2K GAMES ANNOUNCES SERIOUS SAM II

Sam “Serious” Stone Returns to PC
and Xbox This Fall

New York, NY – April 20, 2005 – 2K
Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO),
today announced Serious Sam II, the much-anticipated return of Sam “Serious”
Stone to PC and the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft.

“Gamers have been anxiously
anticipating a full sequel ever since Serious Sam: The Second Encounter was
released back in 2002,” said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of
Publishing for 2K Games. “The frantic action and lighthearted humor of Serious
Sam really struck a chord with gamers worldwide, and with a brand new engine and
greatly expanded gameplay, we think fans will agree that the return of Sam has
been well worth the wait.”

“Our second generation Serious
Engine allows us to create characters with over 100 times more detail than the
last game,” added Roman Ribaric, CEO of Croteam Ltd, developers of Serious Sam
II. “This has allowed us to create huge, lush environments and even crazier
enemies than before, without having to scale back the gameplay in any way.
Gamers can rest assured that with the capabilities of our new engine, we’re not
only going to match the record we set with the first Serious Sam for the most
enemies on screen at one time, we’re going to surpass it.”

Serious Sam II will be released for
PC and Xbox in Fall 2005, and will be showcased at 2K Games’ booth at this
year’s E3 Expo. Look for the first details on the game in the June issue of
Computer Games Magazine, featuring Serious Sam II as the cover story, on
newsstands in early May.
