Chinatown Wars release date timeframe set

GTA: Chinatown Wars - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 09:25 PM MDT | By rappo
Although the official release date of Grand Theft Auto's latest installment, Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS, has not yet been announced, news from the Associated Press (via PlanetGTA) states that the game is still on track for a winter release. Release dates are something GTA fans have come to take with a grain of salt, but this time the date sounds promising!

During Take-Two's conference this week, CEO Ben Feder mentioned that Chinatown Wars will be coming out during the company's first fiscal quarter for 2009 - meaning sometime between November 1, 2008 and January 31, 2009. More news regarding Chinatown Wars is expected to come out in the December 2008 issue of Nintendo Power, as promised in their November issue.

In the meantime, Grand Theft Auto IV has continued its sales and has finally reached 10 million units sold (to put that in perspective: Halo 3, the top-selling game of 2007, sold 4.8 million units). During the same conference in which the Chinatown Wars news was announced, Take-Two also noted that GTA IV sales have reached a total revenue of over $600 million, more than this year's most popular movie The Dark Knight!

Actually, Batman has made $949+ million worldwide.

But that's great that GTA4 has done so well!
