Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive have announced that Grand Theft Auto V is scheduled to release worldwide on September 17 for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
“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.”
This September release date pushes the game back from its initial launch window of Spring 2013. Rockstar Games says that this was done to allow additional development time on “the biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world Rockstar Games has yet created.”
