Grand Theft Auto V on PC has been delayed for another three weeks, as Rockstar announces a release date for the long-awaited Online Heists.
Originally slated for release on the 27th January, GTA V on PC was then pushed back to the 24th March, now in a blog post Rockstar announced that it is now scheduled for release on the 14th April.
“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.” The developer said.
As an extra way of saying sorry, Rockstar added that: “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.”
Online Heists, a long-promised 4 player co-op mode, will be released as DLC for the console version of the game on the 10th March, with the feature being available at launch for PC.
“We know it’s been a wait, and appreciate your patience.” Rockstar said. “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.”
