GTA IV: No New Exclusive 360 Content - EU Release April 25th?
Posted by XanTium | December 19 13:02 EST | News Category: Xbox360
Contrary to widespread reports, Rockstar has told Next-Gen that there has been no announcement regarding additional exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV content for Microsoft's Xbox 360.
A Rockstar rep told Next-Gen Wednesday that the content in question is merely the second of the two previously announced pieces of episodic content making their way to Xbox 360. While both pieces of episodic content were initially scheduled to hit Xbox 360 in Take-Two's fiscal 2008, the second piece of content will now be available in fiscal 2009, a delay presumably brought about by the later than expected release of the highly anticipated title, which slipped from a planned 2007 debut to a 2008 fiscal second quarter (February 1 - April 30) release.
MCV understands that Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV will NOT be released in March as expected - and will in fact be held back until the last week in April.
Sources close to the game's publisher have told MCV that the title's UK release will miss the Easter period entirely, and will instead go on sale in the final week of Rockstar parent Take 2's second financial quarter.
A Rockstar spokesperson told MCV that the publisher didn't comment on 'rumour and speculation'.
