GTA IV To Be Delayed?

Nothing legit here, but an article about why Take Two might delay GTA IV


"Analyst Michael Patcher has revealed he believes Take-Two will delay the release of its eagerly-awaited PS3 and Xbox 360 game Grand Theft Auto IV as it aims to improve its financial forecasts for 2008.

Currently due for release October 16, which is just weeks before the end of the fiscal year, Patcher said: "We believe that it is possible that the company will choose to 'throw in the towel' on financial year 07 by shifting the release date for Grand Theft Auto IV by a few weeks, increasing the losses incurred this year and improving the company’s prospects for financial year 08."

The Wedbush Morgan analyst added that a two-week delay would also be a "reasonable gap" between the launch of GTA IV and Halo 3, which "would actually help sales of both games"."

Delayed? Why?? Who cares about Halo 3? The Grand Theft Auto series is by far more older and superior.

It is now all about making profit for the company in the new fiscal year. They aren't really concerned about the fact that how the fans want the game on due time.
However, the new release date may flash at the end of next trailer.

Maybe it's just an excuse for it being delayed again, rather than saying it's going to be delayed two weeks before release and not give a reason, they saw this as a safe way to announce a delay incase one is actually needed.

This was posted as part of another article wasn't it?

Anyway... it's not even definate yet. An analyst believes it's possible there may be a delay. Perhaps Ash is right, so they have reason to fall back on if it does get delayed.

But it will probably not be delayed due to the production of the game. More likely because of shipping problems like always, or as the article said.

This was posted in the Crap Shack some time last week, boy did this rage me. If Halo 3 gets GTA IV delayed, I will be furious, seriously, it's fucking ridiculous.

Fuck Halo. There's like 8 better looking fps being released this year that will likely mop Halo on the floor. Halo sucks. I'm a 360 fan, and I hate Halo. Why should ps3 fans have to deal with this because of Gaylo? Much less, 360 fans who find Halo to be the absolute worst thing in mainstream gaming? GTAIV shouldn't be delayed for Halo, Halo should be delayed for GTAIV. GTAIV is doing something new with it's series. Halo is the same old bullshit.

Plus, they competed against eachother just fine in 2004 when they were released not a month apart.
