Grand Theft Auto V delayed until September

Videogame publisher Take-Two Interactive Software has pushed back the launch of its highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V to September 17 after previously announcing a release window of (northern) spring 2013.

An official statement from Grand Theft Auto developers Rockstar Games reads as follows: “Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013 (US EST).

“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.”

Grand Theft Auto V is the long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s Grand Theft Auto IV and the latest in the iconic, controversial action-adventure franchise that lets players complete criminal missions in urban settings. Grand Theft Auto IV received critical acclaim and has sold over 25 million units.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to push the series forward in new ways; Rockstar North are creating our deepest, most beautiful and most immersive world yet,” says Sam Houser, Rockstar Games founder.

“We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months.”

Grand Theft Auto V will be released worldwide September 17 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. PC and Wii U versions of the game have not been officially confirmed.
