So my personal prediction for a May release date for Rockstar Games’ upcoming Grand Theft Auto V was a little off, but the studio has just officially announced when fans of epic open-world action can get their hands on the game…
September 17th is the date that gamers the world over have been waiting for, and Rockstar sent out a message to its fans apologising for what many might call a ‘delay’ following the reveal of a second quarter 2013 release window, but the team promises it will be “worth the wait.”
“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.”
What do you think of the September release date for Grand Theft Auto V? Were you expecting it to release in May, too?
