Rockstar has confirmed a September release date for Grand Theft Auto 5, only a few months away from the announced spring launch window. The move will provide “additional development time”, according to the firm.
“Grand Theft Auto V continues to push the series forward in new ways; Rockstar North are creating our deepest, most beautiful and most immersive world yet”, said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games. “We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months”.
Such a move is not unusual for Rockstar. The team assures players that “there’s nothing behind the delay, if not the team’s desire to make the game as good as it can be. There are times when a team needs extra development time to make a game good and this was indeed the case and the only reason behind the delay”.
GTA V will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th.
