GTA V Given September Release Date

GTA V has finally been given its release date, however, it is not going to be as soon as we had expected. Rockstar have today announced a date of 17th September 2013, this is around 4 months later than originally planned, they had the following to say.

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

The delay is obviously disappointing, however, you should all know by now that these are not decisions Rockstar will ever take lightly and unless absolutely necessary. We at Rockstar Resource will certainly be looking forward to a polished GTAV this September!

UPDATE: The Box Art Unveil has also seen a slight delay however will be released soon. I imagine it probably wasn't the best thing to follow immediately after an announced delay to the game.
