Second GTA IV episode news inbound

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:31 PM MDT | By Neil
Rockstar Games just prepared the gaming media for a massive announcement by posting a very simple message to micro blogging service Twitter. The message reads "Details on 2nd episode of GTAIV downloadable content coming soon".

That's all the detail we have for now. No word on how soon they mean, but they do have a habit of making GTA updates on Fridays. What we do know for certain though is that it will be exclusive to Xbox 360 and launch by the end of October.

For the latest news as it arrives, follow both Rockstar Games and GTAGaming on Twitter. Our status automatically updates when a new story is posed to the main site.

I don't understand why they can't be ported to PC, I mean GTA IV uses Games For Windows. Windows, Microsoft, boom right there. MS could totally do it.

They could, but they wont.
Only if they get a pretty penny out of it.

But even unofficially, mods, The Lost and Damned has been cracked by one person and could be slowly converted as a TC for IV, but that person got on their High Horse and said they won't be releasing the code and bluntly told us to work it out for ourselves.

I hope it's still pre-Halloween but I'm not sure. The rumor on Gamespot's website from an anonymous Twitter was that it would be announced (as Blood and a Four Leaf Clover) and be coming out Christmas... this announcement would take place during E3.

@RYO_91, the game data has actually been extracted, but the guy who did so is refusing to redistribute it or something. Nor is he making any of use of it so I don't know why he really bothered.

Or something like that.

@RYO_91: The file compression is different between the PC and Xbox version, as well as the textures being encoded in a different format, one person has cracked these but is refusing to let anyone use it, telling us to figure it out ourselves.

So some guy managed to transfer L&D to PC but gave the finger to everyone else?

What a massive douche.

10 bucks on the lead character in this DLC being Luis Lopez
