Rockstar games have confirmed the initial official release date of the much antisipated sequel Grand Theft Auto 5. The game is Scheduled to be released on the 17th of September 2013. A bit later than some people were expecting. It should be noted that some game stores have put up other non official release dates based on speculation and rumours and these were never official release dates. A new rumour has also started to circulate stating the game may be put back further if announcements of new consoles are forthcoming. This speculation has started because Sony is expected to start providing details of the Playstation 4 in due course. A game like GTA 5 may well be a great seller at launch date of a new console and and such a delay in release could be beneficial to both console manufacturers and Rockstar games.
