No, GTAV For Next-Gen Consoles And PC Wasn't Delayed
Last week, rumors began to fly that Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC had been pushed into 2015.
This rumor definitely made the rounds; we didn't report it as news, but I mentioned it in a recent editorial. And while I still wouldn't care if it got delayed, given the immense fall schedule, it looks like the upgraded GTAV iteration is still set for this year.
A PC player contacted Rockstar Support for clarification and here's the response (via PlayStation LifeStyle):
"I’m also looking forward to the PC release, however this release date has not changed. Please see our support article, 'Grand Theft Auto V Release Date on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC' for the most recent information on this topic."
This could just be a smokescreen, in that Rockstar hasn't officially announced a delay, so customer service representatives can't say anything. However, a few days back, UK retailer GAME gave the next-gen version of GTAV a November 1 date. They later said it was a mistake but that date certainly sounds plausible.
For now, let's just assume GTAV for PS4, Xbox One and PC is still on track for 2014.
