31st Jan 2013 15:41 | Grand Theft Auto

Grand Theft Auto V has been given a new release date - 17th September, 2013. Rockstar have delayed the game's launch from 'Spring 2013' because it 'simply needs a little more polish'.

Here is what Rockstar released today.

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.

The GTA Team
