Spring lol
deadfrag  +   1032d ago
Pc version releasing the same day most likely.
Sci0n  +   1032d ago
Wow I already paid it off with the idea that it would be releasing this spring no later then the summer. Wth rockstar man! Rumor has it next gen consoles could be touching down around that time. This is horrible news for the gamers who have been patiently waiting but with all this time taken the game should be damn near perfect. I wish I could be able to transfer my Preorder to the last of us but I preordered my GTA v from rockstar Smh. 9-17-2013 is not far from 2014 this is crazyyy

So, this coupled with Splinter cell coming in August is majorly telling we are getting at least one next gen launch this year guaranteed. Both games are big IP and yet launching in windows normally set for outlying IP like a War Hammer Space Marine. Late October or early Nov launch window for the next gen.

launching in september when new consoles that may or may not be backwards compatible- WILL harm their sales fairly significantly-i'll be waiting for the next gen consoles due a month or so later-not spending money on this- maybe i'll get the pc version in a steam sale in a year or two assuming they make one if its been delayed just for pc version to ship at the same time i'll be annoyed....
Dlacy13g  +   1032d ago
Can you think of another logical reason for launching in mid September? If they give themselves enough of a window before the next gen consoles launch they will most certainly get buyers to have something on their current system even with a next gen console launching a month to 2 months out. Also... we don't know yet on the issue of BC. IF one of both consoles have BC baked in this may be a non-issue as they will not be fearful of consumers passing up on their title. PLUS...maybe they can launch a texture pack with the game for next gen console buyers?

Its just way too odd of a launch window for both GTA and SC for their not to be something going on in terms of new hardware. Both games could easily normally launch closer to holiday time frames.
extermin8or  +   1032d ago
Oh im certain on the hardware- the announcement that Battlefield 4 wont be out till early 2014 makes me 100% certain of that- but Rockstar are taking a risk, if they go next gen port route then they are up against specifically designed next gen games like Watch Dogs- if they don't then they better pray backwards Compatability will be available, and with september as the start time for universities and schools etc many people may not have the money to spend on a new game and a next gen console- after all their target market is 18+ for day one buys, because any parents that will buy it for thier little kids (wrong or right) usually wait till xmas etc it seems so....

Tbh I luv GTA but I'm not ditching my PS4 for it. Either it's also being released on next-gen or I'm missing out on it.
ratcop22  +   1032d ago
Im happy but so depressed to. The last of us, Bioshock, Gow Ac and pretty much every game announced with a release date will rack up sales. But R* Y is it soo far away!!!
TemplarDante  +   1032d ago
:/ NoOOooOOOoOO.
Why oh why! The humanity!
C0MPUT3R  +   1032d ago
They might as well up port it to PS4 so we can play it in 1080p 60fps.
Sandmano  +   1032d ago
Hmm Killzone Merecnary comes out on the 18th of September a day after GTA V Nice!! But its so fay away :(

They might as well have made it a next gen exclusive title. Atleast you would know it was being built from the ground up to run on the next gen consoles. If they did that it would automatically make the PS3 and 360 version obsolete though Smh. I won't be surprised if its announced as a next gen launch title. If that does happen there will be allot of confused gamers ready to switch there preorders from current gen consoles games to next gen console systems and picking up GTA V on there since it would most likely look more polished on the newer hardware consoles.
newflesh  +   1032d ago
Daaaaamn... Eight 8 friggin months... I could be dead by then.. :/
teedogg80  +   1032d ago
That's a long time from now but it will be worth the wait. GTA 5 and Killzone: Mercenary on the same date - someone will be missing at work on that day lol.

I knew this was going to happen just seemed to good to be true for a spring release date
Sci0n  +   1032d ago
Poor people who already traded in so many of there games banking on the spring release of GTA V Smh.
claud3  +   1032d ago
for all that are annoyed, get a life

this is common practice for all companies to delay their game or games

Rockstar are not anything special... They have done this before with GTA games and other games they make

so stop crying and just accept
coolmast3r  +   1032d ago
Rockstar Games are not special? You gotta to be kidding me.
koston3647  +   1032d ago
stop fucking whining about the delay.
Rockstar didnt promise anything

your disappointment is the consequence of impatiently getting your hopes up
coolmast3r  +   1032d ago
Actually, they promised that GTA V is coming SPRING 2013, you idiot.
Cam977  +   1032d ago
If they didn't promise anything then why did they pump out promo material to stops staring "SPRING 2013?"
Prcko  +   1032d ago
omg what a stupid date,dissapointed
MeatAbstract  +   1032d ago
Plenty of games coming between now and then. Probably for the best because these next few months are a bit packed.

However, I do expect a PC version now, Rockstar!
seanpitt23  +   1032d ago
What I dont get is why say spring they should of said nothing they must like disappointing their fans.

teedogg80  +   1032d ago
I kinda agree on that. Why bother with putting a release window on it if they're not 100% sure that's when it's coming out. I was a bit happy and sad with this announcement. Happy to see a release date but sad at what the date is.
coolmast3r  +   1032d ago
PC version simultaneously with console version anyone?
KingKevo  +   1032d ago
It's funny to say that, but Rockstar does what they've always done :)

But I'm seriously wondering why that is so. Look, we are all pretty much sure that we'll get new consoles this year. Now GTA 5 is THE biggest game and pretty much the only game that has a set release date for the second half of this year. Now combine that with the EA story about BF and FIFA, and the upcoming E3 where we expect the new consoles to be presented. Honestly, to me it starts to look like they have decided to either go for a release on the next gen consoles only, or maybe do it like TLoZ Twilight Princess did and have the game available on the new and the old consoles.

They must release it for next gen consoles, they just have to, otherwise it's really hard for me to think of a plausible reason for this, cause they've been working on the game for so long and I doubt that they do only wanna polish the game, cause if the game comes out for the old consoles only and the new cosnoles will launch around fall, the game MIGHT be going under in all the excitement for the next gen consoles.

Honestly, this is kind of a shocker, but things just got more and more interesting, and hey, I got enough other awesome games to play in the first half of 2013, so I don't really mind R*.

EDIT: And how freaking AMAZING would a GTA as a lauch title be, just imagine that!! And if it's not gonna be coming out for the new consoles I bet we'll have to wait way too long for a new GTA AND they will also not be able to sell as many DLC as they might want to, and I'm sure there's gonna be DLC. This supports my GTA 5 on next consoles theory I think.

First-world problems.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1031d ago
You really gonna cancel your preorder of one of the biggest games of the year? Just wait till September
DeadPixel  +   1032d ago
GTA released in sept and next gen release in time for xmas surely this is some sort of joke? What are they going to do port it over and make us pay full price again for a last gen game???
Sketchy_Galore  +   1032d ago
I guess videogames ARE responsible for violence because right now I feel like biting the head off a puppy.
Myst-Vearn  +   1032d ago
whatever there are so many great games that I still need to play and even more coming out, R* can take their sweet time
seanpitt23  +   1032d ago
This is telling me that next gen systems are coming next year
newflesh  +   1032d ago
Maybe they want us to pay twice for it. First in fall we buy last gen version and by christmas they'll be launch titles for next gen consoles. Hmm, that's one money grabbing plan from Rockstar
metalgod88  +   1032d ago
This may be the first time in my whole life that a game I'm actually looking forward to comes out on my birthday! Woo hoo! Happy Birthday to me baby! WOO!

But yeah, I don't really mind. I want them to take as much time as they need so the game is as polished as possible =)
