Grand Theft Auto V has been out for over a year now on last generation Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, and just launched on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the end of 2014. Its now official, the PC version will be available on March 24, 2015.

This is a slight shift from the original expectation of the PC version due to the game requiring 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,” said Rockstar via the press release today.

GTA Online for PC, which will support up to 30 players, will launch alongside GTAV for PC and will include GTA Online Heists.  Online Heists for consoles will be launching in the coming weeks ahead of the PC launch.

GTAV for PC pushes Los Santos and Blaine County to even greater levels of detail, running at 1080p and 60fps with up to 4K resolution and support for up to triple monitor configurations, as well as NVidia 3D Vision for up to triple monitor setups.

GTAV for PC also includes the new Rockstar Editor, which gives players a full suite of editing tools to create and publish gameplay clips direct to both Social Club and YouTube.
