Grand Theft Auto V Moved to September


Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto V will release on September 17th instead of the previously promised Spring release. The delay is for the usual extra polish.

The GTA Team released the following statement:

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.


Finally, there you have it, an actual date for what will probably be the biggest game of the year. I know some of you will be bummed out by the delay, but I’m sure a lot of developers out there with games releasing this Spring sighed with relief when this news dropped. They no longer have to fear being overshadowed by Grand Theft Auto.

Just a nerd from the Windy City. I’m actually really bad at describing myself because I get all self-critical and self-conscious.

If I’m not tweeting I’m probably just watching Buffy or Firefly for the millionth time.

      Oh crap! Vita can’t catch any breaks. Sony should delay it a week or two. No one will get attention when GTA V releases.

      Wonder if they moved GTA to avoid the “games are too violent” debate going on in DC.

      • Some think it has to do with PS4 announcement next month.

    wow I am sick of this shit. Spring is Autumn for the other half of the world! I wish releases would state the month rather then the season which only applies for half of the world.
    P.S, Can’t want for this game, it’s going to be the shit! Word!
