GTA 5 Release Date

The final GTA 5 release date has been announced by Rockstar Games this week. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 release of the next big open world action-adventure game has been delayed from Spring 2013 to September 17th, 2013 worldwide!

Here’s the statement about the delay from the GTA Team:

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • “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.”

    How about Grand Theft Auto 5 coming to other systems?

    Apparently developer Rockstar Games is considering a release for the PC and Wii U, but that’s not been officially announced yet. The PC version of GTA 4 arrived 7 months after the console versions, so don’t expect GTA 5 there until 2014.

    The late 2013 release has spurred rumors that an up-scaled version of GTA 5 could be made available for the tentatively titled Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 next-gen consoles, which are set to arrive in Fall 2013. That’s not the official reason for the delay, though, with Rockstar Games firmly stating that “the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be.”

    Beyond the launch date getting confirmed for Xbox 360 & PS3, if there any truth to the unofficial word about GTA 5 being readied for many other platforms, then we’re sure to hear more about it at E3 2013 in June. Exciting times ahead people! 🙂

    Here’s the Grand Theft Auto V: Official Trailer #2:

    • So so sad now. Although it just seems right for it to be released later in the year.
