After a series of frustrating delays, Rockstar Games has finally landed on a release date for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. The game will hit PC on March 24th, 2015, four months after launching on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Rockstar admits that delaying the game wasn’t an easy decision, but the PC version needs a few extra weeks of polish and testing.

The good news is that Online Heists are scheduled to be available at release, although considering how many times we’ve heard that Heists are “just around the corner,” we’re going to remain skeptical until they actually go live. Heists will supposedly launch in the weeks before the PC release.
