The release date being made known tomorrow along with the box art would be ideal.
Just call me psychic.

It isn't quite the Spring 2013 that has been floating around for the past few months but I don't care. Finally we know when it's coming out.

Maybe pushed back so it can be released on next gen consoles?...

Dan Mumford That would be amazing, but they're still confirmed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I'm fine with games getting delayed as long as they deliver, and GTA isn't a DiGiorno kind of series.

Yeah, I said that...

Edited for accuracy.

They will be on PS3 and 360 regardless of any potential Next Gen and PC plans. Rockstar can't afford to take a game that's probably cost them the best part of $100 million and then sell it on consoles with no install base whatsoever. PS3 and 360 with their install base will make up any losses on a potential Next Gen port.

Was expecting a much earlier release date but their reason for delaying it is good enough. Probably for the best as well so I can finish some other games and prepare for September!

This delay had better mean that they want to take their time, working out all the bugs from the PC version, which they had better be planing to release on the same day as the console versions, at the latest.

Also WTF R?!! It's been like 3 years since they announced it and by september it will have been like 5. Hurry it up, or announce it later next time.

It could be cross Gen.

In fact a release to fall pretty much means they wanna whore in as much cash as possible.

What I would assume the most likely scenario to be is that they may take advantage of the new tech in the next gen consoles, if they are out when GTA V launches, of course, but that the games will also be created for the PS3 and 360. I agree with you that there is no way in hell they are going to make a GTA game exclusive to the next gen of consoles even if they do manage to launch by September. How would they sell 20 million copies of the game if a new console generation has only sold one or two million by launch day?

I'd love to be proven wrong, but it's extremely unlikely that Rockstar would consider turning GTA5 cross-platform with next-gen systems or pushing the game back to next-gen. That's just not their style, not to mention the extra development time it would take.

They decided on 360, PS3 and they'll stick to it, for better or worse. That's just they way they develop things. If anything, the PC release may be even further delayed, because Rockstar will want to make the game they want and they'll want to get it out before the next-gen hits (November at the earliest, I believe).

They announced it like a year ago. Which means it'd be three by the time it comes out :/ Not as long as you're saying at all.

But either way, I wish they'd leave their release dates until they're solid with it, rather than this Spring 2013/October 2007 shit they've pulled for the last two releases. Five and a half years between games ffs.
