Rockstar has come out and said "Hell no! No delay for GTA IV! Analysts be damned!" Ok, not a direct quote, but I could read between the lines.

Hey! That squishy ball thing in BioShock you guys were talking about is totally ripped from Half-Life 2. In fact, about 80 percent of what I've seen of that game is taken from Half-Life 2 and then improved upon in some way. Having said that, I'm still really looking forward to that game. I'm hoping to put a pre-order in the next few weeks. It's gonna be sweet chickens.
