Rockstar has again delayed the release date for Grand Theft Auto V on PC, and announced the official date for the launch of Online Heists.

The PC version will now be launching on April 14, several weeks after the previous March 24 date (which was already pushed back several months from initial announcements). The long-awaited Online Heists for the existing versions of the game will be arriving on March 10--not long to go now barring another delay.

"GTAV for PC will be arriving on April 14th at retail and as a digital download," Rockstar posted on its newswire. "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."

The PC version of the game is on par with the new Xbox One and PS4 editions, offering first person perspective and improved graphics over the original Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. PC of course has the advantage of mod support, and fans are certainly needing to excercise patience as the release lags well behind the others. As for Online Heists:

"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."
