Grand Theft Auto IV DLC due February 17

New episode The Lost and the Damned delayed until next year

Rockstar has finally confirmed that the exclusive downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV will be available from February 17, 2009.

The content will be a new episode for players, entitled The Lost and the Damned, according to USA Today.

Microsoft has made considerable noise about its exclusive deal with Rockstar and publisher Take-Two, with the content originally due for release this year.

However, Rockstar's Dan Houser hinted earlier this month that the content might not be released before Christmas.

Analyst Michael Pachter told USA Today that he expects the episode to be priced around USD 20 and sell between 2 and 3 million downloads.
