GTA 5 publisher defends development cycle

The news of Grand Theft Auto 5 being delayed has hit fans hard, and although this seems to be the most anticipated game to release for some time, we hope that this delay will be used to create a title worthy of the wait. It seems that all those involved with the development of the GTA 5 have been heavily criticized by fans expecting the game sooner, yet Take-Two Interactive has jumped to the defence of the long development cycle, as well as the amount of time between each instalment. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Take-Two, Xbox 360)

Dude, forget people who complain about it. I don't want an incomplete product, I'm VERY happy to hear they delayed it. That can only mean it's going to be even better. They're busy making a masterpiece, I'd rather have that than yet another "pretty good" game.

For a game such as GTA, its best they don't put one out every couple of years. It pays off, and it doesn't hamper quality.

What if its bad ? NO
IF it doesn't have a single problem , I'd be happy for the delay :)

Let's face it, all games have issues. It's just part and parcel of it like. People will probably call us a fanboy but I always enjoy the majority of rockstars work they put out, barring max payne 3's multiplayer which I detested, but on a hole, the odds of it being a great game are well & truly stacked in rockstars favor.

I like the GTA's being released every single couple of years or so. There is a lot more hype for the game. It makes the game even better and more polished, plus the launch feels like an occasion rather than something that you have experienced all over and over again, year in year out.
(I'm looking at you, COD,Fifa and AC series)

I've got to give it to R*.., they sure know how to build a fever pitch. GT5 and The Last of Us help tide me over till next gen arrives.

No need to defend it
it shows that you actually care to make a really good product.

The only time that's a problem is when you do like Sony, and announce a game 7 years before it's ready, and have delay after delay. They could simply announce a game when it's in it's polishing state, but couldn't keep a secret if their lives depended on it.

yea too bad by the time the game will come out no one will care everyone will be gearing up for PS4 or 720. and giving that neither of those consoles will be backwards compatible you essentially have to buy the same game twice. should of had a june release.

LOL yeah cause everyone knows that was the case with GTA SA that came out near the beginning of the current gen.

/sarcasm

LMFAO people these days just want everything now without really knowing what that means for the product. Take as long as you need R*, if you think it needs more time then there's no need to defend yourself, it's not like people aren't going to buy GTA.

Translation:

"We're struggling to get the game actually working at a stable 20 FPS @ 640p on outdated, memory-starved consoles. The quality of footage you've seen so far is from raw assets running on a $700 PC and the fidelity and smoothness will be nowhere near that in the final release, but that's okay, because there's no regulation in the games industry and console-only gamers are too stupid to notice the difference."
