Take-Two to Launch 'GTA IV' on April 29


Video-game software publisher Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. set an April 29 release date Thursday for "Grand Theft Auto IV," the latest installment of its most lucrative franchise.

Take-Two had delayed the game last August from its October release date, saying it needs more time to develop it. Take-Two said at the time it will launch the game during its fiscal second quarter, which ends in April.

"GTA IV" will be available for Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3.
