Rockstar Games have today announced that Grand Theft Auto V, the next game in the ever expanding franchise Grand Theft Auto, is to be released on September 17th, 2013.
However, this is a lot later than originally planned, four months later to be exact, in the official release on their website, they said the following:
“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.”
The game was originally scheduled to be released around May 2013.
There is still no information on the rumoured Wii U or PC versions of the game, which have been a highly requested since the lack of mention in the original announcement, both the PS3 & Xbox 360 were the only consoles/platforms mentioned.
