Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO) stock is falling on Tuesday after the release of its earnings report for the fiscal second quarter of 2023.

The bad news for the video game company starts with its EPS of -$1.54. That represents a massive negative shift compared to Take-Two Interactive’s EPS of 9 cents in the same period of the year prior.

Not helping matters is the company’s revenue of $1.4 billion. That’s nowhere close to the $1.55 billion that analysts had expected for the quarter, even if it is a 62% year-over-year (YOY) increase from $858.2 million last year.

TTWO Stock: The Outlook Doesn’t Look Good

In the report, a guidance update from the company covers its fiscal full-year 2023 outlook. Specifically, the company expects its losses per share to range from $4.22 to $3.95, alongside revenue of between $5.41 billion and $5.51 billion. That revenue would come in below Wall Street’s estimate of $5.89 billion for the year.

Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two Interactive, said the following about the guidance:

“We now expect to deliver Net Bookings of $5.4 to $5.5 billion in Fiscal 2023. Our reduced forecast reflects shifts in our pipeline, fluctuations in FX rates, and a more cautious view of the current macroeconomic backdrop, particularly in mobile.”

Today’s news has shares of TTWO stock seeing heavy trading. As of this writing, more than 5 million shares are on the move. For perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is about 1.9 million shares.

TTWO stock is down 10.6% as of Tuesday morning and down 40.7% since the start of the year.
