“Grand Theft Auto 5” may not be coming to PC until March, and heists may not be available in the online mode for months either.
Last week rumors regarding Rockstar delaying its upcoming release of “Grand Theft Auto 5” for the PC, which was scheduled for Jan. 27, swirled when the action-adventure game’s Steam listing release date changed from Jan. 27 to “early 2015.” Rockstar responded to the situation on one of its online forums when eager fans inquired about the potential delay.
“'GTA V' will be coming to PC on Jan. 27,” the developer promised Saturday in a post on its Rockstar forums. “We have not announced any changes to this date at this time.”
However, according to well-known “GTA 5” tipster Dominic C., aka DomisLive, fans may not see heists launch in the online mode of the game until sometime during the end of the first quarter of 2015, the same “GTA 5” will reach the PC.
Dominic mentions that the release date given in the Steam listing is vague on purpose, and that the PC release date may not come by Jan. 27. Despite Rockstar’s promise, the Steam listing still doesn’t give an actual date.
Another delay would be no surprise to “GTA 5” fans. Last year, we were promised in April that heists were “coming this spring.” They still aren’t available.
In late December, leaked source code revealed some of the new heist cheats and mission locations. The leak was also discussed by Domislive, and it revealed a number of interesting tidbits about the coming feature – a promising hint that heists may be coming in the near future.
When do you think Rockstar will actually release its heists feature?
