Rockstar has cleared up rumours that Grand Theft Auto V for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One had slipped into 2015, and confirmed that the game is still on target for release later this year.

When asked by a fan on the developer's support page whether the game had slipped, Rockstar replied that the "Fall 2014" [spring 2014, ANZ] date "has not changed".

The new-gen and PC editions of Grand Theft Auto V will offer "enhancements and new details", including technical advancements such as "increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic and enhanced resolutions".

Players of Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be able to transfer their saved characters and progress in Grand Theft Auto Online to the PC, PS4 or Xbox One version (as that data is saved in the cloud using Rockstar Social Club).
