BioShock Infinite ships 3.7 million copies

BioShock Infinite has shipped more than 3.7 million since its release on March 26. The first-person shooter "enjoyed significantly higher first month sell-through than any other BioShock release," according to parent company Take-Two's fiscal year 2013 report.

Another 2K Games shooter, Borderlands 2, cleaned house throughout the year with more than 6 million copies shipped so far. Take-Two said the gun-looting sequel is on track to become the highest selling game in 2K's history.

Take-Two's income for the quarter which ended on March 31 was up from the same period last year, bringing in $22.5 million dollars as opposed to a $66.8 million loss in 2012. The company lost $29.5 million over the 2013 fiscal year, much improved from a $108.8 million loss in 2012.

Rockstar Games' contribution for the year was Max Payne 3, which Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said has shipped more than 4 million copies since its May release. They're planning something a bit bigger this year.

“2013 is the 20th anniversary of Take-Two’s founding and, today, our Company is better positioned for success than at any other time in its history," Take Two said in the report. "With Rockstar Games launching [GTA 5] in September, fiscal 2014 is poised to be one of our best years ever. Looking ahead, we have an extensive pipeline of next-generation and emerging platform titles in development, including both new intellectual property and releases from our proven franchises."
