“Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013,” Rockstar Games wrote on the studio’s blog.
“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,” elaborated the team behind arguably the most anticipated game in 2013. “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,” concluded the GTA Team.
GTA V was officially announced for only PS3 and Xbox 360. Rockstar hasn’t given any update on PC plans.
