Grand Theft Auto 5 PC release date delayed yet again

Online Heists coming to console on 10th March.

Rockstar has delayed the PC release date of Grand Theft Auto 5 again - this time, until 14th April.

It is the third launch date that Rockstar has announced for the game's PC version. It had previously been due to arrive on 27th January, and then on 24th March.

The developer has also announced a release date for GTA5's highly-anticipated Online Heists mode, which will launch as DLC for the game's console version on 10th March and be available from launch on PC.

"We know it's been a wait, and appreciate your patience," Rockstar explained in a new blog post. "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."

The developer also apologised to its patient PC followers, and offered an olive branch of in-game cash for those who has GTA5 pre-ordered.

"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," it continued.

"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."
