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.
With Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar is setting a new standard for next generation video games. Certain elements of development proved to be more time-intensive than expected, especially given the commitment for a simultaneous release on two very different platforms. We all recognize that perfecting the game is vital and I can assure everyone it will be worth the wait. We owe it to the game’s millions of fans, to our dedicated development team, and to our shareholders to make sure that Grand Theft Auto IV is a groundbreaking gaming experience that takes maximum advantage of next generation technology.
Today, Rockstar Games released a press release detailing that the launch for Grand Theft Auto IV has been pushed back from October this year. It is now scheduled for release in the fiscal year 2008 which begins on October 31st 2007 for Rockstar. We are looking at a delay of probably a few months for the game, although it still may be available before Christmas.
You're an idiot.
they are probably going to change the cop car colors,AGAIN! Grand theft auto 3 was delayed due to 9/11,which was bullshit.we could have had nypd color schme cop cars,darkel,school buses and children,but the sand blacks just HAVE to crash into the world trade centers.Couldn't they go crash into a oilrig or something instead??? :pissed:now they are delaying it due to pissed new yorkers and that devious bastard jackass thompson.
That's just the way things go unfortunately. Just be glad they don't rush it
Frankly it's hard to believe. They said that they were determined to meet deadline. They must have absolutely no choice.
Don't call Rockstar idiots. Do you reckon you could make a better game? They're just delaying it for a few weeks or a couple of months to make sure it's good enough - if you've been waiting years than a few weeks won't make any difference.
idiots i have been waiting years for this game!!!!!! aye peeps what do they mean by fiscal 2008??????

A bit like VCS was. I think R* learnt from that, and i for one am glad that they're taking the time to polish the game up ready for release. It's gonna be awesome for sure, and may boost sales, because it's 'dodging' the Halo release a bit. Though thety may not amke the christams sales, there will be more anticipation, and so more people will buy IMO.
I would prefer that it was delayed and became a great game then released in October and full of bugs and glitches.
Are you fucking kidding me mate? VCS had more glitches thatn any other GTA game to date. The graphics coulda been better aswell, considering those showcased on some other PSP titles. /rant.
Well, VCS deserves to be known as a high quality game. I loved its graphics and features. Not too many glitches either. I wouldn't be surprised if GTA4 was even better because of this delay.
Yeha babe...if this the date, i mean 4+4=08 its gonna be gr8.Rockstar North announced in Edinburgh, Scotland today
The official release date for GTA IV will be the 4th April 2008
