GTA 5 PC Download Requirements and Release Date


Even though Rockstar Games hasn’t disclosed any details about the launch of the GTA 5 PC version, there are still a lot of people who are curious as to what the download requirements for this version will be.

Others, just like with the rest, are also very eager to know the actual release date of the game. As you know, the game is very addicting and is filled with one-of-a-kind adventures.

Download Requirements

Just like with any kind of video game, the GTA 5 PC version would require that you have a high speed Internet for you to be able to download the game well. As for the system requirements, refer to the following below.

  • Processor – Intel Core 2 Duo 2.6 GHz and higher
  • RAM – 2 GB and higher
  • Video Card – 512 MB NVIDIA 7900 and higher
  • Hard Disk Space – 25 up to 40 GB
  • Operating System – Windows XP or Windows 7

It is absolutely necessary that your PC meets the requirements listed above or you could encounter problems along the way.

Release Date

The rumor about the March release date started when one Brazilian retailer said that he received confirmation from the game developer that the actual release date for the GTA 5 PC version is on March 12. But when some people raised this to RockStar Games, they did not confirm.

According to the Brazilian distributor, he sees no problem in letting the world know about the release date that he knows. Whether this is a rumor or not, the only thing that the fans are hoping is for RockStar to push through with their plans to release the PC version, whether it is in March or anytime this year.

Tuesdays or Fridays

The Brazilian distributor’s claim appears convincing but some insiders have refuted this claim, saying that release dates of games are often on a Tuesday or Friday. March 12 is on a Wednesday so there won’t be any game release on that day.

On the other hand, Amazon has another claim. One of the customers said that he spoke with a representative from the company and according to them, the release date of GTA 5 PC version is indeed in March but it is not on the 12th, rather the 18th. This is somehow more convincing because 18th happens to be a Tuesday and as mentioned, game releases falls either on a Tuesday or Friday.

There have been lots of rumors spreading all over the Internet on the actual release date of the GTA 5 PC version. You can read it on gaming sites, forums, discussion boards, social network sites, and many more. But not unless RockStar Games will confirm any of these, all these rumors will remain just rumors.

If you are one of those who are anticipating the arrival of Grand Theft Auto V on PC, the best thing that you can do now is to wait for further updates. And now that you knew the system requirements needed, you better get your computer ready for this addicting game.
