Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed on PC

GTA V will now not arrive on PC until March, Rockstar has confirmed.

The game had been due out on January 27th – indeed, just last week Rockstar was dismissing rumours of a delay following changes to the game's release date on Steam.

However, it seems the murmurings were correct. The game will now arrive on PC on March 24th, it has finally admitted.

Rockstar has also released the hardware specs for the game, which will run in 4K and 60fps for those with the necessary hardware, as well as in 3D for those running Nvidia 3D Vision.

The PC game will also include the Rockstar Editor, offering a full selection of editing tools for creating gameplay clips. Online the PC game will support 30 players and will launch with support for new GTA Online Heists.
