GTA V PC Release Delayed Till March

By   /   Jan 13, 2015

Rockstar has confirmed that the release of the PC version of GTA V has been delayed till March 24, 2015. The news comes along with additional revelation: the Online Heists will launch within the coming weeks.

Earlier this month, several speculations arose of a probably delay of the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, which has been available on next-generation platforms for a while now.

The game was originally set to be released on January 27, and Rockstar had snubbed rumors of any delay, assuring gamers that there had been no change.

It seems that the studio has finally yielded to the inevitable, and has come out with the statement of its delay. The statement reads:

“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.”

The system requirements for the game have also been released, and fall into the expected window. However, the space requirements might take some folks by surprise:

Minimum Specifications:

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 64 Bit Service Pack 2 (NVIDIA video card recommended if running Vista OS)
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
  • Memory: 4GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB

Recommended Specifications:

  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB

The game will support 4K resolution, which is probably why the space requirements are so inflated.

GTA V will also support Nvidia 3D Vision for dual or triple monitor setups. The game will be arriving with GTA Online Heist, and the multiplayer will support up to 30 players at a time.
