Oblivion will wait for the next holiday season

It looks like the rumors of a *minor* delay of Oblivion weren't rumors after all. According to Gamasutra, Take Two has released a fiscal report basically stating that Oblivion won't be released until Feb 2006.

In view of the Company's expectations of a continued cautious U.S. retail environment through the holiday season, and the inherent uncertainty in forecasting the pace of manufacturer shipments and consumer adoption of new hardware platforms, the Company has also reduced its fiscal 2006 guidance as follows:

-- For the fiscal year ending October 31, 2006, $1.35 to $1.45 billion in net sales and $1.15 to $1.45 in diluted net income per share.

-- For the first quarter ending January 31, 2006, $300 to $350 million in net sales and $0.04 to $0.10 in diluted net income per share. In addition to the factors mentioned above, the reduction in first quarter guidance also reflects the movement of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for PC and Xbox 360 from the first quarter to the second quarter and the movement of the Japanese launch of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PlayStation 2 out of the first quarter and the fiscal year.

Well, I'd say that's a positive development. The game didn't look vey polished to me, so delaying it instead of rushing to hit the Christmas season is a good idea.

Anyway, I checked the official forums, and here is a quote to warm up your hearts and donate something to those who are less fortunate intellectually:
"TAKE TWO AND BETH EQUAL DIFFERENT COMPANIES geez come on people THINK!!!"
