The time its taken to get to only this announcement has been excruciatingly long and boring. Disappointed, but I kind of felt like it was going to get pushed back anyways.

[Rockstar is laughing at all the conspiracy theories:


To those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they’re all nonsense – literally the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be.

If you want a good laugh, check out the newswire: the number of comments on the delay is greater than the number of comments on all the other articles on the first page combined.

At last, a spring release. Not spring.

Seriously though, at least there's a specific date to look forward.

Im a bit disappointed that they have been working it up over the last couple of months for a possible release in march-may.
The game doesnt even look like it should need polishing till september, its big and all but it looks too far in its latest stages. I do think theres an actual reason behind it. Im assuming the hurricane may have interferred, maybe some hardware was damaged or their office could have needed some maintenance requiring certain employees to change places or an important voice has come down with something and cant use their voice or maybe a disagreement may have happened requiring a new actor.
Who knows? Maybe theyre telling the truth.
It is disappointing as and I've been even more disappointed with how this pre-release info is going, other games have kept it so interesting. But the lack of any type of news is just plain annoying.
Itll be good at the end, ill still buy it and the ones who are cancelling their pre-orders and saying they wont buy it are just sad. Itll be a game ill be confidentally taking off the shelf and paying $110 on the spot. But I'm only hoping the possibility of it being a last resort release date made for their take two fiscal meeting thats apparently on next week.
We might just see a close release date, but thats long hope.

You can't take anything we've seen as a measurement of how close they are to release. It's not a couple of guys in the office recording a few minutes of gampeplay and chucking it on youtube. Rockstar are a big, professional company. They had someone with lots of video experience, probably marketing background, directing the clip. Storyboards detailing the shots, transitions, progression of the mini-story in the trailer. Then taken the appropriate shots showing what they'd like the end-product to be like.

They're not going to put cars with broken textures or physics glitches in their videos. The trailers have shit all to do with what their product looks like in it's current stage. It's a preview of the end product of the game. Otherwise, trailers for any game wouldnt be released until weeks before the game's release.

I'd rather have the perfect game later than expected than one with missing features and bugs earlier. Not complaining here.

Not only that, but they HAD to have known the game's current progress when they said the box art was coming in January. I'd like to know what changed in 3 weeks that went from basically being complete, to somehow requiring 8 more months of work.

The whole thing seems very odd to me. either way i'll be exiting this forum until at least we get some good information. Putting the game out of my mind until we get close to the real release, which personally, I'm tired of waiting for.

Sorta glad from a selfish point of view. If it were released in April... I have my exams in May. Blessing in disguise (for me).

Does this mean the pc version will be out only 7 months after the consoles get it!? Or still an entire year later?

I guess waiting wont be so bad because the game will just be that much better when it is released.

Is there any chance that this delay is connected to the expected news of a PS4 release in late 2013?

No, I just think the game wasn't up to Rockstars own very high standards.

I doubt it has anything to do with the next gen consoles. Rockstar have been delevoping and programming for the 360 and PS3, not consoles which haven't even been announced yet, let alone released. The PS3 and 360 successors may well get an enhanced version of the game at some point who knows, but for now it all only points to the 360 and PS3.

On another note, can anyone remember any other game that was marketed almost 2 full years before it was actually released? I sure can't...
