Grand Theft Auto 5 Release Date Delayed to September 17

Rockstar has finally announced the release date for undoubtedly the biggest game of 2013, Grand Theft Auto V. While the developer had previously announced a Spring 2013 release window, Rockstar released the following statement on their website:

“Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.

“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.”

Earlier today, we reported on Michael Pachter predicting that Rockstar would make an announcement regarding the release date within the next week. While he wasn’t too far off on that one, he also claimed that the game would release in May.

Grand Theft Auto V will release on Xbox 360 and PS3 this year. There has been no official announcement yet regarding a Wii U or PC version.
