GTA Best-selling game of all time in the UK

Rockstar has announced that they are pushing back the release of GTA V from January 27th to March 24th. This delay is due to the developers needing more time to ensure the game is running perfectly when released.

This confirms rumours that have been circulating on the internet for the past the week that the port would not come out in January, despite Rockstar previously suggesting otherwise. 

“As we head into 2015, we would like to share the first screens and system specs of Grand Theft Auto V for PC as well as a new release date of March 24, 2015.

Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be. 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.”
