They took their sweet time delaying the living crap out of GTAIV and it was probably the most disappointing GTA I've played.

Funny enough, the actual soul of GTA magically appeared in the "episodic content" that just happened to be announced at the very same time as the huge delay started.

They usually release GTA games in Oct for console and March for PC, with the exception of GTA IV which I think they had problems with on the PS3 which is why it was delayed.

I wouldn't care even if they took an extra year, as long as they come out with a glitch-free dx11 game, I'm fine with it being postponed.

As long as they make something better than the skeleton that was GTA IV. San Andrea kept me happy for YEARS, and some ever since the free online multiplyer mod, which is possibly the most fun you can have with 6 other friends LAN.

GTA V should have:

1. great story, picking up where the great GTA: EFLC TBoGT left us;

2. optimized engine;

3. DX11 properly implemented;

Max Payne 3 already uses RAGE with DX11, so there shouldn't be any doubts that GTA V will have an improved version of it, so I doubt they are having problems with the engine at this time, so the efforts should concentrate on the story and content creation. The problem they might be having is to put all the content in current generation consoles, especially the Xbox 360.

If it was delayed on purpose to be released with the new consoles, it would sell a lot less given the reduced market it would have. GTA IV was released in 2008, when the current generation of consoles had been on sale for 2 - 3 years, so considering the GTA series sells like crazy, it would not be the best decision to make, but then again as I said, it will be difficult to put all the content on current generation consoles, especially the Xbox 360, so it could happen.

All I care about, is that it's optimized. GTA IV runs pathetically, even on a beast rig.

I base my GPU upgrades around GTA. guess I keep my 560SE a bit longer redface.gif

I bought my 8800GT for GTA IV and that was a mistake even at 1680x1050. When that card pooped out a few months ago I got a 560SE and even this card can't do much more than 1680x1050 @ ~40FPS while it maxes my other games.

Don't base the GPU you need on GTA IV tongue.gif If you could run MP3 fine you should be able to run GTA V without any problems.
