Grand Theft Auto IV will be released for PC on 21st November in Europe, Rockstar announced today.

Pleasantly, that's just a few days after the PC version arrives in North America on 18th November.

Rockstar founder Sam Houser says it "looks and plays beautifully on PC and we can't wait for people to play it".

A PC version of the game has been rumoured since before the PS3 and 360 versions were even released, but Rockstar has never previously confirmed it.

The most telling sighting was a rating on the ESRB website, although that was removed a few hours later.

GTA IV came out worldwide on 29th April and Rockstar said in early June that it had sold 8.5 million copies.

The game charts the course of hero Niko Bellic as he arrives in Liberty City - a caricature of New York - and has to embark on a life of crime to get his cousin and himself out of trouble.

The PS3/360 version picked up 10/10 in our review.
