GTA 5 Delayed to September

GTA VIt seemed a little too good to be true when it was announced last year that GTA 5 will be released in Spring 2013 and it was too good. Rockstart have announced that GTV 5 has been delayed until 17 September 2013.Rockstar posted on the website the following as part of the announcement:

“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.”

Now some gamers have started to speculate that this could be due to the next generation consoles and that GTA V might be also released on the new consoles. Sony’s upcoming 20th Feb special announcement might just be the PS4 which will fuel more speculation on GTA V being a next gen or even both current and next gen release.

  1. My PS3 still has a lot of life left in it and to be honest a next gen console would have to be a darn sight better in both performance and value for me to buy it. For instance it would need to have far better browser than the one that is currently on the PS3 and being able to play your games with shorter load times and maybe even without the disc would be nice. However back to GTAV I am one of those who has been really hanging out for the game to be released and I will just have to be patient I suppose and hold on to the hope that it will be worth the wait.

  2. This will definitely be a big disappointment to many fans of the Gta series..but hopefully it will turn out to be better..!It would be awesome if they can release a demo right now!
