GTA IV Still Due in Early 08Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick has clarified that Grand Theft Auto IV will still release in the companys second fiscal quarter - between February and April 2008.
Last week, Zelnick told a BMO Capital Markets conference that the company was not ready to announce a firm date for the highly-anticipated title.
This was taken by some to mean that the previously announced launch window - between the start of February and the end of April 2008 - was not set in stone.
But Zelnick, speaking to Gamespot, has stated that he only meant that Take-Two and developer Rockstar did not want to name an exact date yet.
"I wasnt intending to be newsworthy," Zelnick said. "When asked about the release date, I confirmed the previous release date wed given, which is our second fiscal quarter. Thats to say sometime between the beginning of February and the end of April."
