    To everyone looking forward to the next installment in Rockstar's wildly popular Grand Theft Auto franchise, well, there's some bad news. The developer just posted this message to their website.

    It looks like we'll just have to wait a little bit longer before cracking heads and hijacking cars in Los Santos. Still, as long as we get a better, more polished product in the end, the wait should be worth it.

    In the meantime, why not pass the time with CJ from Grove Street?

    How about you release it on the PC and Wii U with that extra time you got Rockstar?

    Awesome. This is good news as the game will baked in the oven a little longer. Wait will be worth it.

    I'd imagine there is quite a big of a mess if they actually delay the game for the PS360 almost half a year. Imagine if they started developing the two other versions and wanted a single release date.. All in due time :P

    Regardless of the reasons for the delay, hopefully they don't go the Bethesda route with the bugs :D

    Or maybe it will be released as a Next Xbox title exclusive, with Sony having to wait til their next console b4 they get it.

    Hey, if I have to wait 9 months to get my next fix of new Pokemon, I can wait 8 for my next fix of new GTA.

    You mean I have to wait another 4 months to watch Fox News bash the game as causing the latest violent crime?

    I'm disappointed.

    Damn it! I love the GTA franchise, I'm disappointed.
    I hope what they're doing is worth the time.

    NEWSFLASH: Rumours about GTA V being delayed turn out to be the true cause behind the latest school shooting incidents. To make matters worse, the game actually did get delayed. How did the shooters know? More on Fox News, tonight!

    It's okay though, these games are absolutely terrible anyway.

    I thought it was coming in December 2013. I guess they pulled it earlier for me.

    It happened with GTA IV, and so I see it happening as well. I just hope the PC port for GTA V (if there will be one) won't be as bad as the one for IV.
