Great news, “Grand Theft Auto 5” fans. Rockstar Games’ action-adventure title will not be delayed as feared, but is still set to launch on Jan. 27 for the PC. It's a game that PC players have long been waiting for, following its release in September on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems.
Rumors of the delay surfaced when Valve Software removed the Jan. 27 date from its Steam listing, but Rockstar has assured players the game will reach the platform on the intended release date.
“'GTA V' will be coming to PC on Jan. 27,” the developer promised Saturday in a post on its Rockstar forums. “We have not announced any changes to this date at this time.”
“GTA 5" launched in September 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, an open world action game developed by Rockstar North of Scotland and published by Rockstar Games.
“GTA 5” received highly favorable reviews and was the 15th installment in the “GTA” series and the first game since 2008’s “GTA IV.” Following its release, the game received Game of the Year honors at the 2013 Golden Joystick Awards.
Within just 24 hours of its launch date, “GTA 5” generated more than $800 million in revenue, which equates to selling about 11.21 million copies. The title surpassed $1 billion in sales after just three days on shelves. The game launched for the eighth-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles one year later, in September 2014.
