GTA IV's downloadable content delayed as well?

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 09:36 PM MDT | By zombienm
In a recent interview with Variety, Dan Houser, vice president and co-founder of Rockstar, has hinted at a possible delay of the downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of GTA IV. The DLC has been long slated for a release later this year, but it could now be early 2009 before it's ready. This follows a well recognized trend in GTA's long history of game delays.

He's also said that a price and definite release date could be announced in a few weeks. For more, check out the article over at GameSpot or the interview with Variety.

It's getting to the point that I'm not really interested, with Mirror's Edge, Fallout, and all the other great games coming out, not to mention all the Rock Band DLC, this'll have to be amazing. Really hope it's not just some new missions and that's it.

I'm sure Rockstar will deliver, I just hope it's mind blowing so I get excited about the series again. I haven't played GTA IV in a few months now, and I'm one of those people who checked this site every day when a GTA game was on the horizon, since before Vice City. I own all of them, including the three portable versions (I skipped the original Gameboy ones), so I would consider myself a big fan.

Anyway, I'm hoping this delay, if there is one, will lead to one of two situations: One, that it's either so amazing and of such a high quality that I have enough interest in it to put the aforementioned games on the shelf, or two, that it comes out during a time where there aren't four great releases a week. It's getting pricey.

Don't worry, I, as with many others, are in the same boat as you.

Hmm, well game companies knock out DLC all the time, Rockstar keep touting that it's something big, so for all this time and delay, IT BETTER BE! I swear, if it's just a few extra missions and cars or some crap then Rockstar will look like some crappy amateur company. However, if it's something like a whole new storyline, cars, music, etc set in Liberty City, and they charge for it, maybe then it would be worth it and make sense why it's taking soo damn long.

Ash is on the right track. It's been over 7 months. 7 whole months. Freakin' jesus, I definitely buy it on demand, like right when it comes out. I'll have to read reviews and all the details about it. I don't wanna get it and then only get the ability to drive a taxi for customers.
And god damn, they could probably add an island and a bunch of more missions.

Rockstar is actually... disappointing me at the moment.
