Just posted, it is coming on the September 17 2013.. [url="http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/48591/grand-theft-auto-v-is-coming-9172013.html/#comments"]http://www.rockstarg....html/#comments[/url]

[quote]Dear all,

Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.

We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you, but, trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require.

To all Grand Theft Auto fans, please accept our apologies for the delay, and our promise that the entire team here is working very hard to make the game all it can be. We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September

What is the point in releasing GTA V in September. It should have been a next gen launch title, I might hold off playing it incase it gets a next gen rerelease.

I have played every GTA games but never finished any.

Just my opinion....

It's incredible how terrible and flat the details in some of those shots :/
They need to release more blurry "action" and night shots!

I guess they figure everyone has a PS3 and 360 and that's where the sales are going to be. Progress has just been hindered, gentlemen..

How long is GTA usually in development for and how long have dev kits been around for new consoles?

Rockstar have already stated that they are not making GTAV for next gen. I don't see why people are so obsessed with having everything on next gen already...

What do you mean "what's the point"?!

The point is they've spent the last 5 years developing it on current-gen & can sell to an audience that next-gen won't have for years.

Why on Earth would they just dump a near complete project it to next-gen when they have no need for it. That would be stupid.

I'm wondering if I can wait long enough for the PC version.

I don't mind consoles but I love the mods that came out for GTA IV

Exactly, they've spent $150m or whatever it is developing this over 5 years, it would be commercial suicide to launch on next gen with less than a million sales in the first couple of months.

I wouldn't be averse to having a "HD" version of the game launching around the new consoles running in HD using same assets just faster FPS.

Yep, just like with ME3 on Wii U, they can easily use the PC port of the game and bundle in extras for the newer systems.

Thank god that will never happen, otherwise I would never buy another game from Rockstar.

Looks like I'm going to be missing out on GTA V, I'll be putting the 360 on ebay at the end of April as I just don't play it anymore. Pretty disappointing that it wont be released on next gen. Here's for hoping a PC release on day 1 - although wont happen.

Considering that you could probably pick it up for a few bucks, it may be worth it. Personally I didn't get on with it as they tried shifting to more realistic physics which removed half of the fun for me.

I'm intrigued, why would you not get it because of the Frostbite 3 engine?

It's a terrible looking engine, have you tried the mod for BF3 which removes all the filters?
Once you've seen past the motion blur, tints, camera glare and all the other pointless overlays it looks ugly as hell.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the engine used by Rockstar (RAGE), RDR was visually stunning.

You say that as if the RAGE engine used by the GTA-series is actually better. :|

All the media put out for GTAV so far looks really poor - low resolution textures, low polygon counts, poor quality lighting, outdated facial animations, etc. That's without knowing anything about performance, which was hugely lacking in GTAIV. Yet again we'll be looking at it running 30fps on consoles

Nope, I'm a PS3 gamer so I don't get the luxury of mods.

Oh don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily have a problem with the RAGE engine, but I do find it lacking in areas. The only word that I can think of at the moment is "boxy."

RAGE engine is technically impressive, its just gimped by 6 year old hardware. I imagine they have some form of RAGE already running on next-gen hardware, I'd be interested to see what the graphics would look like on next-gen system.
