Borderlands shifted to fiscal '09, 'better balance' cited

As noted in Take-Two's most recent guidance for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2008, Gearbox-developed Borderlands will release in fiscal 2009 instead of fiscal 2008. The publisher explained that the apparent pushback allows for "additional development time" and provides "better balance" in the release schedule of its triple-A titles. Previously, Borderlands was dated for 'Holiday 2008,' which, if after November 1, would fall into Take-Two's fiscal 2009 anyway. Today's notice looks to be less a significant launch delay then, and more a tweaking of financial projections.
