Rockstar Games will release Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17, 2013, the publisher has announced.
The company originally planned to ship the title this spring. It apologizes for the delay, but promises that the team at Rockstar North are “working very hard” to make the game “all it can be.”
“Grand Theft Auto V continues to push the series forward in new ways; Rockstar North are creating our deepest, most beautiful and most immersive world yet,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months.”
Grand Theft Auto V brings the series back to Los Santos in what Rockstar describes is its “biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world” to date. The game stars protagonist trio Michael, a professional ex-con, Trevor, a psychopathic maniac, and Franklin, a former street gangster, all plotting their own chances of survival and success.
