GTA Online Heists Arriving 10th March, GTAV PC Delayed AGAIN

Do we really need to say anything more?
 
It's getting beyond a joke now but here we are, Rockstar have once again given us some dates for the release of GTA V on the PC, as well as heists for GTA Online. Some fans have been quick to point out that Rockstar haven't actually specified which year this time, which did make us giggle.
 
Rockstar do offer their "apologies" for the, what is this? The 4th or 5th delay now? An extra $ 200,000 in-game cash will be given to those who have pre-ordered... If social media commentary is to be believed then this counts for nothing. A rather substantial amount of people are really not happy about the whole debacle, with many canceling or have already canceled their pre-order out of sheer frustration, some even admit they will turn to other means of acquiring the game. Constant delays are never good news for a game, even for one as high profile as GTA V that benefits from people buying it regardless just because "it's GTA". The loss of trust from loyal gamers and early pre-order purchasers could hurt in the long run. It's probably technically impossible to know just how many fans have actually canceled their order, though, and also how many were going to order but have since changed their mind.
 
There is somewhat of a silver lining to this news though, at least for the console gamers, as Heists for GTA Online are apparently on track for release on the 10th March, which is just a couple of weeks away now. Rockstar promise more updates about this and other unnamed "new features" over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully they don't delay the news updates too.
 
Here's some new screenshots showing action from heists:

GTAV PC Release Delayed Again, First Screenshots at 4K, System Specs Revealed

Rockstar have taken the decision to delay the PC release of GTA V once again (oh well, it happens to every GTA). This time the date has slipped another two months to the 24th March, reasoning that more time is needed for final testing and polish. Some of the more cynical readers may be aware that this is when Rockstar's fiscal year ends, which pushes GTAV's sales into the next fiscal year... Though one wonders why it wouldn't have been delayed until March in the first place. Regardless of the real reasoning (it's kind of irrelevant at this point), fans will be expecting nothing short of a flawless port now. Judging by the system specs revealed today that might actually be a reasonable expectation. Some recent major titles have had very high spec requirements meaning only the latest powerful computers had a chance of running the game smoothly, but Rockstar seem to be making a decent effort to make sure as many people can play GTA V as possible.
 
If you have a PC or laptop bought or built within the last year or two you'll most likely be fine, anything older will probably struggle. Specs have been included at the end of this post, but if you're not sure you'll be able to play it, feel free to ask in our forums for suggestions or recommendations.
 
Details

  • Will run at 1080p and 60fps with up to 4K resolution and support for up to triple monitor configurations, as well as NVidia 3D Vision for up to triple monitor setups.
  • GTA Online for PC, which will support up to 30 players, will launch alongside GTAV for PC and will include GTA Online Heists.
  • Includes the new Rockstar Editor, which gives players a full suite of editing tools to create and publish gameplay clips direct to both Social Club and YouTube.

Rockstar Finally Reveal Heists for GTA Online

After an entire year of waiting (and complaining), GTA V fans finally got what they've been wanting today when Rockstar revealed heists for GTA Online, due out in an update early in the New Year (for real this time). A short trailer gives us a glimpse of what 4 player co-op teams can expect in the game.

 

 

 

Players [will] plan, prepare and execute multi-tiered Heists across Los Santos and Blaine County. These will require tight communication and coordination, with players taking on specified roles at each point to accomplish multiple objectives on the way to each Heist’s epic finale. Featuring new gameplay, new vehicles, new weapons, new clothing and much more.

 

For those of you who want to know more about heists, and reasons why you've been waiting for more than a year, head over to IGN for an in-depth interview with GTA Online producer and lead mission designer Imran Sarwar.

 

TL;DR: Turns out programming heists is really really hard.
