Grand Theft Auto V – PC Delayed to April 14th
Grand Theft Auto V has been the most highly acclaimed video game release of 2014, and understandably so. It has improved upon its predecessors in all aspects, initially released for last-gen consoles, it later found its way to current-gen with many specific upgrades. PC gamers have been waiting for some time for their chance to experience this amazing game, and were quite disappointed when it was initially pushed to early 2015. A second delay followed pushing the game even further to March 24th.
It seems that Rockstar is not making any compromises in ensuring that the PC crowd gets the best version of Grand Theft Auto V available,
as they have added another small delay to the already long time coming pC version of Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar has released the following statement:
” 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 clarified that they want to have the best polished game at launch and that the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V will be the best version available, and will include numerous enhancements.
It will feature higher quality visual assets, as well as support for Ultra High Definition.
Here are Rockstar's detailed description:
We are excited to announce that the launch of Heists for GTA Online is scheduled for March 10th. We know it’s been a wait, and appreciate your patience. 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.
GTAV for PC
GTAV for PC will be arriving on April 14th at retail and as a digital download. 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.
As always, we ask for the GTA PC community’s understanding and assistance in helping to report any concerns during the early days of launch when those inevitable initial teething issues arise on the new platform. If you do experience issues please visit Rockstar Games Support and send feedback toGTAOnline@rockstargames.com – we’ll be closely monitoring the situation and addressing any hitches as quickly as we can.
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is our most graphically and technically advanced version yet, fully optimized to support a broad range of current hardware (system specifications) and features a host of PC-specific enhancements including greater levels of detail, deep configuration options and ultra-high-definition support – as well as the powerful new Rockstar Editor for recording, staging and editing original custom videos.
We thank GTA players worldwide for their patience in awaiting these big game updates and we are excited to bring both Heists and GTAV for PC to you very soon. Please stay tuned for lots more information in the weeks ahead and for now, check out some new screens showing action from Heists.
It has also been noted that Online Heists will see a March 10th release. Grand Theft Auto V will release on April 14th for the PC platform. We will bring you any additional information prior to its release when it becomes available.
