Rockstar Delays GTA V PC to 24 March

PC fans need to wait a little longer if they plan on getting criminal records in Los Santos and Blaine County. Rockstar announced that the anticipated PC release for Grand Theft Auto V will be pushed back to 24 March, citing “a few extra weeks of testing and polishing” as the main reason. The news comes just two weeks before its expected launch on 27 January.

To remind us that the wait will all be worth it, Rockstar Newswire showcased a couple of 4K-resolution screenshots. The PC release can 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 new Rockstar Editor video editing suite will also be included to help create and publish gameplay clips for the Social Club or YouTube. With GTA Online on PC supporting up to 30 players, as well as the concurrent release of Online Heists mode, we’re expecting a surge of player videos post-launch.

Personally I’m looking forward to the inevitable mods – just look at Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

GTA V  PC was originally announced to release on 22 November 2014. In any case, the game has already been out on past-gen consoles for well over a year so a few extra weeks is merely a bump in the road.
