Grand Theft Auto 5 landing on September 17

Mark your calendars, open world crime fans. Grand Theft Auto 5 has been given an official release date of September 17 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The announcement gave no mention of the rumored PC version.

Rockstar acknowledges that this is a delay from its spring release window, which it attributes to giving the game additional development time.

"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 Rockstar founder Sam Houser in the announcement. "We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months."
