Grand Theft Auto V Release Date Announced For September 2013
Rockstar Games issued today a communicate in which they announced the release date for GTA5. It turns out the game is coming in September 17, 2013, almost 4 months later than fans expected.
We have good and bad news, everyone. The good one, GTA5 has an official release date on the Xbox 360 and PS3. The bad one, it’s on September 17, 2013, way after the initial May/June prospect we originally had (almost 4 months!). Rockstar Games issued an apology for the delay and said that “[they] 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.”
Although they’re being honest and straight with their fans, this doesn’t seem to have calmed a very vocal minority who is now complaining in their comments section and in several Internet forums, webs and message boards. Some people claimed this delay had to do with the eventual announcement of an Xbox 720/PS4, but changing a game this late in the development cycle doesn’t seem that smart now, does it? Another camp claims that “Rockstar is just trolling” (say what?). What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section.
