Friday Flame Wars: GTA V Delay A Government Conspiracy!
We were all a bit disappointed by yesterday’s news that Grand Theft Auto V is arriving a bit later than expected – nearly 6 months later, in fact. We will have to wait until September 17th to return to Los Santos. Sure, the delay might be just the ticket to ensure we don’t end up with something rushed out, half-assed, ruined, essentially, just to meet an arbitrary quarterly earnings report.
But what if big brother is to blame?!?!?
That’s right kids, there are theories making their way around the internet – you can search for them yourselves – that Rockstar and Take-Two actually delayed the game because – GASP – the Government pressured them to do so. Supposedly, one of two things happened:
1) After the Biden meeting, and in light of the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook, Take-Two/Rockstar felt that releasing GTA V in spring would come with a serious dose of too soon.
2) Teh Govermint somehow put serious pressure on them to delay. What pressure? Who knows! But, says the theory, Take-Two and Rockstar were forced to buckle by delaying the game.
Is it true? It might be! It might not be! Really, it’s not for us to say whether or not this ridiculous theory is plausible, anyway. Because Game Front has also bowed to government pressure and we don’t want to be [REDACTED]. So instead, we put it to you, Game Fronters. Does this theory have legs? Is it batshit insane? Head now to comments and let the flaming begin. And don’t forget to be rude and irrational as possible.
