    As you may already know, GTA V is coming to PC as it already was announced, but now we have a release date!
    Unfortunately the PC release will be the last on the list because the "next gen" version will be out first, which is scheduled for the 18th of November 2014 and the PC release is unfortunately coming only next year, on the 27th of January 2015.

    The new version will come with new additional features, which are:
    • New weapons, vehicles and activities
    • Additional wildlife
    • Denser traffic
    • New foliage system
    • Enhanced damage and weather effects, and much more
    • New radio selections, with over 100 extra songs planned
    • Increased Multiplayer count in GTA Online
    Here's a trailers as well!​

    UPDATE

    Maybe not many of you guys are excited for this, but I myself really am, because I waited for the PC version all this time, because I didn't wanted to buy a console just for one game! Maybe in the future I will, who knows...
    Now only if RDR would be released too on the PC like it was rumored back in May it would be just fantastic....so yeah... a man can dream... :rofl2:

    Putting everything aside, what do you guys think about the news? Angry for the delay or don't mind it?
    I myself don't really mind it, because they'll have time to polish it more for us PC users, that if they do polish it of course! :P

    May the mods, hacks, and pirating commence ^_^ I for one am glad to hear that the PC wasn't forgotten by this title. Can't wait to see all it's hi-def glory

    Great! Hope the GTA V come better optimized than GTA IV, My PC it's almost a PS3 in terms of power, so I'm not sure if mine can run it! , and fuck Take-two Interactive for not bringing GTA V in Wii U, now with my powerless PC I have lower chances to play GTA V...

    Neat. Hopefully they don't screw up the PC port like they did with GTA IV.

    Finallyyyyyyyyyy. Already waited for 2,5 years, a couple of months extra won't make it.
    Hopefully not an abomination like GTA IV (especially DRM side, so annoying)

    Yeah, let's hope they won't make any stupid GFWL stuff again. -_- Hate that stuff!
    Steamworks would be neat just like they did with Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire.
    Finally let's pray for no Social Club Multiplayer Only, which maybe won't ever happen, but let's just hope, the tiniest bit... :P


    Did I get you by surprise? :creep: :tpi:

    Is it called Grand Theft Auto because PC users will have to spend a grand to run this thing?

    Any reason for the PC delay? I mean the XBone and PS4 use pretty much identical architecture (with a few differences). I can't imagine that there's 2 months worth of issues still in PC (over holiday season when I imagine everyone's wanting time off) especially when there are leaked logs showing PC version being developed back with the 360 and PS3 versions.

    This annoys me. It won't make me buy a PS4 and GTAV it just means that if I want to play GTAV online with my friends I have to make do with paying Microsoft for the privilege on my 360 -_-

    No kidding, I'm all for pirates having trouble but when legitimate users are screwed over, it's really depressing.

    I'd assume setting up the online infrastructure stuff for the GTA online part of the game. Also a rush for console versions to release before the holidays, in order to maximize sales--I'm sure the PC version would have a smaller profit margin during this time than the console peasantry, making it more acceptable to put off for bit longer.

    I'm still surprised by how many people didn't know about the update log that was on-disc. PC was mentioned forever on there.

    Where them heists at?

    If the PC version had the heists it'd make it automatically the best release of GTA V.
