GTA 4 Delayed To Spring 2008 | PS3Blog.net

As most everyone knows by now, GTA 4 has officially been delayed until Spring 2008. Spring, of course, means anywhere from March to June.

On one hand, this game is intensely ambitious, and delays on such projects are the unfortunate norm. Secondly, while the previews look amazing, they don’t seem like they are from a finished game. On the other hand, Rockstar North has a strong reputation for being extremely reliable regarding release dates. Also, they often develop in secrecy with very limited previews and press involvement.

This game is currently by far my most anticipated title. There are games with better graphics (CoD4, GT5), games with more unique concepts (Rock Band), and at least a dozen other amazing games coming out later this year, but GTA 4 was far and away my most eagerly anticipated.

Who was surprised or saw this coming? Who is disappointed or glad that Rockstar has more time to polish this one and that big games are a little more spaced out?

    I’m happy I can buy one less game this season. But knowing me It will just go towards another.

    One PS3 downside is the XBL content was suppose to be hitting around April next year. If that’s still on track then it makes the 360 version more attractive being less then a half a year away. Another point is Pratcher said PS3 is getting content on the disk not on 360. So either he’s talking out of his ass or we still have more to learn about this.

  • Can rockband really be considered a unique concept? Its more of an expansion on an idea than anything else.

  • Darrin

    bobeotm, you’re right. Rock Band is definitely an evolutionary step in the rhythm game genre.

    Well next spring should be amazing, especially if they can get the PS3 to $399. This is going to be a rough holiday though. Relying entire on new IPs (other than Ratchet & Warhawk) to sell an expensive system is a tough proposition.

    I think that ROCKSTAR is covering up the truth,so they’ll still sell as many GTA 4’S when it does get out,but I think the truth is that the E.S.R.B saw the game and once again,pulled their shit just as they did with MANHUNT 2,and now Rockstar can’t release the game untill they take some bad stuff out of it,,believe me,if that is what happened, than unlike with MANHUNT 2 ,they will not bring it to the public,because GTA is where there REAL money comes from,and if gamers knew that they were getting a delayed censered version ,of what it was originally going to be,,it would definatly effect sales,and TAKE TWO will not have that,,they have way too much riding on this project
