After much speculation, Rockstar has finally provided PC gamers with a release date for GTA V on their favoured platform. True, it’s after the publisher pushes out enhanced versions for the PS4 and Xbox One, but Rockstar has offered non-console players some explanation as to why they’ll have to wait a couple of months for their fun.
A sticked comment at the top of Rockstar’s original announcement provides the following balm:
We’re glad to see so many of you are excited for the upcoming release of the new versions of GTAV and we look forward to sharing more details with you soon. We are also incredibly excited to be bringing GTAV to the PC, but the game requires a little more development time in order to ensure that it is as amazing and polished as possible. Please do stay tuned as we reveal new features and information about all the new versions in the weeks ahead.
To be fair, anything released for PC is going to require more love and care than its living room-bound counterparts, it’s just a shame we’ll miss out on playing it over Christmas. That said, I doubt there will be a shortage of games to play in the coming months, with October in particular utterly packed.
