News: Both games will now miss their scheduled Fall 2009 release dates.
As part of their quarter financial report, Take-Two Interactive has announced that BioShock 2 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) and Max Payne 3 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) will no longer be released this Fall.
According to Take-Two, both games will now be released during the company's 2010 fiscal year (which begins November 1, 2009), so there's still a chance one or both of the games could be released before the end of the year.
The company stated that the reason for the delay was to give the developers time to make sure the games live up to fan's very lofty expectations:
Ben Feder, Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two, commented, ?The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one, especially with a product as highly anticipated as BioShock 2. We felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve. As a result, we will now be launching sequels to several of our strongest franchises - including BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption - during the next fiscal year. These titles will anchor our lineup for fiscal 2010, and along with other products planned for next year, provide a platform for enhanced financial performance in what we hope will be an improved retail environment.?
We'll have more soon.
