Looks like Grand Theft Auto fans will have to wait longer, as GTA 5’s PC release date has been knocked a couple of months into the future to March 24, according to a recent announcement on the GTA 5 newswire.
Here’s the full statement from Rockstar Games:
“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.”
On the flipside, the PC version of the game will come with some nice extras. It will run at 4K resolution, with a video editor that’ll allow you to film your own epic marauding or create GIFs of Trevor falling off things in slow-mo. The system requirements for the game have also been announced today, and they’re not that bad, either.
The last-minute delay builds up the anticipation way too long, especially for those who have booked time off to play it for days, so let’s just hope it’s worth the wait. After all, the game is said to be one of the best on PC.
