GTA4 Officially delayed untill April 2008

Take-Two is reducing its fiscal 2007 guidance primarily to reflect the movement of the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV for the PLAYSTATION®3 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. Additionally, Take-Two is updating third quarter and fiscal year 2007 guidance to reflect the movement of Manhunt 2 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system and the Wii out of the third quarter and the fiscal year.

"We're disappointed to announce the decision that we made to delay GTV IV. Clearly we're not happy. It would've been even more disappointing to deliver anything that was anything less than a full expression of the GTA series at its best...The reason that it's being delayed is almost strictly...technical challenges."

Wow, so much for Microsoft's "Perfect Storm" campaign.

sonarus3854d ago

hahaha was gonna say the exact same thing. I am happy its being delayed though the game dosent seem to have enought hype. Maybe it will be better later

i Shank u3854d ago

im happy also that it got delayed. theres plenty of good games to go around, its all good when we have mercenaries 2 to play. that'll be the sandbox champ this fall now

Does MS get some type of interest payment paid back to them on that 50 million?

Jeremy Gerard3854d ago

I think it is being delayed because of the PS3, I think they need time to catch up the PS3 version with the 360 version.

dachiefsman3854d ago

@jeremy: on what grounds do you base that opinion

@marine life: here is a bubble....I was laughing my ass off

MarioFromTexas3854d ago

by the time that extra content comes out no body would be playing GT4, sux to be M$ right now

boodybandit3854d ago

Yeah Jeremy Gerard Rockstar is going to delay the 360 version because of the PS3 after MS just gave them $50 million DOLLARS! They would walk the version in the bare feet on broken glass to MS if the game was ready.

ericbs3854d ago

I'm happy with it. We need some heavy hitters to look forward to in 08. With such a packed fall line-up, I won't be surprised to see games being delayed to 08 (see Splinter Cell: Conviction, and now GTA IV). I can get the games i want without worrying about beating all the AAA games this gen in one season(and breaking the bank :P).

Ducks for cover from the incoming fanboys bull...Call me when it over

Kokoro3854d ago

What is the matter. I was so anticipating this title. But knowing what can go on in the development of a game, I understand fully. Good luck RockStar. We are still packed for the fall. More people will play (and enjoy) next year

ER1X3854d ago

I think beat me too it by about 10 minutes. :(
