Rockstar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch worldwide for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 17, 2013.
The September release date has been pushed back from its original projected release window in order to allow additional development time.
“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 is the biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world game that Rockstar Games has ever created, blending storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three protagonists.
All the classic hallmarks of the groundbreaking series return, including incredible attention to detail and Grand Theft Auto’s darkly humorous take on modern culture, alongside a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer.
