Grand Theft Auto V: Release dates for PC, PS4 and Xbox One confirmed

A refreshed version of Rockstar’s bazillion-selling game will arrive on newer Xbox and PlayStation consoles on 18 November, but gamers anticipating a PC release have a little while longer to wait…

It's the news that GTA fans across the world have been waiting for: Grand Theft Auto V has officially been given a PC release date, and will also be coming to PlayStation 4 (PS4) and Xbox One consoles within the next few weeks.

The game's developer Rockstar North confirmed the PC version's UK release date will be Tuesday 27 January, 2015, while players with either of the two newest consoles can get their hands on it a couple of months earlier, from Tuesday 18 November, 2014.

According to Rockstar, players can expect a range of additions and improvements to the game, including new vehicles and weapons, more diverse wildlife, denser traffic, a new foliage system, wilder weather and enhanced damage effects.

Since last September, when GTA V had its original launch on PS3 and Xbox 360, the game's sold in excess of 35 million copies worldwide.

Rockstar announced the release dates on its company blog: "Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC will feature a range of major visual and technical upgrades to make Los Santos and Blaine County more immersive than ever.

"It will also feature enhanced radio selections with over 100 additional new songs and new DJ mixes from returning DJs across the game's 17 radio stations."

Existing players will be able to transfer their Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progression to any of the new versions of the game.
