Not long ago gamers everywhere were put into a state of panic when everyone's favorite analyst, Michael Patcher, suggested that if EA were to acquire Take 2 it would be in their best interests to delay GTA IV. While gamers were able to get through the first delay of GTA IV given the slew of holiday titles to blissfully pass the time with, a delay through the summer draught of gaming would leave a very dry taste of fear in everyone's mouth. Of course since GTA's release is so close a delay is comfortably impossible, as the title has already gone gold, but if EA were to get control of Take 2 and the Grand Theft Auto Franchise, a postponement of the most recent title could only be the short term repercussions. TGR has compiled a comprehensive and pessimistic list of the worst things that could happen to our most beloved, and Washington's most hated game franchise. If Patcher's words already have you scared, then you better not read on, as these paranoid machinations may induce nightmares.
