Grand Theft Auto V Pushed Back, Now Set For September
Oh, calm down. You can wait, can't you?
Rockstar Games has finally nailed down a solidified release date for what many claim to be the most anticipated title of 2013. As announced over at the company's blog, Grand Theft Auto V is now slated to hit on September 17. Yes, that's technically a delay; Rockstar says they need the extra time for a few more coats of polish.
"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."
There was no mention of the PC or Wii U versions of the game, although Rockstar has previously said both are "up for consideration." September might be an ideal release window for GTAV, as we haven't quite hit the fall stride just yet and the competition might be minimal. Besides, it's GTA...doesn't matter when it launches, it's gonna be pretty huge.
