GTA for the DS Delayed till Next Year — Same with the DLC for GTA IV
One of the biggest announcements for Nintendo at their press briefing at this year’s E3 was RockStar developing Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the DS. During the same conference, Nintendo confirmed the game would be released during the holiday season. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that’s the case anymore.
During a presentation at the BMO Capital Markets Conference, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick said the ‘open-world’ DS game would be out in stores around the 2009 fiscal year. Sadly that could be anywhere from January 31, 2009 till the end of April.
It was also confirmed at the same keynote speech that the downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV is likely to appear in Spring of 2009. Just to put that in perspective — GTA IV will be out for almost a year when the DLC is finally released online.
