GTA 5 release date delayed

Rockstar have confirmed the GTA 5 release date as September 17, 2013, a delay from the the original Spring window. In a statment it states, “We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you”. They are not kidding.

GTA 5 release date now September 17

Here’s the full statement from Rockstar about GTA 5:

“We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you, but, trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require.

To all Grand Theft Auto fans, please accept our apologies for the delay, and our promise that the entire team here is working very hard to make the game all it can be. We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September – we thank you for your support and patience.”

Thanks Rockstar.
