Grand Theft Auto V release date confirmed as 17th September

Rockstar has finally given us an official GTA 5 release date, admittedly it's several months later than originally planned but the studio believes it's worth the wait

 

Grand Theft Auto V now has an official release date of 17th September 2013 with the latest in the hugely-popular series arriving several months later than originally planned.

GTA 5 had been due to arrive in Spring of this year but the new post on Rockstar's website has confirmed that the game is to be delayed to make time for final adjustments and tweaks.

In a statement on the website the studio has apologised to fans asking for their understanding and patience saying, "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 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."

Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the most hotly-anticipated games of 2013 alongside Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3 and the new Tomb Raider title with Rockstar claiming it will be their biggest GTA game yet.

So far the studio has only revealed a few screenshots and a single trailer showing just a hint of the city that gamers will be able to traverse along with the surrounding countryside.

The game will feature three main characters all of whom can be played at any point with players effectively dropping in and out of their separate storylines using what will reportedly be a 'Google maps style' camera shot.

GTA V is due to land on Xbox 360 and PS3 with Rockstar saying they are considering doing a PC version but we'll have to wait a bit longer before they have a definitive verdict.
