Take-Two Forced To Push "AAA" Title Out Of 2010
Oh, this is always fun. That's right, ladies and gentleman, it's once again time to play...NAME...THAT...GAME!!!
As revealed by IGN, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder has said the company will be delaying "a major unannounced title," one that was previously scheduled to launch some time next year. "We decided to move one AAA title that was originally part of our 2010 projections out of the 2010 fiscal year," he said. He wouldn't provide the project's title or any other further details, besides giving us the hint that it will most certainly be a "profit contributor of meaningful proportion." The first name that springs to mind is Grand Theft Auto V but it's unlikely Take-Two ever had that one penned in for a 2010 release, and besides, such a "delay" wouldn't exactly come as any big surprise. Next year just seems too early for that one. But there are two possible titles in Agent and L.A. Noire, although one could argue that both have been "officially" announced. We've known about L.A. Noire for a long time and Agent was mentioned during Sony's E3 conference earlier this year. They didn't say much, but still...
But maybe that doesn't count as being "officially announced;" I don't know. Anybody else have any ideas? Bioshock 2 is basically a given for February and Red Dead Redemption just recently obtained an April 27 launch date, so I'm pretty sure those are definitely out. Maybe it's just a new IP no one has ever heard of before, or an unanticipated sequel.
