Rockstar Games sent out a press release today officially announcing the release date of Grand Theft Auto V, the studio’s return to the open-world crime franchise. Unfortunately, fans excited to start firing rocket launchers at circling military helicopters will need to wait awhile longer than expected: The game has been moved back from its initial Spring 2013 berth, and will now hit stores on Sept. 17.

One year after the first teaser for Grand Theft Auto V offered an impressionistic, semi-inscrutable look at the game’s faux-SoCal setting, Rockstar Games has released a new trailer for the new entry in its beloved open-world crime series. Set to a pumping electric soundtrack, the trailer introduces you to the game’s three protagonists. Michael, a middle-aged ex-criminal, is living the Ray Winstone Sexy Beast life, sitting by the pool and happily living out his retirement. That won’t last. Then there’s Franklin, a young black man just beginning a life of crime, and also Trevor, who is insane.
As IGN revealed this week, GTAV will let you switch between the three characters — a radical shift for a series that has always been about single-character epics. If that all sounds too conceptual, the trailer also features a Molotov cocktail, a train crash, and a scene where you drive a car out of a plane mid-flight. READ FULL STORY »
