April 25th UK release for GTA IV
Senior industry sources reveal massive title will miss Easter release periodMCV understands that Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto IV will NOT be released in March as expected – and will in fact be held back until the last week in April.
Sources close to the game’s publisher have told MCV that the title’s UK release will miss the Easter period entirely, and will instead go on sale in the final week of Rockstar parent Take 2’s second financial quarter.
That would be in keeping with the companys latest financial statement, which revealed the title would be released in its Q2 period – which runs from February to the end of April.
A Rockstar spokesperson told MCV that the publisher didn’t comment on ‘rumour and speculation’.
