Rockstar has confirmed the delay of the PC release of Grand Theft Auto IV, reflected on retailers' sites earlier this week. The game has been pushed from November 18th to December 2nd. The developer did not cite particular reasons for the hold up, reports IGN, but we can assume it's due in part to typical, last minute bug squashing and system optimization. On that note, Rockstar did finally release official system specs:

  • OS: Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) / XP (Service Pack 3)
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 Ghz / AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4 Ghz
  • Memory: 1.5 GB RAM; 16 GB hard drive space
  • Video card: 256 MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
