GTA V on PC delayed till March 24; Rockstar offer apologies and recommended specs

GTA V

Rockstar have lavished a new release date on their GTA V PC port. It’s later than the old one, so that constitutes a delay. But! As compensation, they’ve released system specs.

The game is in need of a few extra weeks’ polish if it’s to look its best under the Los Santos sun.

“Our apologies,” write Rockstar. “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.”
