Rockstar delays Grand Theft Auto IV for the PC

By on
Looks like the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto IV will arrive a bit later than expected. Originally slated for a November 18 launch, Rockstar has officially pushed back the release by two whole weeks to December 2, even though the console versions of the critically-acclaimed shooter have been out since April this year.

While the company did not give any reasons for the delay, GTA IV for the PC will feature new enhancements and additions over its console counterparts, so hopefully the wait will be worth it. Rockstar also took the opportunity to post the game’s minimum and recommended system requirements, which appear similar to those previously leaked by Microsoft’s Games for Windows site. Check them out after the jump.
Minimum System Requirements:

* OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3
