Grand Theft Auto V pushed back to September 17

GTA V logoRockstar Games has been showing off Grand Theft Auto V for over a year now without a release date. That silence ended today when the company announced a September 17, 2013 arrival for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions (no official word yet on a PC release).

Rockstar had previously given a vague "spring 2013" launch window for the next entry in its best-selling series and merely noted in a press release today that the delay was "in order to allow additional development time."

Grand Theft Auto V pushed back to September 17

The stock market reacted quickly to the news. The price of Take Two on the NASDAQ dropped about 10 percent almost immediately to $11.60 a share, but it has since rebounded and stabilized at $12.30 as of this writing. Electronic Arts, on the other hand, saw its share price spike 4 percent to $15.74 per share. Stock in game retailer GameStop has been declining steadily all day and has currently lost 4 percent of its value.

The upcoming game takes place in Los Santos, a city the developer is calling "the biggest, most dynamic, and most diverse open world Rockstar Games has yet created." In a change for the series, GTA V will focus on the intertwining stories of three different controllable criminals: a "former street gangster," a "professional ex-con," and "a violent maniac," as Rockstar puts it.
