It was already rumored a few weeks back but Take 2 today confirmed that Bethesda's next-gen PRG will not be released this year. In its revised revenue and earnings guidance for fiscal 2005 and fiscal 2006, Take 2 confirmed not only that GTA: Liberty City Stories is delayed in Europe due to unexpected delays in final product testing and submission, but also that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for PC and Xbox 360 has been postponed from the Q1 to Q2 2006, which means not before February 2006. In the subsequent conference call Take 2 said that the delay was due to the fact that Bethesda needed more time to work on the title.

Erm... as far as I know, this is the first official delay there's been. There was a rumoured one of one week a wee while back, but it was supposedly in error.

Maybe this is just a cruel (very cruel) halloween joke? :(... or maybe it is like... Europeans only?

Wishful thinking, but I can wish if I want :(.

I am hoping this is only for the European release, and us US gamers will get it in time for xmas.

:thumbdwn: Crap!! ...I guess it is better delayed then released in an undone condition.
I wasen't going to pick up X3 but with ES:O on hold, I think I will as the game to give me a FPS break.

Man this really sucks... :(

Oh well.. hopefully they put the time to good use and really polish this game up good. Maybe they will make the combat look a little better too. From the videos I watched, it looked kinda stiff (though 10000x better than Morrowind).

Above all though, I hope they stick to this damned release date. I can excuse a game delay for the sake of making a game better but I cant stand it when they underestimate how much time they need and end up having to delay the game more than once.

Brain no function, sleep well without.

I read "oblivion" and "delayed" and immediately thought of STALKER, even though the game changed its name. :wtf:

This is worse news.

Well, can't say I'm surprised, since there were indications before. But, I don't mind it too much if this means they have the time they need to polish the game, if they can fix up the animations I'll be more than pleased. If the game still seems unfinished by then though, then that would be a bit annoying.

Wow, that sucks, summer next year. :( I liked the games that came out so far this year, but THIS one was the one I waiting most for.

:eek: No!!! They would never do that! We all know Bethesda only releases games completely free of bugs.


btw, isnt Oblivion one of the release games for Xbox 360?

This SUX!

I am sure it will be great.. If they need more time to work out bugs and so forth, for a game of this caliber.. i say go for it.

I bet Bethesta is taking there sweet time to put IN bugs into the game. Elder Scrolls just isn't Elder Scrolls if you don't get booted to the desktop at least 5 times a day.
