No, just the first few paragraphs and the 'Business Highlights'. Then I just CTRL+F for 'Grand Theft Auto' to see if there's any further mentions of specific details. The conference call you can just listen to and it's usually boring because it's all just corporate stuff mainly, but sometimes they get asked questions like about the release date and the Wii version for example so we sometimes get more info from it. Sometimes nothing.
Sucks that we don't get a release date... But news on the episodic (as vague as it may be) kinda softens the blow.
@Chris, do you actually meticulously read all of that statement? Or is there, like, a summary somewhere?
As Take 2 said previously, they could not safely narrow down the release date to a specific date, because they're not confident that they can yet meet a certain deadline. I would rather hope that the release date doesn't get released yet, rather than Rockstar delaying the game again.
Yeah, today was the first time I heard one of the conferences. It was boring, but got kinda interesting during the Q&A parts.
I highly doubt that, they said it will be released anytime between february 1 and march. and they're pretty serious about release dates, even though it has been delayed once, I'm sure they arnt go to delay it once again, (they might have to release it in march) but they would be losing more money. And since the game has been rated at least in australia, i'm assuming that the game is completed to some degree.
i think this game could be delayed again, i really think that.
Also concerning GTA IV was the confirmation that the first package of episodic content will be available on the Xbox Live marketplace by 31st October 2008. The second of the packages will come some time after that, but before 31st October 2009.
firstly, if they were looking at a summer release date, they would most likely say, gta iv will be released in our second quarter(or after april) but they said february to april, so there is no reason to believe they will delay it again, as it doesnt matter if people have exams around then, they will still make money during summer, and they would be losing money if they released it any later. They havnt even announced a firm release date yet, which makes sense to me but for some reason everyone thinks they will delay it again and they've already stated they will only release the date when they are sure they can stick with it. So, everyone should stop worrying that it will be released later than april.
I think they could be looking at a summer release date now, especially as everyone has exams coming up around April/May time, so I think R* might go for a June/July release date maybe.
