When it comes to developer Rockstar Games, PC gamers tend to wait a while before their IPs are brought over to the platform. This holds true for the developer’s popular Grand Theft Auto franchise. So it shouldn’t surprise us that Grand Theft Auto V for PC has been delayed to April 14.


“Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game,” writes Rockstar on its website. “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.”


This isn’t the first time that the game has been pushed back. Originally slated for release on January 27, 2015, the developer delayed the PC version’s release to March 22. A move that wasn’t welcome considering that GTA V had been released on September 17, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. However, Rockstar has been working on an updated version of the game for the current generation of consoles, released last year in November, which also meant a PC version at last. Now, PC gamers will have to wait until April 14 to finally pick up a copy of the game.


However, the updated version of GTA V will include a new first-person mode, a first for the series, along with enhancements and additions to the game. So a delay this time around is understandable given the scope of the updated version.


At this point, though, we are used to getting games from Rockstar much later than the consoles. Hopefully, the PC version of GTA V will be optimized for the platform. Until then, we still have GTA IV with all of its mods.
