GTA IV episodic content delayed

Take-Two has moved the release of GTA IV episodic content for the Xbox 360 to Q1 2009 for "portfolio balancing"

As part of its Q2 financial reports, Take-Two indicated that episodic content for GTA:IV on the Xbox 360 would be delayed from Q4 2008 to Q1 2009.

In a conference call to investors, the company said that the decision was made due to portfolio balancing, rather than development issues.

Take-Two did not give any pricing information for the episodic content, nor would it confirm or deny plans for a handheld version of GTA IV.

78 per cent of Take-Two's total publishing revenue for the quarter came from GTA IV and catalog sales of prior GTA titles.
