Despite having been teased to come out around Spring of this year, Rockstar Games announced today that the next installment in their most successful series to date will be pushed back a whole season. According to their official website, Grand Theft Auto V will be in stores on September 17, 2013.
The announcement on their site is followed by a heartfelt apology by the GTA team:
“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.
