BioShock Helps Rise Take-Two Stock

With the Manhunt 2 stuck in gaming limbo and with GTA IV getting delayed till sometime in 2008, things have not been looking good for Take Two, in fact their stock has seen a few sharp dips in recent weeks. Thankfully, it is not all bad news for the company as the release of Bioshock has prompted more than a 10 percent rise in their stock in recent days. “There’s a lot of excitement over ‘BioShock,’” said Mike Hickey, an analyst with Janco Partners. “This could be a huge profit generator for them. For people who were concerned about any liquidity issue, this game shows some promise for them. They could really surprise on the upside here,” Hickey concluded.

Bioshock will see it European release this Friday, August 24th, and the good reviews just keep rolling in.
