Grand Theft Auto V Delayed, Take-Two’s Share Price Falls

Early this morning, Rockstar announced that Grand Theft Auto will be released on September 17th, which was quite a bit later than originally planned. As soon as Twitter came back online, the outcry of disappointment was nearly deafening.

Reason for the delay? The post explains that, "GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require." Considering how much we, as gamers, often complain about the lack of polish in games, or how obvious it was that the game was rushed to make a deadline, I think we can all appreciate Rockstar taking the extra time to make sure this sure-to-be megahit is done right.

Not surprisingly, Take-Two Interactive's share price fell over 8 percent within an hour post-announcement, according to Gamasutra. GameStop also experienced a similar slip in its share prices, down 2.9 percent shortly after the post went live.

So once again, it appears that we all have an incredibly busy fall to look forward to. Start putting aside your cash now!
