Fans of the GTA serieshave to be feeling disappointed that Rockstar revealed Grand Theft Auto V would be delayed until September. The original release was for Spring 2013. The company did not give an explanation for why the game was delayed, so everyone has their opinion on it.
But it might surprise you to learn that the reason is pretty simple and mundane. Take Two says that the reason GTA 5 was delayed was due to quality, and that extra time would be required if they were to release a game that would ultimately satisfy even the most ardent Grand Theft Auto fan.
That makes sense and quality is everything. Who wants to play a half-baked game? Take Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnick said, “Look, Grand Theft Auto stands alone […] It’s a unique property. And I think we’re all extraordinarily excited about this title, and we think it’s just going to blow people away frankly at a level I don’t think anyone properly anticipates yet […] And the reason that the title is coming out in September is because that’s the time required to make sure it’s everything everyone expects and then some.”
