GTA 5 is an undeniably huge game, and PC users will have the chance to see it in all it's glory sooner than they might have thought!

A release date for Rockstar's epic violent game was leaked recently through a Danish retailer's website - and where Rockstar had previously only had the game listed as coming out in "Fall 2014", we were suddenly given a much more specific date: November 14th.
