Grand Theft Auto Online Heists Coming to Xbox One and PS4 in March, GTA V for PC Delayed to April
Rockstar announced today on its official site that its long-awaited feature for Grand Theft Auto V, Online Heists, will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One on March 10th.
The developers’ statement on the feature:
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.
Meanwhile, a bout of bitter news for PC players was also revealed: that version of GTA V has been delayed until April 14th. Online Heists will launch day one for that version, however:
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.
It continues with a call for PC players to report any technical issues during early launch, as well as a reminder that this port will be the “most graphically and technically advanced version yet.”
