Rockstar On GTAV Delay: Conspiracy Theories Are Off Base
All you conspiracy theorists, calm down. There is no secret ulterior motive behind the Grand Theft Auto V delay.
After Rockstar delayed the launch of Grand Theft Auto V until September 17, the rumors and speculation began to fly. Maybe it wasn't just about needing extra time; maybe Rockstar and Take-Two pushed it back for other, deeper reasons...
But the developer says that despite the headline-making quality of such ideas, the fact remains that they simply want to make the best game possible. As they clarified at their official blog:
"To those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they’re all nonsense – literally the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be."
I'm willing to believe them. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see GTAV end up on a next-gen console, either. Can you imagine it releasing as a launch title for the PS4...? Good God.
