It is with a heavy heart that IncGamers must report the delay of Grand Theft Auto V to 14 April, and the passing of Rockstar’s ability to stick to a PC release schedule. Rockstar’s ability to stick to a PC release schedule had been in poor health for some time, but has now, sadly, died.
First it was coming in January 2015, then it was coming in March and today GTA V is said to be arriving in April. Until we get to about mid-March and then it’ll be coming in May, probably.
“Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of [GTA V],” says whoever has his fingers at the keys of Rockstar’s official site. “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.”
They’re also getting their excuses in nice and early (or ‘are being realistic about PC port launch troubles’ depending on how you feel,) stating: “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.”
GTA V will be released on 14 April for the PC. Unless it isn’t.
