Rockstar announced that on September 17th, Grand Theft Auto V will be released for the Xbox 360 and the PS3. No information on a PC or Wii U title was given.
This date is farther than fans had hoped for due to the original release date that was set for Spring of this year. This is the first of Rockstar’s big titles to notÂ releaseÂ in Spring. Rockstar released a statement apologizing for the delay but it was needed because the game needed to be more polished.
The statement from Rockstar reads “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 â€“ we thank you for your support and patience.”
