“Grand Theft Auto V’s” PC fans just can’t get a break. The PC version of Rockstar’s open world action-adventure title has been delayed again, according to the Rockstar Newswire on Tuesday. The game will reach players on April 14 at retail stores or as a digital download.
In December, rumors regarding Rockstar delaying its upcoming release of “Grand Theft Auto 5” for the PC, which was originally 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, assuring players the game would be available on the original date. However, the release date was changed to March 24 in mid-January, disappointing PC fans.
“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,” Rockstar said on its blog on Tuesday.
The good news is that heists will be coming to “GTA 5” on March 10. Heists were announced during spring of last year, but New York City-based Rockstar failed to deliver on its promise for nearly an entire year.
Heists have been sought after by players since early spring. Heists are elaborate story missions that were first introduced in “Grand Theft Auto Vice City.” For the past 12 months, the studio sidestepped questions regarding the release of the feature. Rockstar originally promised heists would launch when the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of “GTA 5” reached buyers, which was last November.
