The planned PlayStation 3 re-release of Grand Theft Auto 3 on PSN has been delayed due to music licensing issues.
Rockstar was due to release the game via PSN in the US yesterday, with a European release presumably arriving today.
“Due to an unforeseen complication, the Grand Theft Auto 3 PS2 Classic is not publishing with today’s Store post,” PlayStation Store director Grace Chen wrote on the US PlayStation blog. “We will update you when a new release date has been identified. We apologise for the inconvenience.
“There were some last minute issues with getting clearance for a certain audio track in the game,” PlayStation blog staffer Morgan Haro added. “But the teams at Rockstar are on it to review how to best get this title on PSN.”
Grand Theft Auto will cost ($10/£6.40) when it’s finally released, although it’ll not include HD graphics, trophies or any other enhancements.
