Rockstar Games has announced the third delay for the PC release of Grand Theft Auto 5, which pushes the title back to April 14th, while the heists for Grand Theft Auto Online will arrive on March 10th.
Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC was originally planned to launch with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. In September, Rockstar delayed it to January 27th, and last month it was pushed back to March 24th.
“Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC,” Rockstar said in a blog post today, in part. “As a gesture of thanks for your understanding, we will grant anyone who has pre-ordered the game an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online.”
“We are excited to announce that the launch of Heists for GTA Online is scheduled for March 10th,” Rockstar said of the highly anticipated game mode. “We know it’s been a wait, and appreciate your patience. Heists will bring a brand new 4-player cooperative gameplay experience to GTA Online, giving players the chance to team up to pull off a string of intense, multi-part raids and robberies across Los Santos and Blaine County. Over the next couple of weeks, we will have more information about the launch of Heists and about other new features that we will release with it.”
