Have you been dying to hijack automobiles, flee from an army of cops and swat, and wreak havoc on your multiplayer friends in Grand Theft Auto 5? Well my friends today we finally got the official release date for the highly anticipated GTA5.
Originally Rockstar had slated the game for a release in the Spring time frame of this year. Numerous rumors and possible leaks spread like wildfire across the internet about the possible release date, but all of those have been proven wrong. Rockstar has set GTA5 to be released on September 17th, 2013 for Xbox 360 and the PS3. Rockstar pushed the game to a September release to "allow additional development time" for the game. While I personally wish the game was being released sooner the thought of more development being put into an already fantastic looking game gets me even more excited for the release.
Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser said today "We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months." All this news is getting gamer's even more excited for the game and rightfully so with Rockstar's history of Grand Theft Auto games. Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive have projected that the game will reach $600 million in revenues. This number doesn't seem far fetched for the GTA series and gamer's will be running to the stores in September to play one of their favorite franchises.
