The delay of "Grand Theft Auto V" to September resulted in rumors that the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 title could arrive on the PS4 and next Xbox (aka Xbox 720). Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick implied during an investors conference call Tuesday that the highly anticipated game would not be coming to next-gen consoles though.
When asked if there was a possibility of a "dual-generation launch" for "Grand Theft Auto V", Zelnick said, "There is not one gamer who is going to sit out of GTA V hoping that something that is going to come along down the road that's better. It's going to blow everyone away, and it's going to be in the market in September."
Rockstar Games was a little more straight-forward in a statement on its website on Monday. There the developer said, "To those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they’re all nonsense – literally the only reason we've delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be."
"Grand Theft Auto V" is currently slated for a Sept. 17, 2013 release for the PS3 and Xbox 360. There's been no announcement for a PC or Wii U release. The PS4 and Xbox 720 are not expected to be released until October or November.
