You gotta be kidding me. 4 MONTHS
Its more like seven months. Its only coming into February now.
4 months after they said for a spring release
Yeah. But think about this - Bioshock Infinite in the Spring, GTAV in the Fall. Talk about a lucrative year for Take Two. Extra time can only mean more polish, and, when Grand Theft Auto is involved, take all the time you need Rockstar.
I totally dont feel the hype for GTA,I can wait till September
A game of this magnitude needs as much time on the cooker as possible. At least now I know that I'll have no need to buy a next-gen console this fall.
Good, I want to play it in winter when it's cold and boring. Rather than in spring when i want get out and live.
...now they better release a god damn pc version of the game with this delay...OR ELSE.... huh...or else...... im gonna take the ps3 version.
WTF! What happened to a Spring release...
will there be a next gen version?
What a goddamn joke. At least have the goddamn decency to not give a "spring" release window 2-3 months prior to the damn delay...
ugh, right when I go back to school.
This is Fantastic for me at least, no one sees the barrage of games releasing this year and in Spring alone? I gotta gear up for Crysis 3 and Revengence is Feb, God of War, Bioshock and Naruto in March, Soul Sacrifice in April, The Last of Us in May, PSN titles in summer(Drought season) and Splinter cell in August,with GTA V right there in september need the spacing for real man
PC release should follow shortly after.
MurDocINC makes a very good point, im more of a winter gamer
The wii u is tanking right now with a very thin lineup of games for the near future. Gta5 on ps3 and 360 in the spring with no wii u version could be devasting to nintendo. Four months is enough extra time to finish a port for the wii u that releases day and date with everyone else. Desperate nintendo money hat? Ok probably not, it's likely just the usual rockstar delay. But you never know...
Anyone noticed this is the same date as Killzone Mercenary release date? Sony should get to work on changing the date, otherwise Killzone is gonna be forgotten which is a shame because it's looking pretty good.
8 months ! F**king ballsack
This year is definitely gonna be very competitive. Very hard to say which game will be GOTY... as for GTA5, I can wait, no problem.
I would rather wait a little longer so its a perfect game rather than launch early with bugs/naff grahics etc
omg.. september release date? just like gta4 , red dead redemption, max payne 3 R* always announces games then delays them till april. MARK MY WORDS GTA5 WILL BE DELAYED TILL APRIL 2014!! dammit im pissed. fucking R* always with delays.
That's not Spring! That's more like fall 2013!
Im not even mad because there are so many games coming out this year. It will be fun to see ign review and see if they use the delay as a negative like they did with gt5 lol
Between the lines, this tell's me there will be no nextgen consol this year...
This sucks to hear
YOU have to be kidding me. :P
If they bring out a demo, I think most people will have the patience to wait. It is disappointing news never the less.
when are you gonna learn ? R* never releases demos
I know they dont, it's obvious. I just said IF, one can dream can he not?
I know right...are they serious Why tease us about a Spring release then have it on the first month of FALL. They showed this off ages ago Give us a new trailer or something EDIT @Below It's different though...it's GTA one of the most anticipated games this year. If Rockstar give us a rough Spring release date only to change it to fall then of course your going to be a little upset because you have to wait longer.
hahah I can't believe people are really crying about the delay. they always delay their games and I'm sure the game will be better for it. I don't mind the wait especially this year, there is ALOT of stuff coming out and when GTA comes out everything else will be ignored, by me at least. nothing bad ever comes from more polish. and when this game does come out. no one will remember the delays. they will just shut up enjoy it. so thank R* for letting enjoy other games this year instead of complaining :P
Have they ever NOT delayed a game yet?
Thats life, things change..not everything is set in stone, particularly in game development. Would u rather have a rushed product with tons of bugs?
@Root I get that. But it's not the only game coming out tp enjoy. Plus take two has to think about the other titles they are putting out this year. And like LOGICWINS said I'd rather have a game with less bugs. And it's something that the game could probably really benefit from. AC 3 needed extra months to be polished upeven though they worked on it for a while. And GTA is sure to be mush larger than AC3 so although I am a little bummded. The world aint over, And at the end of the day we'll have a great polished game. EDIT:And to people disagreeing with my other post above.you all have very good arguements thanks for putting in on the conversation with youre valid points of how im wrong /s
Isn't the game going to be coming out right before next gen consoles?
maybe....but we all dont know if the next gen will be out this fall....we all hope so but its not proving yet they will only sony and microsoft know that answer
Hehehe R* afraid of The Last of Us in May. Lol no I kid, put down your machetes and pitchforks
I'll be back in college when this hits; I wanted to at least get some time in before classes start. At least now we have a definite release date so I can go through some of this back catalog of games before it hits.
