A House Divided Cannot Stand! 2K Games Announces Shattered Union

Gamers Asked to Save the United States by Any Means Necessary

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Windsor, England - May 5, 2005 - 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced Shattered Union, the latest innovative title from Take-Two's PopTop Software studio.

Set atop the smoldering ruins of a fictional United States torn apart by civil war, Shattered Union is an action-packed strategy game for console and PC. Gamers will play through an exciting single player campaign to reunite the country by force, or online in one-on-one matches.

"With their work on the Railroad Tycoon and Tropico series, the developers at PopTop showed they could create fun and exciting strategy games," said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing for 2K Games. "With Shattered Union, they're taking on a darker theme, but will bring the same level of quality to war gaming as they did to running railroad empires and tropical islands."

Shattered Union is planned for release in autumn 2005. For more information visit www.2kgames.com.
