GTA 5 on PC Delayed to March, PC Specs, Heists Coming

Posted by TreeFitty January 13, 2015 : 5 Comments : 14,287 Views

Another SMH moment for PC and GTA fans. Just two weeks away from the official release date of GTA V on PC, Rockstar has now delayed it to March 24, 2015. On the upside they also stated that GTA Online heists will become available to consoles prior to the PC launch so at least there's that.

From Rockstar:
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.

They went on to say that GTA Online for PC will launch with the game (including heists) and support up to 30 players. Rockstar has also given us 6 new screenshots at 4k resolution (3840x2160):

Additional details about the PC version include that the game will run at 1080p and 60fps with up to 4K resolution and support for up to triple monitor configurations, as well as NVidia 3D Vision for up to triple monitor setups. The game also includes the new Rockstar Editor which gives players a full suite of editing tools to create and publish gameplay clips direct to both Social Club and YouTube.

    There was a time when GTA used to be the first game on my mind, but thanks to R*, I can finally focus on other games now!

    I just can't believe that R* did that with us again.
    Specifications are less then I expected and that's good cause it points that game will be better optimized (I hope so)

    Delaying the game is not the best decision by R* but if it helps them polishing game for better experience than I am okay with it.
    THIS BETTER BE THE LAST TIME
