Take Two Financials and Max Payne 3 Date

Take-Two Interactive announces preliminary revenue and earnings results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended October 31, 2009. They are revising previous estimations downward "due to several factors, the largest being the performance of its Major League Baseball titles in the fourth quarter." They also say "Max Payne 3 is now planned for release during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010," which we are seeing reported as a delay, but Take Two announced the shooter sequel had slipped into their fiscal 2010 over the summer. Take Two's fourth Quarter 2010 will end on October 31, 2010. Also, Joystiq quotes company chairman Strauss Zelnick from Take Two's earnings conference call saying Borderlands is "showing every sign of becoming an important, long-term franchise."
