A website called MCV says that GTA IV will be released on April 25th in the UK, missing the Easter release period. Sources close to Take 2 have told MCV this information. All of this would make sense if you look at Rockstars latest press release. As we have known, Rockstar says that GTA IV will be released in Q2 of 2008. April 25th is in this period, so it is possible.

There is no fact that this will be the actual release date, so don't get your hopes up too much.

Are there any corroborating sources?

US should be same or close shouldn't it?

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

april 25th? ... 5 days from the end of the fiscal 2nd quarter.. nah dont think so. rockstar and take two wouldnt miss the easter release rush to get it. in my opinion it'll be in march 10-20th.
i'd like it to be feb 18th cause thats my birthday but you cant have everything can you ;). but nah i dont think it'll be april 25th. its a good speculation in that it can only be before that date! i'm pretty sure amazon and places like that had april 25th as their release date. but in that conference call.. they'd let people know once they knew. so i doubt they found out ,to the date, that it would be releasd the day after the call. i think if it was.. it would be an official rockstar/take 2 comment. not some second party who has " sources" in take 2 .

yeah totally, i feel the same to be honest.

july, august, september... i was soo hyped for this game. i was on this website every couple hours looking for updates, i watched the first and second trailer soo many times.. then onces i heared about the delay.. i just kinda lost interest. i wasnt really blown away by the second trailer, there was no news for about 2 months or something.. then all of a sudden masses of news, and pictures ( many of which seemed to have clitches in them! ) .

i know this game is gonna kick ass, but a 6 months delay.. 2 months closer to the release start of the fiscal 2nd quarter and stil no release date.

my attitude now is if the game arrives i'll be like.. "okay cool ". theres been so much hype about it, and so many issues with the game that i'll probably even more critical than i should be about the graphics and stuff. because to be honest in the inside of buiildings.. to me it just looks the same as san andreas and stuff .. with a lil bit more detail but the walls, the colour, the atmospher. .hasnt changed. meh i dont know i'll stop complaining.

but like warner said, they better get a move on cause people like me and warner lost interest a while back

It's pretty funny too since you're the guy who said GTAIV was dead. :P

If it was true, why would they have the UK release date before the US one. Cos they game is released there before here, so having the UK one without knowing the US one is a little bit stupid

They might just like it that way?

I just can't wait for it, if it's in March 2008, that's brilliant.

I call bullshit.

They wouldn't leave it out of their fiscal report, and then disclose it in an email to some random person. Plus, that email you claim to be contacting Take2 looks as far from legitimate as they come.

Theres been many of those topics at GTAF, forum members emailing Take2, Take2 does respond, but not with answers. Just take a look at this topic:
http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=304254

But for Warner, its a bit weird they would give you an exact month.
