GTA 5 release date is 17th September - "trust us, it will be

Four months earlier would have put it in the 'traditional' R* window of May that we were all expecting. With this delay I'm going to add two further words to Ed and say:

Launch. Title.

Noooooooooooo,damn,so much for spring/early summer.Really as late as September though,surely it has got something to do with next gen.Which despite having too wait ages now might be a good thing in the long run given the size and scope of the game.Probably will suffer too much this gen.
Cry havoc ! and let slip the dogs of war.

As long as this is not one of those games that is continually bumped back that date is fine with me, although I had hoped GTA would fill the summer months which are usually void of any major releases. The prospect of a next gen release is a tantalizing one though, it would certainly explain the much bigger world.

Twitter's screwed right now. I wonder if this is to blame.

Hahaha, what the hell. So much promo for Spring 2013!
Imagine it'll now be a luck title for the new generation, with a version for the 360 probably as well.

The delay might give me enough time to get excited about it. The next gen debate is an interesting one, I really hope the decision is for that and not because they've scrapped half the game and had to start over. I really want this game to be a quintessential demonstration of what is great about games, which it easily could be with the blueprint of the series and the style and everything. Fingers crossed for masses of fun multiplayer modes.

Am betting if they released it for this current gen...
1. The graphics wouldnt be as high end as they would like it to be and
2. Without the blu ray player which the next xbox is rumoured to have it would take up like 5 discs lol

Next Gen?!

Doubt it - purely cos there is no PS4 due out in September - and unlike the 360 the PS3 still has plenty of life left in it imho

Damn! With GTA being R*'s flagship series, I understand them wanting to delay it until it's finished, but GTA V would suffer a dent in its sales if the next gen consoles are unveiled at E3 in June. Of course R* are in a better position to know if that would affect them, and they could always be porting the engine to next gen for a GTA V.I (that's 5.1 in roman numerals).

I'm sure MS would want them to delay further and make GTA V a next gen launch title, but I think that would be a PR disaster after so long in development for 360.
I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.

If it is being pushed back for next gen there's no chance of it not coming out for 360 or ps3 too, they've advertised it as for release on these systems but it wouldn't surprise me if they released it on Xbox gert regardless of whether ps4 is out or not, as most rumours point to this being the release for the nextbox.

I'm a little dubious of it, frankly. Maybe they've just seen the xbox hardware and think it will be very easy to port/upgrade up. More likely I think they just need the extra polish, because I doubt four months extra is enough to sort out the transition to next gen. If there's BF4 info out in 90 days, there's next gen info sooner as we all think that that is a gertrude title too. Maybe we'll find out more then. Personally, I'd wait for a next-gen version if it was 17th september gladly. But it is a colossal wait in the meantime, with only one good game coming out - Bioshock. I've got steam to keep me going though!

NB, there are a lot of childish people commenting on the R* newswire, glad to see our community isn't as low. Let them take the time they need to make it, and respect that.
It's all in the game...

I trust them. Rockstar make very good quailty games so I'm sure the wait will be worth it.
