Grand Theft Auto V Release Date Pushed Back to September

Rockstar Games announced today that the anticipated Grand Theft Auto V will release on September 17 of this year.

This, of course, breaks the company’s tradition of late spring releases and puts the game out four months later than previously expected. The company acknowledged this development and had this to say:

“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.”
Grand Theft Auto V is the first true sequel in the GTA series since 2008’s IV. The game features three playable main characters and promises just as much mayhem as any of the Grand Theft Auto games before. Check out our in-depth analaysis of Grand Theft Auto V here.
