Grand Theft Auto 5 delayed until Fall, Releasing September 17, 2013


That’s the only thing I said when I read the news later last week that GTA V will be delayed until the fall season due to needing more development time.

Rockstar released this statement below:

“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.”

Looking at the information there, it seems like the oringal release date was planned for May afterall. It will be very interesting to see if this game will be jumping to next-gen platforms as well with the release date being so close to the rumored launch windows of the new systems.

t3chniq will be all over this game in the near future once we can get our hands on it. Stay tuned for more details here!
