Grand Theft Auto V Release Date

Grand Theft Auto 5 Release Date LogoIn slightly more concrete news than the PS4 announcement rumour, Rockstar Games have confirmed Grand Theft Auto V”s release date.

The game will be out on 17th September 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No word on next-gen versions or PC but I”d be pretty damn surprised if the game looks like this November trailer on current console hardware. We”ll just all agree to quietly ignore the part where it says Spring 2013, right?

Meet the three protagonists: Franklin, the former street gangster; Michael, the professional ex-con; and Trevor, a violent drug-addicted maniac. I”ll leave you to figure out who is who.

Rockstar have posted an apology for the delay on their own newswire:

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 online casino here is working very hard to make the game all it can be.

We know that GTA 5 will be set in Los Santos, a city previously seen in GTA: San Andreas, and that it will definitely feature cars.
