Sorry PC fans, you will be waiting a bit longer to jump into Los Santos and its surrounding areas. Rockstar announced a new release date today – March 24th. Why the delay? Rockstar says the game “requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be.”

System specs for GTA V were also revealed. Most of them look typical for new releases these days, but one stands out. 65GB of hard drive space. DAMN! Better clear your backlog of games and make some room. Or hell, buy a new hard drive just for GTA V.

Why the insane size? The Heists update has to contribute to some to this. Rockstar announced GTA Online Heists will be included with GTA V on PC. They also narrowed the release date down a bit more for Heists on consoles.

“Online Heists for consoles will be launching in the coming weeks ahead of the PC launch,” reads a Rockstar post. So basically, sometime between now and March 24th.

Give me a date on when you think it’s coming. I say February 24th. I hope it’s sooner, but who knows. We’ve been waiting for Heists for more than a year.

Rockstar also released a handful of screenshots. Check them out in 4K over at their website.
