GTA 4 release date

Posted on 2008-01-25

We have a launch date for GTA 4. On April 29th you’ll be able to head back to Liberty City and cause lots of chaos if this news is true. It’s all based on the end of the tax year and other boring things pointing to that date. All you need to know is save your pennies and pop down the shop on that day. Hopefully you’ll be able to pick up a copy. We’ll also be reviewing the game the second we get our hands on it, so subscribe to our weekly Gamesweasel video podcast here for free from iTunes to get the review automatically.

Update - GTA 4 release date 1 day early - 24/04/2008

    I hope they are going to release the pc version shortly after the consoles one. Because I would hate to have to spend money on a game console just for the purpose of enjoying one game. Excellent one though it be

    if this gta does not match gta San andreas I will not be happy especially with the amount of times they have delayed this game. Reading the reviews it sounds good though (let's hope so)

    I hope all must have heard, that this gta4 game play is smaller compared to gta sa. GTA SA has 3 cities, this GTA4 is having only one, compared to gta sa play area size, but the graphics is what the key here, which will be eye candy i guess. Heard it in one of the forums.

    sadly no announced PC version as of yet.

    its not to say that there WONT be a version released,
    but ive heard that Sony have an agreement with the publisher/software house Take-two - which means they cant(won't) release for PC , the game when it is a flagship title for sony's playstation. exactly like San Andreas was delayed by exactly 1 year, when it was first released on Xbox and Playstation.

    its to keep revenue in the console market, i almost considered buying a PS3 when i heard it wont be out on PC anytime soon. then i came to my senses.
    Playstation. Just say No.

    (ps. i wont come back to read responses, so go crazy)

    Ok fan boys - put it away before someone loses an eye. It doesn't really matter which console you play this on.

    In truth, I'd like to be able to play this on the PC but as many before me have said, that ain't gonna happen for quite some time.

    I had a look back at the release dates of GTA 3, GTA:VC and GTA:SA. It's very interesting actually. First of all, all three were released on PS2 in either October or November (GTA 3 as November) - in each case around 6 months later, the PC version hit the shelves.

    If you take that as a guide, we can expect to see a PC version just in time for Christmas ^_^.

    I wouldn't be entirely suprised though if R* neglected to release a PC version - piracy is rife on the PC - I've even heard it said that some say that piracy is destroying the PC games industry. Combine this fact with the apparent financial difficulties faced by R* (what with them being sued and all), a PC release begins to look unlikely.

    Has anyone any thoughts on how EA's hostile takeover of Take-Two will effect a PC release? Will it make it more likely given EA's interest in milking the GTAIV cash cow and their string of PC titles? Will it extend the time we have to wait for a PC game? - EA are bound to restructure >_

    Reply to Harry's post: Looking at what he said, hes speaking as if GTA 4 is secured and piracy free with XBOX 360 and PS3 versions. Check online mate, already so many links available for XBOX360 version of GTA 4, and I guess PS3 pirated version will be on its way soon on the internet. I doesnt own any console, so I have to wait till PC version shows up for GTA4. later.
