Red Dead Redemption and Mafia II slip to fiscal 2010

Take Two have announced they’ve delayed the release of Red Dead Redemption and Mafia II from the fourth quarter of 2009s fiscal into the first half of fiscal 2010 – fiscal year 2010 starts Nov 1st 2009.

Both games are follow-ups to top seller from last gen for the company – Red Dead Revolver which hit in 2004 and Mafia from 2002 (2004 on consoles).

Both games are sandbox titles in the GTA-mold, albeit with their own eccentricities related to their unique time-periods .
