It really doesn't say much that 76% of their revenue came from consoles in Q2'19, as RDR2, their current best seller, is a console exclusive. It would be weird if the consoles were NOT their biggest source of revenue right now.
They have always had an ~80 - 20 split for consoles and PC even when GTA launched on PC after 3 years in 2015-2016.

See above. The PC release of GTA after 3 years didn't put a dent on the revenue that T2 generates from consoles. It still was 80-20.
#2 their debt is insane, even for a "diverse field" company. They cannot even afford to service the debt maintenance let alone make an actual dent in the debt itself. - Internet Stranger
