While waiting for any announcement regarding Red Dead Redemption 2, gamers seem to be content spending many more hours on the current best-sellers from Take-Two, Grand Theft Auto 5 and NBA 2K16.

The publisher recently reported on its second quarter earnings and the numbers seem to be more positive than before, though it ultimately is still in the red with a net loss of $38.6 million.

The good news is that the same quarter in 2015 saw the company post a $67 million loss. Responsible for halving the deficit are four titles: GTA 5, GTA Online, NBA 2K16, and Battleborn.

They helped GAAP net revenue grow by 13 percent to $311.6 million for Q2 2016, and it appears that in terms of microtransactions, GTA Online and NBA 2K16 have continued to make gamers fork out more and more cash for DLCs and virtual currency.

Compared to Q2 last year, which saw digital net revenue of $154 million, Take-Two has raked in $172.1 million this time around. Besides Red Dead Redemption 2, what other future projects are you most anticipating from the publisher?
