Rockstar shoots down GTAV delay conspiracy theories
Developer says such theories are "all nonsense," there were no ulterior motives for four-month delay.
Rockstar Games has shot down conspiracy theories related to Grand Theft Auto V's recent four-month delay. Writing on the company's website, Rockstar said GTAV's delay from spring to September was for quality purposes and nothing else.
"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," the company said. "Literally the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be."
Shares of Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive and specialty retailer GameStop tumbled following GTAV's delay last week. The companies have since rebounded.
In addition, Rockstar confirmed that GTAV's official box art will be revealed "a bit later." The box art was previously slated to debut in January.
GTAV is due out September 17, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Wii U and PC versions are "up for consideration," according to Rockstar Games cofounder Dan Houser.
