September 17th will forever be dubbed GTA V day in my books as Rockstar Games has finally confirmed Grand Theft Auto V’s release date!
Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.
While GTA V was originally slated for a Spring release, Rockstar also made note on the delay:
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.
I’m on the side where as long as it’s an improvement over GTA IV, take whatever time you need. Just don’t give me another Diablo 3 flop where 90% of players drop off after the first couple months..
Who else is excited?! Let us know in the comments!
