As is customary when announcing such delays, Ubisoft says the extra time will allow it to add additional polish and deliver a smooth experience across a variety of PC hardware.
Fans wanting to play the game at recommended specs may require a GPU upgrade, given the 3 GB VRAM requirement.
The developer-publisher said it will use the extra weeks to further test and polish the game and promised that the PC version will be accompanied by the 30-player GTA Online, complete with Online Heists.
You’ll need at least a Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz CPU and Geforce GTX 660 graphics card (or AMD equivalents) and 6 GB of RAM to run the long-awaited RPG.
The GTX 560 (or equivalent GPU) is a minimum requirement, along with 4 GB RAM and a Core i5-750 @2.67 Ghz or equivalent CPU.
The PC version of Watch Dogs requires a minimum of 6 GB RAM and a DirectX 11-compatible graphics card with 2 GB video RAM.
