It's official, from Rockstar:
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. GTA V 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
I never get pissed at game-dates being pushed back any more. Get it right, then
charge me $60 for it. I know not every developer has the luxury, but I'm totally down with the, "It's done when it's done"-attitude. Take your time, Rockstar. I have plenty of games to keep me entertained. Delay it until you feel it's perfect. This is such a big and important (important for having fun, anyway) game that they need to make sure it's not rushed. I like it.
