Grand Theft Auto V Release Date : Has Been Delayed!

What’s The Reason For The Delay?

Many people might wonder what the reason for Rockstar Games delaying the release of Grand Theft Auto V for 4 more months. The reason was written on rockstargames.com and you can also read it here:

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

They also wrote this after total rage and mayhem in the websites comment fields:

Hey all, we understand many of you guys are disappointed with this news – unfortunately sometimes such delays are necessary in all forms of entertainment, and especially in the case of a game experience as massive and complex as GTA V. However this does not give you free reign to be abusive in comments. The general rules of common courtesy, decency and behavior as listed above the Comment Box still apply here, therefore anyone continuing to post abusive comments will have their privileges suspended. Also: To those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they’re all nonsense – literally the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be. For those of you asking about the official box art, that will be coming out a bit later as well. Thank you all for understanding.

Angry Fans And Frustration

Many fans have been angered by the fact that GTA V has been postponed forward for 4 months. I, myself got angered after recieving these news. But after some hours i understood that these news might improve the game even MORE. So this delay might be good for the performance and experience we get from the game when it’s to be released. One good thing that came out of this is the fact that Rockstar games atleast provided us with a release date. Hopefully more information is about to come in the upcoming months regarding GTA V multiplayer.
