Rockstar Denies ‘Ulterior Motive’ For GTA V Delay

Game Must Be ‘As Good As It Needs To Be’

Rockstar has dismissed claims that they have an ‘ulterior motive’ for delaying the release of GTA V until September.

In a comment on their official website, Rockstar said: “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.”

While it’s not clear what ‘conspiracy theories’ Rockstar are referring to, there have rumours circulating that the game was delayed so that it could be released on next-gen consoles.

The game will be released on September 17 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
