Grand Theft Auto 5 PC Rumors: Release Date Set for March 2014, Says Norwegian Retailer

Grand Theft Auto 5 for the PC may have had its release date leaked by an unamed Norwegian retailer.

IBTimes reported that this retailer said they have received pre-orders and the game is set to arrive for March 19, 2014. However, they also note that this may be inaccurate as 100 proof is not present.

Also, GTA admins have been responding to people on their site with, "Keep an eye out for info on that on our newswire page:," when asked about GTA 5 on the PC.

A new AMD Catalyst driver is on its way for the game as well. The AMD Catalyst driver has a support of GTA5.exe. This would suggest that a PC version is in the works. Exe is coding for a computer coding extension. AMD drivers are for graphics cards on computers among other things.

Other rumors listed in stores have listed a GTA 5 steam key to be preordered online, citing a summer 2014 release date, according to SidTech.

"The pre-orders tell us that those who pre-order will have to wait for summer next year for the release. We take the summer to mean somewhere between July and September 2014," the website writes. "You do have to take this with a pinch of salt as at the moment Rockstar have not spoken up about a released date. Personally we thought that that Rockstar would launch GTA 5 for the PC before we got to see it on the PS4 and Xbox One."

In other news for the game, GTA Online received a new team mode called "Capture" today.

"This GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations brings a whole new level of adversarial action to the world of Los Santos and Blaine County. Strategy plays a huge role as you run decoys, set traps and place obstacles to ensure your enemies don't get close to your goods. These new Jobs are accessible in Freemode and spread across the four different modes," Rockstar Games said in their release.
