XCOM Suffers Delay As Take-Two Reveals Financial Quarter Results

Posting a net loss of $47.3 million, Take-Two's lack of July-September releases has hurt, but still exceeded the company's expectations with revenues of $107 million. Last year during the same period, Take-Two recorded profits of $8 million with revenues of $245 million, bolstered by the release of Mafia II and Civilisation V. The continuing success of Red Dead Redemption helped too.

With the release of today's Take-Two earnings also comes a delay, as 2K Marin's XCOM has been pushed into the beginning of the next fiscal year, which means that rather than launching on its intended March 6th, 2012 date in North America and scheduled March 9th, 2012 release in Europe, it'll be coming out much later than anticipated.

That means that XCOM could now appear anytime between April 1st, 2012 and March 31st, 2013. In other Take-Two news, LA Noire has proved to be its most successful game this year shipping 4 million units, Borderlands has managed to ship over 5 million and Red Dead Redemption has now climbed to 13 million units.

Meanwhile, the Grand Theft Auto franchise has now shipped 114 million units, meaning that it's all on Grand Theft Auto V to keep up the series' success.

No doubt, Take-Two and 2K Games will get around to announcing a more specific release date for XCOM soon.

Damn man. I've been looking ahead to XCOM forever! I hope it's not delayed to much because I was anticipating getting this and Mass Effect 3 on the same day.
