The lights are on
Rockstar has laid to rest rumors of a conspiracy theory behind the delay of imminent blockbuster, Grand Theft Auto V.
"To those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they're all nonsense – literally the only reason we've delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be," the company said in a post on the official Rockstar Newswire.
Rockstar also mentions that the box art for the new installment will have a late release. GTA V’s release date has been pushed back to Sept. 17, four months later than originally announced, but the company asks for the benefit of the doubt. "Trust us, it will be worth the extra time,” Rockstar said.
Rockstar has released a statement apologizing to fans and further explaining the situation.

i can wait, but i was hoping for a summer release so that i could play it all summer
This is news to me...
THEY LIE! THEY IS TRYING TO WORLD OVER!
people need to relax, think of how much pressure that studio is under right now, people are predicting that this will be fastest selling game of all time, gta4 was the highest rated game of all time with a 98/100, and there is a HUGE amount of hype.
I'd heard of no such theories. I expected this after the GTA IV October to April delay.
FUDGE!!!!!! I was really hoping to pick this game up before my husband gets stationed in Japan this summer. Oh well, hopefully they'll have it at the NEX.
Rockstar seems like the type that would just flat out say, "It's our game and we'll release it when it's ready." They haven't done us wrong with GTA yet, so just have some patience everybody.
It looks like this was posted on their Newswire, where they invite comments from readers. Apparently many of the readers were abusing the site's terms and conditions, posting "abusive" statements. Sounds like Rockstar's been cleaning these up, but must have come across some nasty ones.
Hahahahahahha! Okay, Rockstar, okay.
I say well done. People will complain and whine about it, but I rather have a polished game than a buggy and not impressive game.
So it's saying, The game is delayed until September? am I right? If so I rather them take their time then rush it...Rockstar is smart with their games and i'm sure it'll be worth it
