Grab your baseball bats, cheat-code books and budding sense for causing absolute chaos, kids – you’re returning to Los Santos in the near future.
Take-Two Interactive, the publishing label behind the gaming behemoth Grand Theft Auto, have announced the official release date for its anticipated new entry in the series. The follow-up to the critical and commercial hit Grand Theft Auto IV will be released September 17th of this year.
For those who were aware, Grand Theft Auto V was originally scheduled for a spring 2013 release window, but has been since delayed to “allow for additional development time”, as stated on the company’s website.
Whilst it may have been five years since Grand Theft Auto IV, developer Rockstar Games assures fans that the quality of the game will set new boundaries for this long-time gaming series:
“Grand Theft Auto V continues to push the series forward in new ways; Rockstar North are creating our deepest, most beautiful and most immersive world yet,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months.”
Details of the game can be found on Rockstar‘s website including information on the game’s three protagonists and its approach to the series, as well as an ‘ambitious approach to open world multiplayer’.
Grand Theft Auto V will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3. There is no schedule for a PC release just yet; however, it could be possible that a modder is taking the matter into his own hands.
