Last Updated on March 2, 2015

Current Release Date: April 14th

I think that this game is going to end up being extremely well optimized, especially since Rockstar has actually pushed the game back yet again to April 14th.

Although most PC gamers would probably get upset at the fact that one of their most looked up to titles in PC gaming keeps getting pushed back to later release dates, I actually am glad that they are pushing it back. Let me share why.

Let’s take a company like Ubisoft for example. I’m a HUGE fan of the Assassin’s Creed series but Ubisoft ended my reign of assassinations simply because they didn’t spend nearly as much time as they should have from Assassin’s Creed III and on up. Unity absolutely sucks on PC because Ubisoft doesn’t give a damn about PC gamers and how ther games play on a PC. I think Rockstar has taken that into consent and they are now working on making the game run seamlessly on PC.

Based on the system requirements, it’s looking like a lot of the entry level PC builds will be able to run GTA V just fine whereas there will be some superbly detailed textures for those of you with more higher end gaming PCs.

All in all I’m pretty excited for GTA V to finally be released on PC. I enjoyed it very much on Xbox when I had Gamefly at the time and I only played it for maybe about a week but yet it was still one of the best games I had played for a long time!

Here are some screens of what the PC graphics are capable of:


GTA V for PC is taking things to the next level as far as graphics go. There is also going to be content that is entirely exclusive to PC players.


Having the ability to run this game at full 1080p HD while keeping 60 FPS is going to be great seeing on a PC. With that, GTA V on PC is also going to support 4K resolution and I can’t even imagine what the textures would actually look like!


The PC version is also going to include the new Rockstar Editor which is going to allow PC gamers to record their own videos within the game world of GTA V. I’m pretty excited to see where people take this editor and I’m excited to see possible actual films being created with it!



All in all, I’m pretty excited to see how this game will play on a PC, especially a high end rig. I can’t imagine what this game would run and look like while using maybe a GTX 980 or a R9 290! It’d look insane!

So, do you think your PC gaming rig will be able to run GTA V? Are you excited for its release?

  1. Glad to know that my 500 dollar PC that you reccomended can run GTA V!

    Instead of using the R9270, I used the R9270x. It just came in the mail today, and I can’t wait to try it out on the new rig.

  2. Thanks for the info.
    I loved all of the Grand Theft Auto games. I am glad to see that my laptop can handle this one with out a problem.

    Going to pick this game up again soon.


  3. My mate is totally hooked on GTA. The graphics on this look awesome and I know he’s thinking of upgrading his rig, so it looks like now’s the time! Cheers.

  4. My kids absolutely love GTA V and I think they will be excited to have the PC version for a comparison. The screen shots you have look like they have very good graphics and I hope they don’t push the release date back anymore! 🙂

    • GTA V is going to be amazing on PC! With the addons of the graphical enhancements and the Rockstar Editor, the PC version is just totally going to be the way to go. And yes, they better not push it back any further! I don’t want to wait any longer…

      Thanks for your comment!
