bringing this out 2 months before the next gen consoles will be a major mistake cause a majority of gamers will be saving up for those and wont buy gta5 now.

also it wont release until 2014 guarenteed.

look what happened to gta4 which was scheduled to release in fall of 07, didnt release until april 08.

gta5 will be delayed again til 2014, guarenteed

GTA IV had the justified excuses of having a new graphics and physics engine, that Rockstar was not familiar or experienced with the XBOX 360 yet, and that it was the first GTA on a new console.

GTA V has no excuse for all these delays, Rockstar has a lot of experience with the engine now, have experience with this gen consoles, and have had GTA IV and RDR to find out what works well and what doesn't.

Two months before the next gen consoles? Dude, the next gen consoles have not even been announced yet, and even if they were announced in 5 hours, they are still going to have to be at least 18 months away at the earliest.

The XBOX 360 was announced on May 12, 2005. It was then released only six months later in November. There is a good chance the next gen consoles will be out this year.

And we all know how well the launch of the 360 went over.

Originally suppose to have a "by March 2013" by the business people so that the revenue/profit from Take-Two was meeting the demand for the end of fiscal year for Q1, only game to rake in the big money they need was GTA V.

Rockstar posted an official "Spring 2013" release date and this is something that gives them April, May, and June 2013 as release times but is still a "this is a deadline when the game will be release".

Now it has a Sept. 17th 2013 release date which is a new deadline but now has a month, day and year for "this is when the game will be out".


In the business world not meeting your deadlines in very bad business as it means you can't commit to getting a product out when you say it will be. For a game like GTA it is some bad business to not release your cash cow when you say you will. Proof of this bad business is the fact Take-Two and Gamestop shares have dropped because of the delay and investors are flipping **** about Rockstar's delay well past spring or summer as a release date.
