2K's new XCOM FPS has been delayed yet again. The game will now launch some time between 1st April 2013 and March 31st 2014, according to publisher Take-Two's quarterly financial report.
It had been due for release in the current fiscal year. No reason was offered for the hold up. Traditional strategy effort XCOM: Enemy Unknown is still due for release in October.
The publisher's report also offered a few Max Payne 3 updates. The PC version of Rockstar's recent sequel is available from 1st June, with a beefy DLC schedule following after that:
- Local Justice Map Pack (DLC) - June
- Disorganized Crime Map Pack (DLC) - Summer
- Deathmatch Made In Heaven Mode Pack (DLC) - Summer
- Hostage Negotiation Map Pack (DLC) - Summer
- New York Minute Co-Op Pack (DLC) - Summer
- Painful Memories Map Pack (DLC) - Autumn
- Trickle Down Economics Map Pack (DLC) - Autumn
Grand Theft Auto 5 is still listed as "TBA".
It wasn't a bumper quarter for the publisher. It reported net revenue of $148.1 million, down from $182.3 million this time last year.
Revenue for the entire fiscal year came in at $825.8 million, as compared to $1,136.9 million last year.
"Fiscal 2012 was a year of creative, operational and strategic achievement by our Company," said CEO Strauss Zelnick.
"We delivered groundbreaking titles, including L.A. Noire and NBA 2K12, which set new standards for excellence; grew our revenue from digitally delivered content and mobile offerings; made substantial progress on our online gaming initiatives; and bolstered our already strong liquidity through a convertible notes offering.
"While our financial results were disappointing, the decisions we made position Take-Two for growth and profitability both this year and over the long-term."
