After some recent rumours saying that the eagerly anticipated PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 was looking like it was delayed, Rockstar were quick to confirm - only 12 days ago - that it was still on track
for its targeted release date of January 27th.
However, confirmation that the release date has indeed been pushed back has just arrived, with word on the official Rockstar site
that the new date is March 24, 2015:
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.
The post also includes some new screenshots as well as revealing the minimum and recommended system specifications required (make sure you've got 65GB of hard disk space free!).
