GTA 5 PC delayed again to April 14
The Windows PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will now arrive April 14, while heists are finally set to launch in Grand Theft Auto Online on March 10.
The new date for GTA 5 on PC represents the third delay for that version. Rockstar originally announced last June that it planned to release the PC version alongside the remastered PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions last fall. In September, the company delayed the launch to Jan. 27, and last month, Rockstar pushed the release date back by nearly two months to March 24. The latest delay means that fans will have to wait an extra three weeks.
"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 Games said in a blog post today. As a "gesture of thanks," the post reads, anyone who has pre-ordered the PC version will receive an additional $200,000 of in-game money in GTA Online.
