Publishing label Rockstar Games has said the latest in its Grand Theft Auto franchise will be released worldwide on April 29th, following last year's high profile delay of the franchise to concentrate on its multi-platform release.

Overarching publisher Take-Two announced the delay in August of last year, two months before its originally planned release date, with chairman Strauss Zelnick pegging the delay on its multi-platform release, saying, "Certain elements of development proved to be more time-intensive than expected, especially given the commitment for a simultaneous release on two very different platforms."

At the time, Take-Two said the game would be released in its second fiscal quarter of 2008, placing the game's release sometime between February and April - with the new release date coming in directly at the tail end. The title will be released simultaneously for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Said Rockstar founder and executive producer Sam Houser, "We are so excited to be releasing Grand Theft Auto IV. We've pushed ourselves very hard to make something incredible and hope the game sets a new benchmark for interactive entertainment."
