The news came via the Rockstar Games Blog:
Dear all,Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you, but, trust us, it will be worth the extra time.

We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September – we thank you for your support and patience.Yours,The GTA Team