Dammmm......... i expected a May release for GTA5 and a September release for Agent. /s
This could make sony/ms delay the release of the next gen.....
OMG! Is this real - Are you kidding me.... All that Spring Release Bullsh$^ .... WTF? ROCKSTAR! -September- Dam! that burns..-OUCH! That's 8 MONTHS from now -FEB, MAR, APRIL, MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUG, SEP- -turns off computer.. goes back to sleep.. -You just messed up my whole day, ROCKSTAR! Thankx -Me Sad Now :( .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
My predictions were true. I need to take down that Patcher guy!
This is completly jacked up. This game should be out now. I have nothing to play until this comes out other than The Last of Us. I am so ready for the next Playstation and Xbox. They need to stop dragging there feet and release already.
September isn't so bad. This will give Rockstar time to improve on any errors they have right now. I'm sure many of us on here have a backlog of games that need to be completed. Not to mention God of War: Ascension, Bioshock: Infinite, The Last of Us, Tomb Raider & many more.
This Means: * More Content for us * More Polished game * Less Bugs * Better Missions * More missions * More activities to do * More places to go * More Details * More Cheat Codes for chaos and havok * More automobiles * refined and touched up graphics that look as good as they possibly could. * Better and more multiplayer features * 4 more months of Game play Testing * More secrets to find * More music stations and possible more artists in general. * More customization options. * More More More , Better Better Better How can people complain about this ? seriously there are hundreds of other good games you could play throughout the summer anyways.
I wish bathesda would think like that too. But they release unfinished games tha all that content you are talking about that RS could add, bathesda releases those in dlc packs I wish more developers would actually finish the games before releasing, it seems like we have become the beta testers who buy day me than a person obeying 3 months after launch gets a better products It's RS I have 100% confidence, GTA 5 will be 95 and above out of 100. Haters can hate but when GTA4 came out it was the best open world game, tha RS passed itself when they did RDR now everything they have learned from both and MP3 woll be passed on to GTA5. Just from the trailers GTA5 is looking like a lot of fun. RS heard ts fans and now we will get the best GTA game till date I still would love to see GTA hd collection And I want one more game in today's VC since IMO that was the best GRA setting
Thats 3 days before me birthday!
That is on my bday yeah boy!
Why did I get disagrees? Do people think im lying about my birthday?
Ok rockstar I will wait and pre order this now This is great news for every game 2 games that gain the mst are last of us and fuse. Fuse was delayed now EA can put it out without any major competition. One game that could suffer is beyond 2 souls if that comes out around September than it could be bad news for it. I say release beyond 2 souls in mid August and have the whole market to yourself since not a lot of big games come out in summer The first batman game came out in summer and did quite well
I did NOT expect that release date.
Theres not 17 months in a year....? Oh wait silly Americans
I think this is because they want to launch it near the nex-gen release too. Which I genuinely believe there making. Do you seriously believe they would release on this close to the launch of new consoles and expect maximum sales? Rockstar are all about MAXIMUM sales. If they sold early in year and said they would be making a nex-gen version aswell people may just hold off and thats a lot of months of lost capital for rockstar. So I genuinely believe this is why its been put back.
Dammit...I wonder if it will be on Next Gen system's then...and that's why the delay?
The delay gives Bioshock the space needed to rack up sales plus R* could add extra polish to GTAV
Polish translation takes this long?
I hate this whole pr bullshit. Instead of saying that they want to give their upcoming titles some breathing room, they come up with the we need to polish it nonsense. How long have they been working on this game now? So, they are telling me they need 8 months to polish this game because its so "ambitious." Well, we will see how "ambitious" it is when it does release. If they hadnt given a release window to begin with, it wouldnt have been this annoying. Next time, rockstar, dont give any release window lest you are certain.
they gonna send out this gen with a bang! :D
We waited all month for the boxart and on the last day of the month we get a... delay.
Well they never really gave GTA V a set date. They just said Spring 2013. Sure, Spring to Autumn is sort of a delay in itself but thats not the point. GTA V was never given a fixed date,
It will still be Spring by then...in Australia! So R* didn't actually lied lol
hahah they can use the old posters! nice.
I can wait.
I just hope they also now create a version for the next gen consoles. maybe same visuals, but 1080p and/or more fps
What the hell ?! Probably next-gen ports will arrive in stores !
Can't say im too impressed... so much for spring 2013
