"Grand Theft Auto V" Gets Pushed Back, Debuts on September 17

Rockstar Games originally announced the next chapter for spring

We've got some good news and some bad news for Grand Theft Auto fans. First, the bad: Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed. However, now it at least has an official date! GTAV will launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17. 



Although it's coming months after their initial projection, Rockstar reminds us that GTAV's Los Santos is the largest world the developer has ever created, so the additional development time is most definitely a good thing. Here's the full word from Rockstar's update


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.
