Thursday comes with a little bit of bad news for all of the Grand Theft Auto fans out there: You can expect some delays.
Rockstar announced today that the next entry in their flagship “Grand Theft Auto” series will be pushed back from an original “spring” release window, to September 17th. The good news is that there is now an actual day to take off work to play, but it comes at the expense of testing your patience (something I don’t have a lot of).
The Rockstar development team had this to say:
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.

While waiting stinks, I’m sure there’s a reason for the delay so let’s give Rockstar all the time they need. Maybe with this delay we may see a Wii U version of the game? One can only hope.
