Us PC gamers just went through Take 2's fiscal Q2 report and it says...

"Fiscal 2008 guidance reflects the release of the first installment of episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 instead of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 in order to provide a better balance in Take-Two's release schedule."

And it didn't say anything about a PC release either...

It's a sad day for GTAF.

Source

NOTE: Take 2's fiscal year starts on November, not on October like most companies.

So, possibly October.

I'm not too worried about when it drops, but damn I hope they make with some hard info soon to slow down this rumor machine rolling over it right now.

They probably read all the complaints here and knew they had to offer something more than only missions.

EDIT: @Unoleian: Take2's fical Q1 begins in November, not October.

The more I read into it, and in complete context, the more it reads like the DLC itself is not affected, but adjusted for when they wanted to reflect the future earnings potential of said DLC.

Since original report above wasn't sourced, here's the complete package

IIRC, Q1 2009 is nov/dec 2008 and jan 2009.

so it could still be on schedule for nov 2008.


EDIT: i just checked, actually Q1 2009 starts october 1, and ends dec 31 2008.

so what you posted is actually old news, because the original release date for DLC was supposed to be august (Q4 2008), but was recently confirmed a few weeks ago to be pushed to about november.

dont worry, it isnt delayed any further

No, In the PC thread we had that discussion already.

Take 2 has it's own fiscal year. Q1 Starts on November 1st for them.

well...my opinion about why DLC got delayed till Q1 of 2009 is that they will be very busy releasing PC version of GTA4 thats why they will have no time for DLC lol.gif but thats just my 5 cents...

They're doing it for bigger Christmas sales.

Man, by the time it's all said and done GTA IV might sale over 15 million.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Mind you, the DLC might be improved over what we would have got in August; just like the delay of the game, it actually worked out better for everyone.

I did; but the medics put the pieces back together. I almost imploded this time, but thankfully the medication they gave me works wonders! alien.gif

I waited for IV to come out but I won't be doing no childish count-downs for DLC or any game anymore like I did for IV.

Neither will I get my hopes up too high.

I'm happy with IV but at the same time I want to stay on the safe-side because R* is full of sh*t with postin their flase AD's and features that never show up in the real game.

The admin should be more accurate in his post. There is no proof of new weapons and new multiplayer modes other than a bunch of speculation. He should post what is actually true... the board is going to erupt in flames when they find out it's really just added missions and characters, as explicitly stated by Lazlow in his interview.

I guess it's really hard for people to f*cking pay attention, isn't it? You would think the admin would know what he's talking about.

Actually, it's never Rockstar. They give previews of their games, and magazine articles feel it's their duty to speculate the hell out of it, and make all sorts of wild assumptions about what they think will be in the game. So when it finally comes, everyone's disappointed tounge.gif

No... its Rockstar telling journalists things like "No wasted space" and "A lot of interiors" as well as "No loading times". And "Shaping your own destiny"? What the f*ck? Most of the stuff that was promised came straight from the mouth of either Houser or whoever was presenting the demo. Don't go blame people when it's the company themselves that lied.
