It’s that time that everyone has been waiting for. Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto V will be available from September 17th, 2013. The company announced the news on its website and apologised to fans that the game will come out later than expected.
The announcement read:
"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"
Hopefully it will be worth the extra wait. From what we’ve seen so far it looks as though it certainly will be. The question remains whether Rockstar will show off more from the game at events such as E3 during the year. Time to start ticking off days on the calendar and getting that countdown timer running; GTA V is on the way!
