Although it was rumored that the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series would be released this spring sometime, Rockstar has officially announced, via a statement on their site today, that GTA V will be released on September 17th, 2013.
Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.
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.
Given the epidemic of unfinished games that have been released and rely on day or week one patches over the past while, it’s nice to see a company say “Hey know what? We need a bit more time. Sorry.”
Kudos. Take your time and make it awesome.
