Rockstar has formally announced a new release date for Grand Theft Auto 5. Originally scheduled to be released this March, the game has been delayed to September, 17th, 2013. It’s still coming out this year, but we will have to wait longer to get our hands on it. The delay is due to the developers needing much more development time to make sure the final product that reaches store selves is a polished one. GTA 5 is a massive undertaking – so the delay comes at no surprise.
Rockstar’s press release states;
“The September release date moves the launch back from its original projected release window of spring 2013 in order to allow additional development time. The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world Rockstar Games has yet created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.”
