Rockstar announced today that Grand Theft Auto V will be released this fall.
Instead of its originally announced Spring release, Grand Theft Auto V will now be released on September 17th for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. An official release date for the PC version of the game is yet to be announced.
Here is what Rockstar had to say:

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. 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.
To all Grand Theft Auto fans, please accept our apologies for the delay, and our promise that the entire team here is working very hard to make the game all it can be. 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.
