Grand Theft Auto: V launching September 17th, 2013

It looks like Grand Theft Auto is getting the delay treatment. Rockstar gave the announcement yesterday and made sure to explain to its fanbase about why they wanted to delay the games launch.
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.
 
Yours,
The GTA Team
So a little disappointing to fans, but overall a good reasoning. GTA V launches 9/17/13 (or 17/9/13 for Europe) worldwide on the Xbox 360 & PS3. PC and Wii U dates TBA.
