What Take-Two Interactive forecasts for fiscal 2023
For fiscal 2023, Take-Two forecasts its revenue to fall in the range of $3.67 billion to $3.77 billion on up to $2.15 of per-share earnings. It expects $3.75 billion to $3.85 billion in bookings this year.

We believe that Take-Two Interactive remains incredibly well-positioned to increase its scale and prominence in the industry, expand its margins, and deliver long-term value for our shareholders.
