Grand Theft Auto IV Delayed to Second Quarter of Fiscal 2008
Posted by XanTium | August 2 17:26 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From the press release:


Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. today announced revised revenue and earnings guidance for fiscal 2007.

Take-Two is reducing its fiscal 2007 guidance primarily to reflect the movement of the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV for the PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 to fiscal 2008, due to additional development time required to complete the title. The title is now planned for release in the Company's second quarter of fiscal 2008 [note x-s: should mean feb-april 2008].

Well, with the 360 was getting the 'extra content' around April of next year, so atleast you 360 GTA4 owners won't have to wait as long... hopefully :/

Ken_D, Agree'd... I was going to alienate myself from the world the 1st week of GTAIV biggrin.gif

Well hey atleast in the end, GTAIV will be the best it can be smile.gif then if they rushed for october

I'm not surprised either, with a little over two months to release and they haven't shown much about the game. At least it won't cut into Metroid Prime 3 now smile.gif

Well that sucks. Games get delayed too often these days. They should just put the release dates out further even if they know it will be finished, maybe they can add some nice touches in the spare time they have or suttin.

But as someone said, at least the game will be 100% done this way.

I wasnt the biggest fan, but was looking forward to it

Gutted! this is my most wanted game. I'm not a Halo fan so this definately leaves a big gap for me. Please someone remind me what else I can look forward to.
