More about GTA IV Delay: Take-Two Execs Explain
Posted by XanTium | August 2 23:15 EST | News Category: Xbox360
Zelnick (Take-Two exec) chalked up the Q2F [feb-april] 2008 push back to "almost strictly technological problems... not problems, but challenges."
Asked whether one console in particular was the root of the problem, Zelnick diplomatically responded that "I know there have been rumors in the marketplace about frame rate and some other issues. We don't think it's helpful or beneficial to go into exact details of what the technological issues are. We're pushing the envelope on both the platforms."
Having reviewed a build just a day prior to the announcement Take-Two felt that there was no way it could meet the game's October 16th release date.
On the subject of the Xbox 360 exclusive episodic content--the first episode of which was due in March--Zelnick responded that it wouldn't affect the deal, telling analysts that "We're not gonna send money back to Microsoft. That's not part of the deal."
