PC fans of Rockstar’s flagship franchise will have to wait even longer for GTA V.

Today, by way of their online newsroom, Rockstar announced that the game has been pushed back from its projected January 27 release to March 24. Originally slated to release alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, it was delayed once before back in September of last year. This means the PC version will have been in development for a year and half longer than PS3 and Xbox 360 versions; a total of six years overall.

The PC release of the game will include all of the new features that players enjoyed in the PS4 and Xbox One iterations, including first-person mode, higher traffic density, and improved textures. Alongside several 4K screenshots from the upcoming game, Rockstar also unveiled just how powerful your PC will have to be to run it:
