GTA V PC version delayed to April 14, Heists coming to Xbox gamers March 10

There's good news and bad news for fans of Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar Games stated today that the long awaited Heists mode for GTA Online will launch on March 10 for the console version of the game, including the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions. Sadly, the long awaited PC port of the open world action game has been delayed yet again and is now scheduled for launch on April 14.

Rockstar stated:

"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."

PC gamers were previously told their version of GTA V would be launched on Jan. 27, before Rockstar announced a delay that pushed the date back to March 24. This new delay to April 14 pushes back the launch date by another three weeks. Rockstar said:

"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."
