Take Two's financials: good news, for Xbox 360 gamers at least

Stashed away inside Take Two's recently released Q1 financial results for FY2009 is a list of games that’ll be released during the remainder of the company's fiscal year, which comes to an end on 31 October.

One of the titles on the list is “Grand Theft Auto IV Second Episode”, which is shown only as an Xbox 360 edition.

Nothing about the game’s storyline has, sadly, been revealed. But given that Take Two’s fiscal Q1 ended on 31 January this year, it’s reasonable to assume that the listed GTA update will be available by the end of October.

If you’re interested in the financial gubbins, it’s worth noting that despite over 13m units of GTA IV having been shipped between its release in April 2008 and the end of January this year, Take Two still recorded as Q1 2009 net loss of $50.4m (£36.5/€39.6). ®
