Take-Two boss squashes GTAIV delay rumors

For this week, no news is good news for gamers eagerly anticipating Grand Theft Auto IV. On Tuesday, Take-Two Interactive chairman Strauss Zelnick spoke at the 2007 BMO Capital Markets Interactive Entertainment Summit in New York City. When asked about the release date of Grand Theft Auto IV, Zelnick offered a status quo answer that was reported and re-reported on industry trade sites until the executive was inaccurately characterized as backing down from the previously announced release window for the game.

Zelnick today spoke with GameSpot to set the record straight and squash the rumor once and for all.

"I wasn't intending to be newsworthy," Zelnick said of his response at the summit. "When asked about the release date, I confirmed the previous release date we'd given, which is our second fiscal quarter. That's to say sometime between the beginning of February and the end of April."

That other article was assuming it was delayed because he wouldn't set a certain date.I think it will be released in that window of time but probably later than February.

I think they should delay this game till Fall 08...makes more sense to release it looking forward to this game so the sooner the better I guess..!!! o_0

Well, of course he needs to say what he says in order to keep investors happy. I personally think it will come out in June.

They were working on GTA IV for 2 years and they delayed the game another 6 months ? Call of duty 4 looks better and Devs worked on that game for 1 year.

IW started on COD4 right after COD2 was finished. So, it was more than 1 year. Get your facts straight young padawan.
