GTA IV date still what it was

Between Feb and end of April.

Excellently-named Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick has rebuked news organisations like this rubbish one for reporting that Grand Theft Auto IV's release date is more up in the air than it actually is.

"I wasn't intending to be newsworthy," Zelnick told GameSpot of his comments last week. "When asked about the release date, I confirmed the previous release date we'd given, which is our second fiscal quarter. That's to say sometime between the beginning of February and the end of April."

Confusion apparently arose because the question he was asked specifically referred to a "firm" release date equivalent to the old one in late October, but Zelnick's response was widely reported outside that context, giving the impression that the game was no longer destined for the period quoted above.
