Rockstar games has delayed the release of this year's hottest property, Grand Theft Auto V. Inititally scheduled for a "Spring 2013" launch, the open world crime title now won't hit shelves until September 17th.
"The September release date moves the launch back from its original projected release window of spring 2013 in order to allow additional development time," said Rockstar.
In addition to this, the statement also carries some promo blurb regarding what studio founder Sam Houser calls, "The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world Rockstar Games has yet created."
"Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV," it says.
"Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score.
"Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life."
So yeah, delayed. We're gutted.
