Grand Theft Auto V Release Date Revealed
Eagerly awaited videogame due to launch this September...
Rockstar Games has announced the release date for the long-awaited new instalment of its Grand Theft Autofranchise.
Grand Theft Auto V will be released on 17 September this year - for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Set in the city of Los Santos, the game focuses on a gang of three criminals.
The press release explains: "Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score.
"Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life."
The game was originally due for release this spring, but additional development time was required.
Rockstar founder Sam Houser said: "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.
"We are very excited for people to learn more about the game in the coming months."
