Take-Two, GameStop shares fall on GTAV delay
Shares tumble after Rockstar pushes upcoming action game into September; "nothing new" to share about Wii U and PC versions.
Investors are not thrilled with today's Grand Theft Auto V delay. Shares of Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive and specialty retailer GameStop tumbled today upon news that GTAV would miss its spring release date, instead landing months later on September 17.
At press time, Take-Two shares are down 6.05 percent to $12.27, while GameStop fell 4.15 percent to $22.69. A Take-Two representative declined to comment, while GameStop was not immediately available.
Separately, a Rockstar Games representative told GameSpot today that there is "nothing new" to share regarding potential PC and Wii U versions of GTAV. Rockstar Games cofounder Dan Houser last year said these versions were "up for consideration," though today's announcement left them out.
