News: GTA V PC release Date and Specs Announced

gta v sn

After being quiet two weeks before launch, Rockstar announced that the PC version of GTA V would be delayed until March 24th due to a few more weeks of testing and polishing. Remember that the Rockstar studio that is working on the “port” is the same studio that did Max Payne 3 which was very well done. It also has been surmised that they have been working on the PC version since before the launch on the older consoles so it is possible this is a completely different version from the console’s. The specs are also pretty fair which could show that this game could scale very well to old and new systems. Here is the Blog Post:

As we head into 2015, we would like to share the first screens and system specs of Grand Theft Auto V for PC as well as a new release date of March 24, 2015.

Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be. Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice we make only when we know it is in the best interests of the game and our fans. Thanks everyone for your understanding and we assure you these few extra weeks will be worth it when the game does arrive in March.

GTA Online for PC, which will support up to 30 players, will launch alongside GTAV for PC and will include GTA Online Heists.  Online Heists for consoles will be launching in the coming weeks ahead of the PC launch.
