Developer apologises after pushing game back to April

GTA 5 delayed on PC (again)

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 has been delayed for the third time.

It will now arrive at retail and in download form on April 14th – a few weeks after its previously scheduled March 24th release date.

The game originally launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in September 2013, and last year developer Rockstar said it would launch on PC in autumn, before delaying the launch on PC to January 2015. It was then later delayed to March.

Rockstar said in a blog post: "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.

"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."

Rockstar says GTA 5 for PC is its ‘most graphically and technically advanced version yet’ featuring 1080p / 60 frames per second and up to 4K resolution, along with triple-monitor support with Nvidia 3D Vision.

Grand Theft Auto is one of the most popular video game series of all time, having sold more than 185 million units since the first title launched for the PC back in 1997.
