Rockstar Explains Why GTA V PC Is Delayed, Needs More Development Time To Be Amazing & Polished

Ah, the delay of GTA V PC has sparked lots of discussions about it. And contrary to what most people believed, Rockstar went ahead and officially explained why the PC version has been delayed. According to the company, this particular version needs more development time in order to be amazing and polished as possible. Yeap, you read that right: Rockstar is talking about optimizations, and that’s obviously a good thing.

As Rockstar claimed:

“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.”

For what is worth, Rockstar’s game testers have been testing the PC version on Steam yesterday and today. It appears that every week these two game testers are testing the PC version, so hopefully more of them will get to test it once the current-gen console versions are out.

GTA V is coming to the PC January 2015.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
