    Grand Theft Auto V Gets a Release Date

    Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto V will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 from September 17.
    The company has revealed that while the game was originally intended for a much earlier release sometime this spring, the delay was necessary in order to polish the game up.
    A statement reads, "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."
    No reference is made to the rumoured PC and Wii U versions of the game so, if you're hoping to play the game on a platform other than PS3 or Xbox 360, it looks like you may have to keep waiting that little bit longer.
    Given how Rockstar's previous big titles like Max Payne 3, Red Redemption, L.A. Noire and even Grand Theft Auto IV have all launched in spring, we reckon it's safe to say this decision definitely wasn't planned. It's a bit of a pain, but surely the delay is justified if it'll help the game live up to the massive hype surrounding it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    No problem. I'd rather wait a few months longer and get a good game, then get a rushed one right away. There are plenty of games to play until then.

    Exactly how I feel. They should take their time and make it the best GTA ever seen. And as you said, we have plenty of games to keep us busy till then.

    I don't get why people are angry about some kind of delay in release.
    By my understanding a game is delayed when the original date is pushed back. But with gta5 there was no date up until now.
    Why the hate? Sure, I was hoping for sometime in summer but I'm happy that we actually got an official date.
    Some people don't understand how difficult it is to develop a professional game - let alone a game of such size.

    No one here. For now I was talking about the majority of people on the Internet - see comments under the official article on Rockstar webpage and under their post on facebook.

    Couple months after Spring isn't so bad. This will give me some time to finish up the games in my backlog.

    I love Rockstar, but this is typical. They've spent a year jerking me off, telling me that they're going to make me climax in spring... Spring comes and boom, they unleash pics of nude old men. That's what it feels like.

    Yep me too , people complain if a game needs a patch but then bitch if the game devs take longer to prevent it , it is going to be on a whole new level , they can take as long as they like , GTA is one of the few franchises that has always improved there games and has not got a bad game in the collection , some people never liked IV but I loved it but agree it had plenty missing .

    Happy to have an official date but don't like the date as its close to when FIFA 14 will probably be released and I usually buy that the day it comes out

    I agree wholeheartedly. I was looking forward to it being released in a few months' time, but if it's being delayed until 8 months from now, then that is surely a good thing, since Rockstar can continue to polish it until then and make sure it's as good as it can possibly be. I have more than enough gaming to keep me busy until then anyway.
