Take-Two has released its Q4 fiscal 2009 results, and included in the mailer was the news that Mafia II is on schedule for the first part of 2010.

However, like all good trains, Max Payne 3 will be running late and will not see a release until sometime during Q4 of 2010.

“Take-Two has a strong pipeline of titles that remain on plan for launch in 2010, including BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption, ” read the report. “BioShock 2 is on target for a global release on February 9, 2010, and Red Dead Redemption is planned for April 27, 2010.

“Mafia II is scheduled to follow during the first half of calendar 2010, and Max Payne 3 is now planned for release during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.”

The financial call is expected to start anytime, and we’ll be listening in for an explanation for why it’s going to be late.

At least this way, there’s a bit less on your shopping list for the first part of the year, kiddos.
