This morning, a collective "Noooooooooo!" was shouted by PC players anxiously awaiting the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V when it was announced the new release date would be pushed again to April 14, 2015 - bringing the grand total of delays to 4 rescheduled dates.
To accompany the announcement, GTA V Heists, a feature PC and console gamers have been waiting for since the game was originally released over a year ago on September 17th 2013 is scheduled to release to consoles on March 10th.
Here's the official announcement:
GTAV for PC will be arriving on April 14th at retail and as a digital download. 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. 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.
As always, we ask for the GTA PC community’s understanding and assistance in helping to report any concerns during the early days of launch when those inevitable initial teething issues arise on the new platform. If you do experience issues please visit Rockstar Games Support and send feedback to [email protected] – we’ll be closely monitoring the situation and addressing any hitches as quickly as we can.
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is our most graphically and technically advanced version yet, fully optimized to support a broad range of current hardware (system specifications) and features a host of PC-specific enhancements including greater levels of detail, deep configuration options and ultra-high-definition support – as well as the powerful new Rockstar Editor for recording, staging and editing original custom videos.
We thank GTA players worldwide for their patience in awaiting these big game updates and we are excited to bring both Heists and GTAV for PC to you very soon. Please stay tuned for lots more information in the weeks ahead and for now, check out some new screens showing action from Heists.
