Grand Theft Auto V for PC now in its “final stages” – expect system requirements shortly

Grand Theft Auto V

We grumbled when Rockstar let the prospect of a PC port for the new Grand Theft Auto drift along unmentioned for months, and then announced it as an afterthought – leaving ours the fifth and final platform.

But it’s no good holding a grudge. The idea of a first-person GTA V – not to mention a chic range of new dogs – has made it essential playing. Rockstar are finishing up work ahead of the January release date of GTA V on PC, and will announce GTA 5 system requirements within the week.

“We’re presently in the final stages of development on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V and hope to have confirmed official system requirements to share soon here at the Newswire,” wrote Rockstar in an official Q&A. “Please stay tuned for that to be announced in the coming week.

“Thank you and we’re very excited to bring GTAV to the PC gaming community!”

The publishers reminded future players that progress would be transferrable from consoles to PC, and that there would be no limit on transfers – if you’ve already switched your save over to the new Xbox One version, there’s nothing to stop you doing the same again once the PC port Dodos in on January 27.

You lot up for a post-Christmas crime spree? There are multiplayer GTA V heists waiting to happen, y’know.
