You're Going to Have to Wait Till September for GTA V

By Sam Gibbs on at

I can hardly believe it, but this comes from the horse's mouth: Rockstar has just announced that we won't be seeing GTA V until September 17th -- four months later than planned. Say it aint so Rockstar? Seriously? We want it NOW!

Apparently the delay is simply down to spit and polish. Rockstar's just not done with the coding and refinements yet. Basically, GTA V isn't fully baked yet. And while you and I might love a gooey brownie or two, a half-baked game is just plain infuriating.

"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."

So, while I'm not loving the wait, it's better Rockstar gets it right first time, and doesn't make us wade through glitch, after bug, after crash. In the meantime, we'll just have to sate ourselves with GTA Vice City, which has just hit the PSN. [Rockstar]
