Grand Theft Auto 5’s release date has been delayed… AGAIN. I’m sorry everyone no longer will we be playing from March 24 expect to wait at least until April 14. This is according to a new update on Rockstar’s Newswire. That’s the second delay in six weeks and only affects PC gamers but at this rate it seems like we will never see it.
Rockstar had this to say: “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.”
We all expect a few bugs and connection issues when the game finally appears. But I can’t imagine the state it must be in to warrant this many delays, they went on to say: “As always, we ask for the GTA PC community’s understanding and assistance in helping to report any concerns during the early days of launch when those inevitable initial teething issues arise on the new platform.”
I know how much anticipation is riding on this release so I know the blow another delay deals, but I cannot fault Rockstar for wanting the game to be perfect for us. We don’t need another Ubisoft release fiasco on our hands. So let’s wait patiently for what will be the most graphically polished edition of the game.
If it gets to much, load up your steam library and play the 100 games you bought in last year’s sales you haven’t touched yet. I’m assuming that’s not just me.
