The Grand Theft Auto 5 box art will now be revealed later than planned, Rockstar has confirmed.

The official artwork was promised for January, but Rockstar instead confirmed a September 17 release date, some four months later than planned.

"For those of you asking about the official box art, that will be coming out a bit later as well," a rep told fans on the Rockstar Games website.

The spokesperson also moved to end speculation that the delayed release is for any reason other than wanting to release the best game possible.

"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," explained Rockstar.

It could also be they can't produce box art without the correct console logos on them? Nobody knows what the PS4/Nextbox logos will look like. The usual PS3/360 logos are also missing from the trailer.

Yup, totally agree. Wonder if I'll get some random Xbox Live hate for this comment. BRING IT.
