I think that the delay on the realease date might be to get the game further away as possible from all this gun controversy talk, hopefully by sept all this talk will die down barring another sicko going on a shotting spree
I seriously doubt they would push back a games release just to avoid some sensitive pricks complaining. These days shooting sprees seem to be becoming increasingly common. What if another shooting happens in August? Will R* push the release back to 2014? I really doubt that.

I'm a little disappointed that we won't see the game before summer. This summers is going to be really boring for me and a new GTA game would have really perked it up.

I highly doubt the next Playstation is out by the end of this year/beginning of next.

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.

This news broke my heart. I was so happy because it was coming out in May but now, I may not even get time to play it properly due to exams and other real life rubbish

What makes this news really bad is the fact that despite taking their sweet time with the game, they did not confirm a PC port....

I'm a bit disappointed with the news, I was really looking forward to playing the game quite soon. But I guess if it makes the game a lot better then it'll be worth it.

It does seem like they've just announced a random date though. September 17th is so far away and it seems so arbitrary, almost like they've thought "*bleep*ing hell, all these internet twats won't shut the *bleep* up about a release date or the PC version, let's just give them a random date to shut them up".

Also, does anyone know what the "conspiracy theories" are that Rockstar mentioned in regards to the delay? And can someone sum up if there's been some sort of law introduced or changed to do with 'violent games' please.

I have taken the liberty of annotating R*'s statement with some comments. In brackets.

quote
We know this is about four (or six?) months later than originally planned and we know that this short (long?) delay will come as a (crushing) disappointment to many of you, but, trust us (shut up?), it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game (we have suddenly shat ourselves at our own creation) and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require (pandering)
Ach. Im just annoyed and taking out my frustration on R*. Im not being too serious. It doesnt do my confidence well. Who's to say we wont get another delay? Then again it is nice to have a confirmed date...

I do actually believe it will be worth it. Just cant help being dissapointed. Its actually the lack of other decent games im really dissapointed in.

Wish R* had just not released the 1st trailer so early. Appologies for my pessimism and negativity.

Rockstar has done a lot of things wrong recently. Let's take a look.
  • Rockstar released the first trailer way too early. It was over a year between it and the second trailer.
  • They very abruptly pushed the release date back, leaving us with vague information regarding why.
  • They promised us box art that they never delivered upon. Moreover, they didn't even seem to acknowledge this in the slightest.
Don't get me wrong. I'd rather have a polished game than an incomplete one, but Rockstar could have handled this situation a lot better. Polish your game, but better inform your fans of what's going on and when they can expect new information, rather than infuriating them with a lack of communication.

Regarding the box art, maybe they've had to remove something from the game (or even decided to add something) and therefore had to re-do the box art to adjust for the changes?

A bit disappointing, but I can wait. At least I have other games to play in the mean time.

Perhaps this is their way of avoiding further delays. They're like 'it still needs some work but we're not sure for how long... *bleep* it, September, it's bound to be done by then'

Or is this the second coming of Duke Nukem Forever?

cancelled my pre order yesterday..I dont have $60 for this when next gen consoles might come out within months of this game. Plus, NHL 14 comes out one week earlier, and these are the only two series of games I care about anymore. Well, one series now. This is pretty much my official goodnight to gaming.

You're literally the biggest pessimist in the history of the human race.
Seriously.
I just don't understand how you can turn a year of so many good games from so many great franchises into a reason to leave gaming forever.
And the next gen consoles coming this year too! They definitely aren't coming this year, but even if they were, how do you use that as an excuse to stop gaming?

Woah, there's so much awesome stuff happening this year for the gamer. May as well quit forever.

I dont really understand how someone can 'leave' gaming. Are you having a going away party?
