Grand Theft Auto V is delayed on PC for a third time

Rockstar has announced a third delay for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V.

The game had at one stage been due out alongside the PS4 and Xbox One titles last November, but was subsequently pushed back to January 27th. However, this was then changed to March 24th. Now the game isn't due out on the platform until April 14th.

It also looks as if the game will only be released on PC digitally (UPDATE: This is incorrect. The game will be released physically and digitally).

Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC,” the studio said.

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is our most graphically and technically advanced version yet, fully optimized to support a broad range of current hardware (system specifications) and features a host of PC-specific enhancements including greater levels of detail, deep configuration options and ultra-high-definition support – as well as the powerful new Rockstar Editor for recording, staging and editing original custom videos.

We thank GTA players worldwide for their patience in awaiting these big game updates and we are excited to bring both Heists and GTAV for PC to you very soon. As a gesture of thanks for your understanding, we will grant anyone who has pre-ordered the game an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online.”
