GTA V was announced back in October of 2011 and, ever since, its release date has been speculated upon. However, all that changed late last year when GameStop began to put up posters of GTA V advertising a claim for a Spring 2013 release.
Today however, Rockstar has confirmed that GTA V will be delayed until September 17, 2013. Rockstar explained that they require the additional time to polish the title and that GTA V is a “Massively ambitious and complex game” which they feel is not yet up to their high standards. They hope that with this delay, GTA V will meet if not exceed consumer expectations come September.

Unfortunately, Rockstar has not yet officially confirmed whether they are working on a PC or a Wii U version of GTA V.
