In late February, developer Rockstar announced that the PC version of its open world title had been delayed again. 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 April 14 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 in February.
The deal is available through Green Man Gaming’s VIP section, which users can sign up for at no cost.
