As if we all didn't see it coming already, it seems that the mighty Grand Theft Auto series is delaying its latest installment until the fall. Probably for the better.
With a release date closer to the holidays, it will surely affect sales positively. Grand Theft Auto V is one of this generation of consoles' last big shebang alongside games like The Last of Us and The Last Guardian, so it reserves the right to polish up in whatever way possible.
Rockstar Games had this to say:
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.

Well that's sweet Rockstar, but given your release date track record I think we all prepared for this in advance. No worries there. For more gaming news such as this, reviews, and more be sure to subscribe to Dalton on Examiner.com.
