Grand Theft Auto 5 Delay Explained – Rockstar Wants It “To Be As Good As It Needs To Be”

Share this:

Last Thursday, Rockstar announced the unfortunate delay of Grand Theft Auto 5, now releasing September 17, instead of the originally intended release time frame of Spring 2013.

In an update on the official site, the team explained the decision, stating that “unfortunately sometimes such delays are necessary in all forms of entertainment, and especially in the case of a game experience as massive and complex as GTAV.”

“Those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they’re all nonsense,” the post continued to read, dispelling all rumors floating about as of late. “Literally the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be.”

Lastly, the post also briefly mentioned the anticipated reveal of the official GTA V box art, which will now “be coming out a bit later as well.”
