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.
