In what can only be described as a disappointing turn of events, Rockstar has delayed the launch of the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V for a second time.

The game originally hit store shelves on September 17, 2013, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It arrived more than a year later – November 18, 2014, to be exact – on Microsoft and Sony’s next generation consoles sporting a new first-person mode, improved graphics, longer draw distances, more wildlife and denser traffic, among other improvements.

A PC version was supposed to launch late last year alongside the PS4 and Xbox One variants before being pushed back to January 27. Unfortunately, PC gamers will now have to wait an additional two months – until March 24 – to finally get their hands on the best-selling game of 2013.

Rockstar apologized for the shift in the date, citing the need for a few extra weeks of testing and polishing to make it as good as possible.
