GTA Release

Good things are worth waiting for… right?  Early speculation was that Rockstar’s newest Grand Theft Auto entry would drop in May much like many of their other titles. Then, rumors floated last week that a March release date was imminent.  Well, both were misinformed.  Today, Rockstar posted on their website the official date that Grand Theft Auto V will be hitting retail:

Dear all,
 
Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.
 
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.
 
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.
 
Yours,
The GTA Team
 
While disappointing to many, it’s refreshing that a developer and publisher is willing to push back its biggest franchise to put on that extra coat of shiny paint. Fans expect a lot out of this franchise, more specifically this game, and the extra four months will certainly contribute to the title’s overall quality.  Even if it’s already been in development for about five years…
 
GTA V is heading our way September 17th.  Stay locked to OnlySP.com for upcoming news, and check in with the comments and forums to let us know how you feel.
 
Jeff Scott
A life long Nintendo fan and lover of all things games, Jeff Scott, couldn't be more excited to be writing for OnlySP. When he isn't working the dreaded 9 to 5, he enjoys catching up on movies, great television, and oh yeah - family time when he can fit it in (kidding, honey!). He hopes to blossom from occasional to full time writer at some point. If he doesn't embarrass himself on this site first...
