Take Two Interactive Delays GTA IV
You won’t be seeing Grand Theft Auto IV in time for the holidays, unfortunately. The game was slated to be released on October 16, but according to Take Two Interactive’s recent press release, it’s not coming until their second fiscal quarter of 2008, which loosely means anywhere from January to March of next year.
“Take-Two is reducing its fiscal 2007 guidance primarily to reflect the movement of the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV for the PLAYSTATIONÂ®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360â„¢ video game and entertainment system from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 to fiscal 2008, due to additional development time required to complete [GTA IV],” the press release states. “The title is now planned for release in the Company’s second quarter of fiscal 2008.”
Too bad for both fans of the game and for the PlayStation 3, as the titles which are going to be released for the console will inevitably drive their sales. But maybe it will just mean Sony’s Christmas will come a little later than they planned.
