It looks as if the release date has been pushed back until September 17th. A bit of a kick in the teeth to those who expected the release to arrive in a few months time.. Even more painful for those of you still waiting for a PC release. Rockstar are still being tight lipped on the currently unannounced PC release but if it were to happen, it probably wont be until late 2013 or early 2014 – Sorry guys.
Here’s a statement from Rockstar explaining the reason behind the delay.
“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.”
