Rockstar announced that Grand Theft Auto V is delayed from ‘Spring’ to September 17, 2013 to ensure it can deliver “a triple-A experience to gamers.” History repeats since GTA IV was also delayed 6 months back in 2007. And, yes, I still waited in line for a midnight launch those same 6 months later. Won’t be doing that this time, but I still think it may be the last must-own game of this console generation. – Via The Verge
