Theft Auto V and NBA 2K continued to command sales, thus driving Take-Two’s financial results.

Furthermore, new evidence has emerged pointing to a Red Dead Redemption 2 port for PC. Two employees’s LinkedIn accounts suggested that they worked on the highly acclaimed project’s supposed port.

Beyond Red Dead Redemption 2, Take-Two also credited NBA 2K and better-than-expected sales for Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V. NBA 2K19 has sold more than 9 million copies matching the figures of NBA 2K18 by the same time last year. However, most of this consumer spending for the franchise occurred in the last quarter – up 79 percent.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
