GTA 5 Release Date Announced
In what may be the most anticipated announcement of 2013, Rockstar has revealed the release date for Grand Theft Auto V. The long-awaited open-world title will hit stores on September 17, 2013.
In a post on the Rockstar Blog, the company apologized for the delay, saying,
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.
This announcement comes in the wake of an investor preview released yesterday, in which Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter predicted that the GTA V release date would be announced next week, and that the game would be released in May of this year. In some internal conversations, many of us at Game Front agreed with that assessment.
So, we’ll have to wait until September for GTA V. Maybe we’ve got time to play through the previous games before then. You know, for science.
