I have to be honest, before the second Grand Theft Auto V trailer hit my interest in the game was minimal at best because I didn’t particularly like the direction Grand Theft Auto IV took. However, once I watched the GTA V trailer the game instantly became one of my most anticipated games of 2013. And the Citadel Investment Group must have felt the same way as they grew their investment in Take-Two by over two million shares.
The Citadel Investment Group now owns around six percent of the total Take-Two shares. The Chicago based group is owned by billionaire Ken Griffin who know owns a total of 5.5 million Take-Two shares.
Just last November another billionaire, Carl Icahn also grew his stock in the company as well; Ichan now owns 10.7 percent of Take-Two’s shares. In other words, the trailer for GTA V has generated a lot of support from not only fans but investors as well. GTA V has a lot riding on it, but considering how good the trailer looked and the information we received about the game recently I don’t see Rockstar letting us down.
