Well, we've got our release date...but it's a bit further away then we expected: September 17, 2013.

While Rockstar didn't give any concrete reasons for the four month delay they did offer their apologies, and a promise that Grand Theft Auto V will meet or exceed our expectations.

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 – we thank you for your support and patience.

The GTA Team

Sadly according to the comments on Rockstar's Newswire the cover reveal is also being delayed...but there is currently no word on how long.

    It sucks that its delayed. I pre-ordered it and everything thinking it was coming out in May. Well I still can't wait until it comes out. I'll be the first one in line though haha!

    I went to GameStop the other day to trade in a game, and noticed that all the GTA V posters have the original release either blacked out or labeled over the "SPRING 2013" to "COMING SOON". Sucks when reality kicks in.
